Église
“Put on your walking shoes and start your journey by exploring the hidden gems of the Upper Town. Another stunning church you’ll find here is called St Mark’s Church. Built-in the 13th century, St Mark’s Church is a world known for its colorful tiled roof. A medieval coat of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia on the left side, and the emblem of Zagreb on the right side are credited for making this church one of the most photographed places in Zagreb. Even though it’s open only during mass times, it is worth visiting especially because it contains sculptures by famous Ivan Mestrović. Luxurious parliament and government buildings stand alongside the church. Every Saturday, between April and October, you can see the change of the guard ceremony.”
