Fodor's Review

This majestic, single-naved church is the highlight of Osijek's downtown skyline. At 292 feet, its redbrick, neo-Gothic steeple is the second highest structure in Croatia. Built between 1894 and 1898 on the site of a former church of the same name by the architects Franz Langenberg of Germany and Robert Jordan of Austria, and on the initiative of the famous Đakovo-based bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer, it has no less than five altars, an unusually frescoed ceiling replete with individual praying figures human and divine, and stained-glass windows. The walls are painted with colourful frescoes.
