Zagreb Cathedral, 1978

Total Croatia News

Zagreb Cathedral has been around since the 13th ct (as an official Cathedral; records suggest that a smaller church had already been there when King Ladislaus moved the bishop’s chair from Sisak to Zagreb in 1093) and sometimes it feels like the scaffolding has been there just as long. 

People from Zagreb and tourists alike keep wondering when it will be finished, and noone really has a definite answer  – all we know is that the renovation process started in 1990 and that it has to be very detailed because the limestone used in the previous renovation process was of poor quality, and due to the Cathedral being renovated so many times, new layers, which require special attention, keep popping up durgin the process.

Some sources say that the reasonable end date is 2019, so two more years and we might finally be able to see what the towers look like without the scaffolding.
