Running south from St Mark’s Square, Ćirilometodska boasts a wealth of Baroque palaces that once belonged to the local aristocracy. The present name honours the Slavic apostles Ćiril and Metod (Cyril and Methodius) who devised the first Slavic script, known as Glagolitic (glagoljica), in the 9th century. The Greek Catholic church that stands midway along the street was also named after the two apostles. The church assumed its current form in the 19th century after a design by the architect Hermann Bolle.
