This is a Serbian Orthodox church with an impressive building, especially when lit in the nighttime. Falls a bit out of the center, it is better to approach it by car. Although have not entered, it is said that the interior is still under construction.

This is probably the most recognizable point of the Belgrade. This churc is the largest orthodox church in the world and it is dedicated to the Sain Sava, a founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains were burned in 1595. It... More

an Orthodox church under construction, the inner church is not completed yet. Is visible almost form every single part of the Balkan region of the city. I do not understand the reason of that investment, ( another ayasofya?). But is ok

This is by far most impressive building you can see in Belgrad. Therefore it is absolut must to visit. It is a massive marble dom and looks very nice from outside. Interiors are however nonexisting as of now because it is a work in progress. I would suggest to visit it during darkness because it is usually beautifly lit by... More

Such a beautiful SV Sava temple. My first time to Belgrade with my three young kids and they were amazed by the size and beauty of the Hram. The surrounds were lovely and the kids enjoyed a play in the gardens afterwards. I last visited the Temple 8 years ago with my husband and it's wonderful to see the work... More

I visited the... More

When I visited-2008-the building was under construction. Nonetheless the site is an incredible monument to the powerful influence and connection the Serbian world feels towards their church. It is a working cathedral, and I saw a lot of people praying. I felt a bit uncomfortable, but also it gave me a great sense of reality. It's huge! It also looks... More
