“Hram Svetog Save, a highlight in Belgrade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

First little bit of history and facts about this monumental building."The Cathedral of Saint Sava or Temple of Saint Sava (Serbian: Храм светог Саве / Hram svetog Save) is a Serbian Orthodox church located in Vračar, Belgrade, Serbia. It is the largest Orthodox church in the world and ranks amongst the ten largest church buildings in the world".
Architectural type is Serbo-Byzantine and he facade is in white marble and granite the inner decorations consist of mosaics.
I always visit this beautiful temple, when in Belgrade. It is work in progress as building is mostly progressed by generous donations. It has very interesting history throughout planned construction, setbacks and successes. I am always in awe of this building, it is impressive and dominates Belgrade cityscape. I enjoyed my walks near the temple and it is beautiful during day , but at night it is simply divine. Make sure to go inside and see how beautiful this temple is and light candles for living and passed souls.
"The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where it is alleged that his remains were burned in 1595 by the Ottoman Empire's Sinan Pasha."
One of many must see locations in Belgrade.

“A great monument still in the making”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This religious structure is simply awe-inspiring. It is huge, pure white with copper domes, and the surrounding park is very nice. One of the most beautiful buildings in the city and a must see in my opinion.

The church is currently under renovation but still impressiv. The white building and the size give a glance on how it is when it is finished.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I have never been to an unfinished church and this is worth a visit if ony to appreciate the amount of work that goes into such a construction. The finished bits are beautiful, particularly the murals.
