After the strong earthquake in Zagreb, damage to the cathedral is so great that the top of the cathedral's north tower must also be removed.
Immediately after Easter, plans are to remove the north tower, which from a height of 108 meters threatens to collapse, as well as some other parts of the Cathedral. This job requires one of the largest cranes in the country because it is a tower that is more than 100 meters high and weighs several tens of tons. A detailed inspection of the Cathedral with a smaller crane is underway, where experts detect in detail all the defects on the basis of which they will make an accurate plan for the descent of the north tower.
