The St. Sava Orthodox Cathedral or Temple is impressive by its sheer size, to say the least, but when one enters the cavernous interior, the scale of this incomplete religious nexus is other-worldly, enhanced by the promise of future grandeur in the samples of the mosaic wall-coverings hinted at. Devoid of floors, decorations, ikons, lighting and heating, this vast space... More

They're still building the church. It's absolutely beautiful and it's great to see the progress they're making. The library is next door which you can use the toilets and I think there's a cafe. A statue of Nicolas tesla is out the front!

Huge temple partially completed on the inside apart from the subterranean crypt which is finished and looking absolutely divine. Lots of frescos and gold plating. Very artistic and well worth a visit even if you are not religious.

It's a huge and interesting new church still under construction. I was impressed by the cosy atmosphere even the building is very big. It will be great to see this church when is completed.

From the outside,this church is highly impressive. It is a rebuild of the Church that was destroyed earlier. Work is still underway inside, and there is little to see.

The main hall seems to be undergoing renovation, and is too dark. But the treasury in the basement is beautiful. Don's miss it!

This is one spectacular building, rich heritage and beautiful scenery for photos. It's the largest one in Belgrade and a must see if you are here, highly recommended. Just next to the temple is an Orthodox Church.

unfortunately at the moment the ground leve is under maintenance, so most of the walls are covered, but the crypts is really to be visited, all shining and perfectly restored

The temple as locals call it was built in 1986. The interior work still goes on. the impressive dome weighs 4000 tonnes and was lifted over 40 days and installed atop the walls of the building. It houses the Saint Sava- patron saint and protector of Serbs. Magnificent. One of the largest church edifices in the world and in orthodox... More

This is quite a new church, having been constructed in the late 20th Century, however when you walk in you are transported back to what seems like a much earlier time in a wilder and more distant land. The space is massive and at the time we visited contained very little. The floor is rough conrete. The experience is awe... More
