Under construction, but a magnificent edifice

This will soon be the largest Eastern Orthodox church in Serbia (& likely all of E. Europe). It is already beautiful, but will be even more so as they finish the building... read more

This church is a landmark of Belgrade and must be seen if you are there. It is still incomplete aftre many years of the construction. I am not fun of the marble the constructors used, but I believe in few decades of time, the marble will get its nice colour. There is one small church next to it and I... More

A huge church but, actually there's almost no interior. The views at night must be amazing, though...

I visited this church as part of one of two free walking tours I did. It is only called a temple because of its size. It is a Serbian Orthodox Church. Since it is not complete, it is not an active congregation. Apparently it is only used at Easter and Christmas. It is estimated that it may be completed by... More

This will soon be the largest Eastern Orthodox church in Serbia (& likely all of E. Europe). It is already beautiful, but will be even more so as they finish the building & frescoes over the next few years. Well worth a visit.

St. Sava Temple is the biggest orthodox church in this part of world. No matter fact that it’s in my home town, every visit of this place is holiday for my soul. There is no need to talk about it anymore... just visit it :)

Impressive. The biggest Orthodox temple in Balkans. St Sava has a special place in Serbian history and in Serbian Orthodox church. Nice fountains around the temple. During Orthodox Christmas many believers visit, liturgy is held, followed by a magnificent fireworks.

The outside is pretty massive (let's be honest, it's massive as hell), but it's pretty much an empty shell. Given the construction is far from being over, there's not a lot to see inside, apart from fake icons. Definitely not a priority to see in the city!

This is a must see in Belgrade--you can hardly miss it anyways! Giant orthodox temple (one of, if not the biggest in the world) that you can walk through. They do have stations set up for those going to pray, but you can also go through as a tourist. Beautiful building inside and out; it has been under construction for... More

Beautiful temple located in downtown Belgrade which is definitely worth a visit. Easy to walk to from the centre or most busses and trams will go past it. Not yet finished on the inside but allows you to get a sense of the scale of the building. Beautiful fountains on the outside and nicely lit up at night time. Definitely... More
