So you've probably figured out it's big. It is. The exterior is massive, very impressive. The interior is unfinished and still under construction. It's kinda interesting to see the active work taking place. It isn't very old so it doesn't have a sense of history or neat historical stuff like tombs. It's sheer size is what makes it interesting.

What proportins!!! You'll be stunned. At the moment it is being restored but, still, it is worth visiting it. It is surrounded by beautiful green spaces suitable for hungry walkers. Very pretty area indeed.

It is the biggest ortodox church in the world - they say and it is really huge and beautiful from the outside. In the evening it is very nice to sit in front of it as there is a park with benches. You can buy popcorn and sweets by street vendors too. A supermarket is some 2 minutes away. And... More

This area is located a bit out of the center but at night it is safe and lit nicely for photos. Come here after dinner and appreciate this area with other locals strolling around. The church is easy to find and off the Sava Square by maybe 700 meters. I did not enter the church but instead took in the... More

Huge church (orthodox christian) probably the biggest in Balkans but still under construction. You can visit easy from the centre of the city.

Quite a bit of a walk from Republik Square, you can find St. Sava Temple. The large white temple is extremely picturesque both during the day and at night. If you head around the temple, you will find a spot where there is a small garden walkway to a cafe, I think that this is probably the best angle for... More

Like visiting someone's unfinished basement. The cathedral is impressive....from the outside. Inside it is just a giant unfinished building. It was very, very odd.

It's not decorated from inside but still worth a visit. From outside it's absolutely awesome and huge which is also evident once you are inside. It's not very far from city center, maybe 10-15 minutes of walk.

It's magnificent, you just stand there and stare in this big, beautiful building. When it is going to be finished, it is going to be great.
