We briefly visited this church in our walks around Banja Luka. It is a gorgeous church that is surprisingly small but immense with icons and beauty. One should take some time looking at the various items.

Beautiful outside and inside. The chandelier is amazing and so pretty! I felt weird taking pictures, but no one stopped me, so I guess it's allowed? Peaceful inside, nice to sit and take in the beautiful gold.

Located on the site of the old church which was destroyed during WWII by Croats' Ustasa movement, this building is very important symbol of rebuilding and overcoming adversities. Beautiful church with gorgeous architecture and style. A must-see.
