The outside and the park are quite lovely. They're still doing a lot of work on the interior, though, so it's really bare. If you're close by, come check it out. Otherwise, don't make a special trip.

It is a big church and I don't see the point. From my point of view, it worth to visit this church only if you have visited the entire city and you still have time to waste. One big plus for Orthodox Church from Serbia, do not oblige you to pay for the candles as does the Orthodox Church from... More

I love architecture and visiting Churches especially. On our recent trip to Belgrade we set aside time to visit this church as it is so famous. It was a let down and a waste of time. It is completely unfinished on the inside, its just a concrete shell...

The St. Sava Temple is an impressive church on the outside with the national library as close neighbour. As the inside is yet to be finished there's not much more to see in the area other than a few market stalls selling the usual knick-knacks.

This temple is the biggest sacred object in Serbia and it is easily seen from almost every part of central Belgrade. It also has the beautiful park on the outside. However, interior of Temple is not finished yet.

Beautiful outside but a vast empty space inside which was quite surprising. Work continues inside. Some beggars at the entrance who were persistent.

The outside is still glorious but the inside is being substantially repaired. Worthwhile visiting in the evening to see the lights illuminating the dome.
