Kaptol Square is dominated by this cathedral, formerly known as St Stephen’s. Its twin spires – seemingly permanently under repair – soar over the city. Although the cathedral’s original Gothic structure has been transformed many times over, the sacristy still contains a cycle of frescos dating from the 13th century. An earthquake in 1880 badly damaged the cathedral and reconstruction in a neo-Gothic style began around the turn of the 20th century. Inside, don’t miss the baroque marble altars, statues and pulpit; and the tomb of Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac by Ivan Meštrović.
