“Beautiful cultural piece in the centre of Beograd”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

an amazing piece of cultural architecture that truly represents Serbian culture and the adopted byzantian architectural style of traditional Serbia. A must see for anyone visiting the country. The temple provides good options for a guided tour and the surrounding gardens are a nice relaxing spot to take a break in.

“Belgrade's Symbol”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

They are building it for almost a century. The building proccess was always interupted by historic events, first the World War II, afterwards the Comunist party and the socialist regime, but the Serbians are not giving up. It's magnificent from the outside. Unfortunately, the interior is still not finnished, so right now is just a huge empty space. Visit it when the night comes, the lighting is impressive.

“Must see place in Belgrade”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Monumental church in Belgrade, wonderful view around and nice park around. Visited many grandiose places around the world, but this church has warm and human soul.

It's really impressive and monumental! Exterior is really something to be amazed with. However, it wasn't possible to see the interior right now..

“A symbol of the city”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

You can see this temple from afar and it is a symbol of the city: it's shining, magnificent, high, impressive... but it tells also a really interesting tale about Belgrade's History and about serbian people. Its construction became in 1935 and... it's still unfinished: the second world war and the socialist regime holded back the dream of a temple big enough to be the roof of all orthodox serbians.
Despite the incredible outside, the inside is all concrete (there is even a crane in the middle!) and an immense volume of emptiness. A little place inside is dedicated to the church, but it is very small.
Really interesting, anyway.
I suggest to take a look at the old St. Sava church (the smaller church on the side of the temple): the inside is beautiful.
