Beautiful church that is currently under construction inside. It is really gorgeous at night too with the fountains.

The building is wonderful outside but is only bare bones inside - they are reliant on voluntary contribution without any government assistance & have no idea when it will be completed

The St. Sava Temple is one of those things you just need to see hen in the city, but the inside is really still bare with lots of concrete. Under continued construction, so do not be disappointed. But its size and majestic presence well worth the short taxi ride from the centre

From the outside St. Sava is huge and very beautiful, the inside however is bare and could be for quite some time. I learned that many Serbian people don't approve of all the money being put into this project when the economy is already suffering. The area outside of it is nice to hangout.

Try to attend an orthodox church service (you may as well just stay in the background, they don't mind) and enjoy something different

The interior is not nearly completed but this in no way diminishes the experience. One of the largest Orthodox churches in the world. Standing in the interior and viewing the enormous scope of the dome is awe inspiring. It is an active church but open to the public at most times. It is a better experience if you have a... More

St Savage dominates the Belgrade skyline and is nicely floodlit in the evenings. Don't be fooled by the outside though, it is in the course of construction and has been for quite a few years - though that is not unusual for major religious buildings which commonly Thame a century or so to complete. You can however go inside, which... More

This temple is very nice, clean and I love the gold finishing. You can see this temple from most parts or the City.

The Temple is beautiful and breathtaking from the outside. It is massive and well worth the visit. The inside is not finished, and is largely empty. However it is still impressive and you can see that when it's finished it will be an architectural and cultural masterpiece. There are fountains out front that you can take your shoes off and...
