St. Sava Temple - Review

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

  • Such a great and amazing chruch , but it's still on construction. It doesn't matter at all because the moment you enter the church you can feel the peace it offers. Also, for tourists around the world ; watch out the dress code. I think you have to cover your shoulders and it's okay to wear jeans but it has to cover your knees. It would be great for me to visit the church after it's finished.

  • Impressive church with massive dome, must go inside to look upwards to the ceiling of the dome. Renovation currently going on. Fine to enter church with shorts and t-shirt.

  • This temple is an orthodox Christian church of great proportions that can be seen from many different points of the city. It is very bright and beautiful on the outside but unfortunately it appears to be a never-ending story when it comes to its finishing. It is bare and undone inside with the exception of the subterranean crypt that is thoroughly depicted and decorated with images of Serbian national history and religious history. The outside plateau is deteriorated and too green for the purpose, should be paved enough to gather the fidels to pray in mass on important occasions. One entry to the temple looks like a construction site whilst roughly half of the paving slabs are broken and wiggling when you step on. It should be amazing when done but that is a big matter of time.

  • A must-see attraction in Belgrade. Temple of Sava is currently under renovation inside as of April 2018. But the underground section is immaculate.

  • Supposed to be a very beautiful Orthodox Christian Church, but it is not complete yet. Apparently has been a long time since it started but not finished yet. It is also located in a nice and pieceful environment.
