Impressive sight Apr 10, 2009
The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (Katedrala Marijinog Uznesenja) locals always refer to simply as The Cathedral. It is a wonder of Neo- Gothic architecture with two pointed towers springing from the sides (the word is that the towers are not the same height, although most often it is said that both are 105m tall). The Cathedral has been constructed, destroyed, reconstructed, demolished and rebuilt since the 13th century. The last reconstruction was done in the 19th century, after the great earthquake. Even now it seems to be in permanent state of exterior renovations as the effects of time have to be constantly thwarted. Do check the chandeliers- the word is that they were a donation from a Las Vegas hotel/casino. Yeah, canons deny knowing this.
