Pages 67 - 74
This article presents the style used in designing Eastern Orthodox churches by the architect Janko Holjac from Zagreb through the analysis of the Greek Catholic church in Petrovci and the cathedral in Plaški. His style may be defined as a mixture of Romantic Rundbogenstyle coupled with the elements used by the architect Hermann Bollé and the elements of Russian architecture of Historicism. Therefore Janko Holjac deserves a special place in the history of the 19th century Croatian architecture.
