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
4 stars as a temple, only because is not finished yet (second picture) but definitely a 5 pointer in the future. When you enter, go left, and then follow the hallway and go down. Beautiful finished sector (also in the pics), details are well done. Really worth it. From the outside is already outstanding, also with nice surrounding gardens.
This is the largest church in Serbia and one of the largest churches in the World. The crypt of the temple has been completed and works on the mosaic are underway, which should take another 2 years. At the end of this process, the environment should be regulated. In the next two years, the temple should receive a new decorative lighting.
Beautiful. Just beautiful. I love the people in Serbia even if my parents were born there :). I love visiting, I feel so comfortable and safe. Other people should come visit. It's a trip of a lifetime
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.
The Church of Saint Sava is a Serbian Orthodox church located on the Vračar plateau in Belgrade. It is one of the largest Orthodox churches in the world and ranks among the largest church buildings in the world. It was raised on the spot where it is thought that in 1595 Sinan-Pasha burned the relics of Saint Sava, founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
