The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

This late historicist church was built in 1902.

+385 1 48 03 000
+385 1 49 23 636

It was designed by Zagreb architect Janko Holjac and it makes a perfect example of neo-baroque sacral architecture. It was built owing to the influence and a donation of 60,000 forints by Bishop Juraj Haulik. In addition to this second biggest church in Zagreb (after the cathedral), a monastery was also built. The basilica is located in Lower Town's central part. Since no zoning on micro-level has been performed, the overall impression of the building is somewhat impaired. Its broad nave is covered with a barel-like valut and is illuminated through high side-cahapels. Its plastic classicist-baroque decoration is in harmony with the modern spatial concept characterized by spaciousness and illumination. The church's front is highlighted with square belltowers which, in their upper part, become octagonal and are covered with domes. Domestic masters furnished the church and the main altar was designed by Hermann Bollé. In 1941, Pope Pius XII granted the church the honorary title of basilica minor.

I was very looking forward to coming to Zagreb, especially because my mother travelled with me. My people found out everything about it, so that we could see the main stuff in the city!

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.

I am looking forward to Zagreb as a destination where I always feel good. It seems it has been too long since the last time I was here, although it was just a year or so.
