Kurija (from Latin "curia") is summary name for the buildings which are property of the catholic church. The name derives from "Curia Romana", which is the body of congregations, offices, permanent commissions....., etc. that assist the pope in the government and administration of the church.
The Croatian Catholic Church has its seat in the town of Zagreb, more precisely, the entire area of the Kaptol belongs to the church. There are number of fine looking houses and palaces all alongside Nova Ves street serving as the Bishop's residences or important church offices. Each curia is homestay of the canons, highly ranked priests who are governing of the Croatian congregation.
The Provost, built between 1543 and 1571, is the seat of the President of canonical choir.
