The Church of Saint Sava is the largest Orthodox church in the world and well worth visiting when in Belgrade. Very impressive from the outside and inside, especially at night when its lit up!

A City landmark, and well preserved. When I visited there was scaffolding inside and restoration work underway, however this seemed to re-inforce the scale of this tremendous building with its huge high domes and wide open spaces. Surrounded by parkland next to the main library. Free entry. When in Belgrade, beware of Dishonest Rogue Taxi Drivers...!! It is a shame... More

Unbelievable that somebody had the guts to start the building of this largest orthodox church in the world. Outside a 24/7 eye catcher, inside still a lot to do. Was there in February this year and now again. Lot of progress and much more to do. Strange experience to be in a building representing so many religious decades and also... More

The biggest ortodox church in the Balkans. Built in the place where the turks burned the bones of Saint Sava. It is truly an amazing place. You can really feel the presence of God. They still have a lot of work on the inside , but "Rome wasn't built in a day" ! :)

It's the largest Orthodox church in the world. The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church. It's built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains were burned in XVI century.

It is smartly positioned big church, actually operating but not finished from interior. Every full hour one can hear the bell ringing melody, night lightening is cute, the surrounding plateau is arranged with fountains, children playgrounds, benches, fresh grass and there are cafes overlooking the complex. Nice place to relax after waling around the town.

It is the largest Orthodox Church in Serbia. If you are Orthodox or are interested in history, this is the right place for you.
