Huge orthodox church. Located in a park, in a quiet, nice part of town, looks very imposing from the outside, but inside are still works in progress. Certainly worth seeing.

surprised when I went inside.... outside thhe church is marble, inside - conctret and some icons. but still local people was going in and keep praying... if yo forget about the material world and think about spiritual.... you will find out that there is no need of paintings, icons etc.... the St. Sava tempel is a good example of that

Is a huge Orthodox temple that is going through a deep reconstruction. But for now, nothing but cement, bricks and scaffolds.

the worlds largest orthodox church started 100 years ago. beautiful from outside but inside is just a huge concrete cavern some décor but a long way to go, I guess Serbia can thank anti religion Tito who supposedly used the structure as a garage. If you are short on time, just view the outside

The biggest orthodox catedral but even not as beautiful as a little local one. The construction isnt completed but it seems that it wont be a charming cathedral when it is finished.

It's been said that this is the second largest orthodox church on the Balkan peninsula. The thing is that, indeed, the church is HUGE but then there is nothing but a block of concrete from the outside. From the inside it's also not so different - only concrete and nothing more. It's even not completely finished. Don't waste your time... More

on the outset, I must admit I am not a conaisseur of Orthodox churches but the Sveti Sava is beautiful on the outside. The inside is not finished and Will not be for a considerable amount of time. Still, worth visiting just to get an impression of the sheer scale of what Will someday be spectacular.

This was understood by me as the second largest orthodox church with a well-prserved outlook. A simple, small but very photogenic building to visit if you hapopen to be around. if you like it, don't forget to walk across the open space and buy a replica of it in a fist size at a good price in the shop which...

This cathedral is special in the silence of the winter, with the snow outdoor and the candles indoor. You can stay for a good while contemplating all the pictures, the beautifuls icons. Enjoy this place because is unique.
