It is one of the biggest church buildings in the world and Belgrade's most important landmark. Religious or not, you should definitely pay a visit. You'll be in awe.

This temple takes your breath away as you aproach it by it's sheer size as well as the feeling of holyness it emanates. Though it hasn't been yet finished inside, that doesn't hurt since this represents one of the largest christian churches and you get a certain Aya Sofia feel in it.

From the outside this Serbian Orthodox church is impressive enough with its massive white marble walls and its green copper-topped domes on top of which are brilliant gold crosses. Enter inside and be wowed by the enormity of the space. Unfortunately the decoration and fitting of the temple is incomplete and most of the interior walls are just bare concrete... More

Dragged my spouse there (a 20-min uphill walk). The exterior is impressive but once entering inside, a huge disappointment. The walls are paintless, bearing nothing: no decorations, icons, paintings. The space is a huge repair area with few people lighting candles (the only light source there).

This was the last stop on the 20th Century Walking Tour and I am glad we visited. Quite impressive from the outside. And located in a nice park area. The inside is under construction and not much to see at this point. When all of the frescos are painted and the interior is complete this will be a WOW.

Impressive orthodox monument by its size, beauty, architecture style and much more. It has big spiritual value for Serbian people. Its construction lasted more than 35 years and it's not finished yet. There is lot of things to do on wall paintings inside this temple. Every year for Christmas evening Serbian Patriarch serves liturgy in this temple and lot of... More

Although the Temple is not finished yet, I truly felt special vibe. The guide told us a very sad story about how they are trying to finish the temple for a very long period, but somehow new obstacles always occur. Also, we have learned a lot about Serbian history and religion.

This was not like visiting other Cathedrals it was very unique due to the fact that it is still underconstruction and has been in this process for years. Due to this you will not find a fully completed church but you will find a structure with immense history and a very touching past. This is one of the most sacred... More
