Beautiful outside and inside. The chandelier is amazing and so pretty! I felt weird taking pictures, but no one stopped me, so I guess it's allowed? Peaceful inside, nice to sit and take in the beautiful gold.

Located on the site of the old church which was destroyed during WWII by Croats' Ustasa movement, this building is very important symbol of rebuilding and overcoming adversities. Beautiful church with gorgeous architecture and style. A must-see.

This is a very nice cathedral right in the heart of the city center where everything takes place. It is adjacent to a well kept park also full of old buildings. If one is in the city center, one cannot miss it.

This is one of the beautiest example of building ortodox church in Europe. Outside is builded from vulcanic stone from Mesopotamia with gold plated towers, inside is classical with frescoes. Renovated few years ago.
