A replica of Zagreb’s distinctive St. Mark’s Church at a popular park of miniatures in the Australian capital…

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.
