Take in historic architecture and art at St. Mark's Church (Crkva sv. Marka). Notice the roof tiles, which depict a white castle on a red background--the coats of arms of the city of Zagreb. Watch for the Romanesque window and Gothic doorway that remain from the original structure. At the southern portal, admire the Gothic sculptures, which represent the twelve apostles, Joseph and Mary with baby Jesus, and St. Mark with the lion. On the northwest wall of the church, you can see the oldest coat of arms of Zagreb from 1499. In the church interior, keep an eye out for two statues by Ivan Mestrovic, considered by many to be the most famous Croatian sculptor of the 20th century.

St. Mark's Church (Crkva sv. Marka) Reviews
We went there some days ago and fortunately the spot was pretty alone ... so you can take a great picture from the street and with the church as a background. Located at the old town, this is one of..... more »
Interesting and historical building steps away from where I stay. Love the roof and its meaning. Nice details. more »
One of the places that is highly recommended to visit while in Zagreb, I find the St Mark's church to be quite interesting but yet not worth a must-visit. It is not as grand as the Zagreb Cathedral, and is much smaller in size, though I must say that the colourful roof tiles and the architecture is quite interesting. There are usually crowds here due to its popularity, but taking a picture here is not that difficult and the church is quite historic. One of Zagreb's top attraction, definitely, but good to have a sense of its history before visiting, or else it's just another church.
Iconic landmark of Zagreb. The beautiful rooftop made this church look so unique and outstanding. Cool place to stop by and there were not so many people when we get there.
