An earlier cathedral on this site dated from the 12th century, but was largely destroyed during the Tartar invasion in 1242. What you see today dates from between the 13th and 16th centuries; the elegant neo-Gothic façade and twin spires were added by Austrian architect Herman Bolle in the late 19th century. Inside, behind the main altar, note the sarcophagus of the former Archbishop Alojzije Stepinac, which bears a relief by sculptor Ivan Meštrović. Stepinac remains a controversial figure in Croatia due to his alleged collaboration with the extreme right during the Second World War.
