St. Mark's Church

Iconic Zagreb monument

St. Mark's Church is located in the Upper Town on the St Mark's Square, as well as the Croatian Parliament. It is one of the oldest architectural monuments of the city of Zagreb – mentioned for the first time in 1256. The tradition of the organ in St. Mark's Church dates back to the 14th century, in 1359, when the records mention the organ player Nikola, which is also the first written mention of organ and organ player in Croatia.
The church got its present neo-gothic look during Schmid's Restoration in the 19th century. Schmidt covered the church with a recognizable colorful roof. The south side of the roof was decorated with two coats of arms: the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia and the coat of arms of the city of Zagreb. The most prominent sculptor of Croatian modern sculpture – Ivan Meštrović – also had a great influence on the church's decoration in the 20th century.
