This enormous Serbian Orthodox church remains unfinished after decades of sporadic construction. The exterior belies the fact that the interior remains largely bare. Nevertheless, it proves impressively imposing due to its size. Beside it is a smaller church that holds religious services until the larger church has been completed. Go for a short visit to take pictures

Beautiful on the outside.....large on the inside. On the outside there is no doubt that it is a place of worship. It would almost be hard to know what it is on the inside.....concrete floor, no altar, no pews.....IN FACT the church is not complete. And, according to our tour guide, they do not know when it will be complete.... More

Large cathedral undergoing renovations. A lot of icons to see, candles to light and choir songs to hear. Impressive as a smaller Aya Sofia in Istanbul

I'm not very much of a religious-objects-kind-of-a-guy, but this building is impressive if for nothing else, then for it's size. It's huge! But I propose that you set up a Saint Sava's Temple for a goal of a bit long (and nice) walk from the center of the city. You can take a hicking tour from Kalemegdan Fortress, along Knez... More

Beautiful church still under reconstruction but you can go in and look around anyway. Read up on St. Sava and what he means to the Serbian people to get even more out of it.

Under construction for 60+ years, it's a long way from done. The outside is stately, but the interior is a largely empty, grey cavern. Bring your imagination. Nearby WC is among cleanest free public restrooms I've seen in Europe.

This Orthodox building is a quiet and contemplative place where worshipers can go and buy a candle, light it and pray in front of an icon. When my partner and I visit it in April 2014, religious music was being played, which combined with the vast size of the building and the uncluttered interior, since the pews were not yet... More

A spectacular temple on Vracar. A must visit for all orthodox christians visiting Belgrade. The temple is even more beautiful in the evening and night when it's lit by the lights.
