Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Križevci

Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Križevci
The Greek Catholic Cathedral of The Holy Trinity, the seat of the Eparchy of Križevci, is an exceptionally valuable monument. On the same site once stood the Augustinian monastery, which was later handed over to the Franciscans. In 1777 empress Maria Theresa and Pope Pio VI made Križevci the seat of the Eparchy. It was only in 1801 that the Baroque architecture was adjusted to meet the needs of the Bishop's Residence and the Byzantine liturgy. The church changed its appearance in the period between 1895 and 1897. The internal reconstruction was performed in the Gothic revival style by the famous Zagreb architect, Herman Bolle, who also carried out the restoration of the Zagreb Cathedral's facade. Of special interest to all visitors to the Cathedral is the iconostasis painted by some of the most famous Croatian painters from late 19th and early 20th century.
