Fodor's Review

Consecrated to Varaždin's patron saint in 1761 on the site of an older church, the Župna crkva Sv. Nikole is a Baroque structure that is more attractive on the outside than the inside. Note the false yet imposing white columns in the facade; the red-tiled, conical steeple; and the sculpture at the foot of the steeple of a firefighting St. Florian pouring a bucket of water onto a church, presumably an allusion to the fire that devastated Varaždin in 1776.
