Katedrala Marijina Uznesenja [The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary]

Katedrala Marijina Uznesenja

A wonder of neo-Gothic artistry, the impressive and sharp looking towers stand out from nearly anywhere you are in the entire city. Though it's in an evidently permanent state of reconstruction, it's undeniably overwhelming and will push you to ponder those larger things we can see you've been avoiding. Go ahead and wander inside but don't forget to turn the mobile off. A brief history: 1093 - founded; 1242 - the initial Romanesque construction is finished. In the next 21 years it's heavily damaged in various sieges by the Tartars; 1624 - a series of sweeping fires practically destroys it; 1645 - another wave of fires picks up where the last left off. It's reconstructed; 1880 - sustains serious damage during an earthquake. A 12-year restoration takes place, at which time the neo-Gothic bell towers are raised skyward; 1990 - exterior renovations set in motion to battle against the effects of time. It continues to this day. Mass: 07:00, 08:00, 09:00, 18:00, Sunday 07:00, 08:00, 09:00, 10:00, 11:30, 18:00.

  • The tower walls around the cathedral were built between 1512 and 1521 because of the Turkish invasion. The tower is renaissance style it exists nowadays and is a unique example of tower surround the church. Unfortunately during the renovation done by Hermann Bollé in 19 th century the front wall was torn down.
