The interior of the church is a true Baroque Gesamtkunstwerk, a unity of style that perturbs the Early Gothic crucifix, imbedded in the middle of the main altar. The authors of the profuse marble Baroque sculptures in the interior are masters P. Lazzarini, A. Michelazzi and L. Pacassi. St. Vitus' is a unique Baroque rotunda of such monumental dimensions built in Croatia. The church is the only remaining part of a once vast Jesuit complex that included a seminary and a college, but was demolished in the period between the two world wars. The portal of the College has been preserved, however, by being transferred to the deanery next to St. Vitus.

Built in 1885 as a city theatre according to the design of the specialized Vienna Helmer and Fellner workshop, which designed similar buildings throughout the Austro-Hungary of the time. Matsch, Kauffungen and Fritsch, and the Klimt brothers, permanent associates of the workshop, were charged with equipping the theatre, contributing to the pronounced central European atmosphere of the town. The exterior is adorned by figurative compositions of Music and Drama by Venetian sculptor Benvenutti. The opening of the theatre was marked by a performance of Verdi's Aida.
