I can only repeat what many other have said: this is a magnificent building, serene and reverent inside, ideal for a contemplative pause (but not many chairs). Do note the kiosk on the left where there are guide books, icons, etc. and also some very modestly-priced CDs (about 500 dinars) of ethereal Serbian and Russian a capella liurgy. How long... More

We rented an apartment just over one block from this church. The night views with the lights on are stunning. During the day, the church has a magnificent presence as well. We walked around the grounds, but entering the main church is disappointing as 95% of it is under wraps. They are reconstructing it, so all of the walls are... More

We walked from skadarlija to here; took about 30 mins, the church appears in most views of Belgrade- stunning up close and such a serene place to be considering the hustle and bustle from the walk up

Also Kalemegdan fortress. You'll marvel at the craftsmanship with the temple and all the buildings in Belgrade.

I would have rated this 'Excellent' rather than 'Very Good' if the inside were completed. It's a huge church and as beautiful as it is now, will be even better when complete. I liked the park like area outside.

Such great structure, really stands out especially at night. Shame there were no tours to learn more about it. Well worth the visit.

The temple is not just beautiful. it is also huge. When it will be finished in the inside it will be glorious. Worth a visit, the temple is also surrounded by a beautiful park, which makes the whole place ideal for relaxation and taking photos.

The largest Orthodox church in the world! Beautiful exterior and even unfinished the interior is very impressive. I imagine it will be many more years before this buildng will be completed. It has been a long drawn out process BUT will certainly be worth the wait. Instead of painted frescoes they re doing mosaic scenes.

The exterior is absolutely magnificent and can be viewed from many locales in the city. The interior is undergoing serious renovation which was detracting from its beauty; but it is enormous. I cannot imagine the space being filled to capacity. Sunlight streams in through the small windows at the top which adds to the feeling of reverence.
