Reviewed 19 April 2014

only looked from the outside, such a lovely setting. It was just outside our hotel, looking all medieval.

“Very old Ortodox church”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

looks awesome, has plenty to show and does not charge arms and legs for it. Worth every minute spent in there, while you spend a little more buying good wine in the shop inside.

“Beautiful icons, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Sarajevo's old Orthodox church features some of the finest medieval icons in the Balkans and is a rare example of early medieval church architecture in the region. A sign on the door lists the entrance fee as 2KM but I found no one inside to collect it, although there are boxes to leave voluntary contributions. One the day I visited, Gregorian-style chant was piped into the building, greatly enhancing the atmosphere.

“Beautiful and Unique”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I honestly believe this is really unique and special Serbian Christian Orthodox Church!
As someone who is also Serbian Orthodox and have been in a lot of monasteries in countries where Orthodox live (Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro, Greece...) and in Jerusalem and honestly think this one in Sarajevo, by "age", location, atmosphere and beauty is really wonderful place!
It is not typical Serbian Orthodox architecture but still it is interesting and somehow I felt as I travel trough the time!
There are also hostel Konak, winery and a small garden for some relax from surrounding noise and traffic :)
As such unique, and one of the oldest religious (if not the oldest) places, so called "Old Orthodox Church" is must see place for any visit to Sarajevo ;)
