Bishop’s Garden House

Marker ikona
Architecture
 

A small but interesting old house that decorates the panorama of the upper part of Vlaška street is a valuable example of classicist architecture which is extremely important for Zagreb.

Today, surrounded from three sides by a large condo complex called Mali Vatican, the so-called Bishop’s Garden House is much a much older work – nearly one hundred and fifty years old. Zagreb’s Bishop Maximilian Vrhovec (mythical founder of Maksimir park) had it built in 1790 according to a project of the Viennese architect Joseph Reymundo, the then empty land which had not yet been run over once by Vienna street, now by Vlaška road and street. It was a street of craftsmen and Kaptol serfs, future free peasants. The free-standing one-story house adorned with a mansard roof and tile decoration is a well-preserved example of late Baroque and classicist architecture, unique for Zagreb. Along the sides of the facades there were glass greenhouses attached to the Bishop’s garden until 1926.
