Cathedral of the Assumption Reviews
Situated on the Kaptol, this Roman Catholic church is a monumental sacral building in Gothic style. Sacristy also in Gothic style. The spires can be seen for almost everywhere in the city. more »
This cathedral has an impressive facade, but alas, the interior is just average. The interior lacks stately impressions the stain glass is somewhat interesting more »
Didn't go inside unfortunately but it is pretty spectacular even from the outside. A huge cathedral that has quite a presence in the middle of the city.
Beautiful square; in front of the cathedral. Well maintained architecture. Also impressive size. If you want to get inside of the cathedral, don’t dress too revealing. On Sunday around noon, there’s a nice little show in the square (still have no clue what that is).
