Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Roman Catholic cathedral, built in 1889. The architect of the cathedral was none other than Josip Vancaš (1859-1932), who combined elements of Romanesque and Gothic styles in this project. The cathedral was built on the site of a former Janissary camp where the Austro-Hungarian administration intended to build a town market.
