Marathoners connect two cathedrals

Marathoners connect two cathedrals
The marathon race ‘From Cathedral to Cathedral’ is the name of the traditional international super-marathon which connects Zagreb and Čazma cathedrals every March. The starting point of the 61.350 kilometer long race is located at Ban Jelačić Square in Zagreb, and the finish line is at the square in Čazma. Given that its path passes through beautiful landscape, the race is especially valued among long distance runners. This is a sporting event with a tradition that began on 29 November1976 and is highly valued in Croatian and international sporting circles.

Čazma is an old village that has in the past had great significance. On the basis of its turbulent and glorious past, Čazma has grown into a regional center of Northeast Moslavina.

Today it is known for its untouched nature - a paradise for recreationalists, hunters and fishermen. It is rich in cultural heritage, permanent exhibitions, and people who cherish the old customs, as well as being widely known for one of the most beautiful religious buildings in Croatia - the church of St. Mary Magdalene, one of the few parish churches with two towers. It is the only preserved building from the medieval golden age of Čazma. Studies have shown that the building of the church in late-Romanesque style was finished in 1240 and was later restored in the early Gothic style while its interior is rich in 18th century Baroque inventory.
