The Cathedral of Jesus’ Heart


The Cathedral of Jesus’ Heart is the Vrhbosna archbishop’s diocese. It was built based on Josip Vancas’ design in Neo-Gothic style with traces of Neo-Romanesque in reference to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Dijon and was completed in 1889. The exterior is a combination of yellow and reddish stone. Two towers over 40 meters high dominate the front. The west tower holds a church bell. The east tower has five smaller bells. The front is also ornamented with a rose window combining decorated stone and tracery, with a statue of Jesus Christ below it. The construction was originally initiated by the Vrhbosna Archbishop Josip Stadler whose tomb now nests inside the church.
