Constructed on the groundplan scheme of the Greek cross, with strong volume gradation and dominant reinforced concrete dome, the church is the most significant sacral building of modern age in Croatia.

Standing at the intersection of Deželićeva and Primorska is a Church dedicated to St Blaise, a 4th century martyr famous for his gift of curing throat illnesses.

Begun in 1912, the church was designed by Viktor Kovačić and combines Byzantine influences, traditional Croatian styles and modern construction techniques to monumental effect. The reinforced concrete dome was the first of its kind in Croatia.

An exceptionally beautiful Nativity scene, the work of sculptor Vojta Braniša from 1916, is exhibited every year around Christmas.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.
