This Serbian Orthodox church is the largest Orthodox church in the world and appears to be still unfinished in the interior. Although the outside is quite beautiful. Next to it is an older church worth popping into.

The most photographed icon of Belgrade, St Sava Church, is centrally located and visible from every corner of Belgrade. The façade of the church, the windows and bells were finished in 2009 but inside it's still a “work in progress” which still doesn’t stop you admiring its sheer size. The guide mentioned that the basement of the Church is almost the same size as the church above ground itself if not bigger. This place, St Sava Church, has a very important place in Serbian culture and its history. The Church is dedicated to the first Archbishop of the Serbian Church, who was born as Rastko Nemanjic, the son of the first ruler of Serbia. In his youth he decided to become a monk and was re-christened with the monastic name Sava. He later established the monasteries of Hilandar on Mount Athos and Žiča. He died in Bulgaria only for his body to be moved to Mileseva Monastery.
where it stayed until 1594 when the Ottoman Turks removed the remains and burned them on the Vracar hills in Belgrade - St Sava Church is built on the very same spot. St Sava Temple is the largest working Orthodox temple in the world.

Absolutely awe inspiring and the large Orthodox church in the world. The massive stories high open Cathedral feels as if you are in an otherworldly place, and indeed you are. Facing East we all look towards home and I hope it becomes a glorious pilgrimage for all of us that seek The Light.

It is the largest Orthodox church in the Balkans, and one among the 10 largest churches in the world. The church was built on the spot where the relics of Saint Sava were burned in the 16th century. Its beauty and the place where it is built make it one of the most important places to visit in Belgrade.

One of the largest orthodox churches in the world, impresses even if it is not fully integrated, especially in terms of interior decoration. It is worth admiring it enlightened in the evening, and at any time of the day, if you see its interior, the only certainty is that you will feel awe.

Also called Temple of San Sava, it is one of the most impressive buildings in Belgrade. It is one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world, it began to be built in 1935 and the work has not yet been completed. It is built in marble and granite and the 70 meter dome is very beautiful. Recommended to visit at night when it is all lit.

Si tratta della più grande chiesa ortodossa al mondo. E' una costruzione recente, infatti venne eretta nel 2000. E' posta al di sopra del promontorio del Vracar.

Самый большой православный храм Сербии. Внутри пока пустой, (надеюсь, скоро это исправят) но все равно величественный.
