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.

Big disappointment! Beautiful from the outside, but not so beautiful on the inside. I visited St. Sava's in the spring and the interior was cluttered with scaffolding, white canvas coverings, and dozens of workmen. Only things I could hear were the dragging of ladders and the thunder of hammers! When I visited it again in the fall and winter, exactly... More

Serbia persons are very religious and never accepted Ottoman Emipre religion for 500 years under Ottoman pressure throughout history. Here you can how strong their Belief is and how ther are sincere in their Belief about Orthodox.

This is a massive, beautiful cathedral from the outside. The interior is going through a major renovation, so everything was covered or being rebuilt with new concrete. I'd love to return and see the full experience when the renovation is complete.

This cathedral is stunning inside and out! It has a feeling like no other as soon as you walk in. Completely overwhelming. So quiet and beautiful. Wear a coat, its freezing inside!

It is a huge temple and quite beautiful from the outside. I think it is a must see. On the inside it is still empty, unpaint and very very cold! I couldn't stand it for over 5 minutes. There is an accessible side door with a very well designed ramp, but at the moment it was locked and from the... More

When someone tells you that you will visit biggest orthodox cathedral in old (eastern, though) european city like Belgrade, automatically you are expecting something like Hagia Sophia, st. Basil's, Notre Dame, st. Paul's (and yes I know difference between orthodox, catholic, protestant churches, and between gothic, byzantine, romanic...architecture). St.Sava church is LARGE, some would say it is beautiful , but... More

The church is very large. Located in the neighborhood Vracar. Close to downtown. Inside the church still build up again. There are many icons and no frescoes.
