This is a truly magnificent building. It is the biggest Orthodox temple in the Balkans and one of the biggest Orthodox churches in the world. It is believed the remains of the first Serbian archbishop Saint Sava were burnt here. The only "flaw" of it is that decoration inside is still being done. The very construction of the temple started... More

Brilliant mosaic pictures inside the church. It should be praised for the ancient arts. The underground crypt is worth to visit also.

Apparently one of the largest orthodox churches in the world, and actually it still under construction so it's very interesting to see how such a church is built and how the decorations are made. Outside you can see ready marble elements to be installed inside.

It is a beautiful cathedral rich in history. I have just been to Ayasofya in Istanbul, so I got to appreciate this cathedral much more. It has same structural shape as Ayasofya, but its original beauty was more clearly seen. The basement had paintings all around including the ceilings and they were beautiful. It also had Romanov Russian Royal family... More

We visited here on a hot day, it's not too far to walk from the city centre, but once we got there we really wanted to sit down in the shade, there was not much shade, let alone seats. The seats were mainly taken up by homeless people! But really, we were here to see the church, it is in... More

The outside is great for photos but be prepared to have a few beggars approach you. The inside is unfinished and still looks very far from being completed. It's still worth going inside to see the progress and take pictures since very few large churches are still being completed.

Look great from outside,is one of the attractions "must see" when you're in belgrade,but i think they tried to copy Agia Sofia in Constantinoupolis.The interior is empty concrete walls most of them covered with plastic and scaffoldings in most of the parts, very disapponting inside.Nice surroundings,front park is great to have rest.The church is visible nearly from all city areas.I...
