Beautiful Liturgy on Sept 4 (old calendar). At least 300 in attendance. Outstanding choir!! I was transported- thanks be to God, who gives all good things!!

Sad to see so many beautiful places under restoration in Zagreb. This church's integrity is being preserved by a large amount of scaffolding both outside and inside. It is however still worth visiting for the beautiful interior murals. Alas they bear testament to the impact of the earthquakes back in 2020. Hopefully this church will be restored to it's full glory with the next two years.

Very nice church full of history, sadly one of the last orthodox ones that are opened.

Quiet and beautiful place. The interior is beautiful and the whole ambience is really relaxing and calm for a person.

One of the most beautiful churches that I visited while in Zagreb. Once you walk through the simple entrance you walk inside the Bible. The walls and ceilings show you all about the life of Jesus and more.

Kastelholma Castle

First record of Kastelholma (or Kastelholm) castle is from the year 1388 in the contract of Queen Margaret I of Denmark, where a large portion of the inheritance of Bo Jonsson Grip was given to the queen. The heyday of the castle was in the 15th and 16th centuries when it was administrated by Danish and Swedish kings and stewards of the realms. Kastelhoma was expanded and enhanced several times.

In the end of 16th century castle was owned by the previous queen Catherine Jagellon (Stenbock), an enemy of the King of Sweden Eric XIV. King Eric conquered Kastelholma in 1599 and all defending officers were taken to Turku and executed. The castle was damaged under the siege and it took 30 years to renovate it.

In 1634 Åland was joined with the County of Åbo and Björneborg and Kastelholma lost its administrative status.
