The church was completely restored in the second half of the 19th century according to the plans of Viennese architects Friedrich Schmidt and Herman Bolle and again restored in the first half of the 20th century.
In the past, the square around the church took place in the main living of Gradec - fairs, trade, public punishment. At the altar of St. Cross in the church or in front of the church, during the history the members of the City Council, municipal judge and Croatian bans were giving the oath  and guilds would take their flags.
