Zagreb Cathedral (Croatian: Zagrebačka katedrala) is a gorgeous Roman Catholic church located in Kaptol, the historical center of Zagreb, Croatia.
Six facts about the cathedral:
- The Gothic building was built in the 11th century; after the 1880 Zagreb earthquake, it was restored in the Neo-Gothic style by the Austro-Hungarian architect Hermann Bollé (1845–1926).
- It is the tallest sacral building (108 m/ 354 ft high) in Croatia.
- Highlights of the building include the exquisite baroque marble altars, a series of exquisite 13th-century frescoes, and a triptych by the German painter Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528).
- The organ has more than 6,000 flue pipes, seventy-eight registers, and four manuals; in fact, it is classified among the top ten finest and top-quality organs in the world.
- It is the most impressive Neo-Gothic style sacral building southeast of the Alps.
- On 22 March 2020, the cathedral was damaged in the earthquake.
