Archbishop's palace, Zagreb
Archdiocese of Zagreb
The Archbishop's palace in Zagreb, Kaptol 31, extends parallel to the Zagreb Cathedral, and is located south of the Cathedral, while the Archbishop's spiritual table is perpendicular to the palace and extends east of the Cathedral. The complex of the Archbishop's palace was built within the ramparts that protected it from the Turkish conquests. The building is a protected cultural property, and the first records of the buildings inside today's Archbishop's palace date back to the 13th century.
After two devastating earthquakes in 2020, the building suffered significant damage to the structure, facade, staircase and roof. The rehabilitation and strengthening of the structure is carried out with new building materials that are compatible with existing, classic materials. The strengthening method is minimally invasive and enables the preservation of the original construction characteristics in the exterior and interior of the building. The works will satisfy an essential condition for the building, which is mechanical stability and resistance.
