The replica of the 13th century church, which is one of the top tourist attractions in the Croatian capital, can be found at Cockington Green Gardens, which is a park of miniatures located in the Australian city of Canberra. The Cockington Green miniature village tourist attraction was opened in 1979 and features small replicas of a number of famous landmarks from all over the world.

The St. Mark’s church replica at the park has been created on a scale of 1-25 and was sponsored by the Croatian Embassy in Australia. Over 2,000 hours was needed to make the miniature with 45,000 roof tiles individually laid, the Cockington Green website noted.
