About St. Sava Temple, Belgrade
This church of white marble and granite, vast and grand, defies description. It’s new (construction started in the 20th century), and still incomplete, though you won’t be able to tell that at a casual glance. The architecture is Serbian-Byzantine. It was thought that in 1595, the Sinan-Pasha burned the relics of Saint Sava here, but this has since been proven inaccurate.
The church can hold 10000 people at a time. Its polyphonic bells sound every hour. On the inside though, it’s not so impressive. You’re better off clicking pictures from the outside. Once it IS finished on the inside though, it’ll join the ranks of the greatest churches in the world.

St. Sava Temple, Belgrade Reviews
This temple is one of the biggest structures in the city and great artistic achievement. It is steel under construction which is not surprising taking in consideration circumstances that occurred during building process. This is definitely place to visit in order to understand Serbian culture and their view of religion.
The temple is big and massive but it is still not finished. The garbage is all around the place and the works are going very slow. Inside is very grey and undone. In front of it there is a nice park so it is nice to sit there and enjoy the view. Whet it is finished it should be very nice but who knows when is that going to be.
Definitely one of the most spectacular and magnificent temples I have ever seen. The church is being redecorated and rebuilt now, so we just are able to imagine intricately made mosaics inside. Anyway, the temple definitely one of the most culturally significant buildings in Belgrade. It is simply impossible to look at it and maintain equilibrium.
5stars if it was ready inside.They are still building things inside.Very big church and nice architecture worth watching.Saved us from an unexpected heavy rain
Beautiful but under construction. The outside is absolutely gorgeous, but on the inside, there's a huge box asking for donations to FINISH THE CONSTRUCTION hahahaha
