Cathedral Church, Belgrade

#7 of 30 in Historic Sites in Belgrade
Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Architectural Building
Cathedral Church represents an important step in the westernization of Serbian architecture and serves as one of the country's most significant places of worship. Completed in 1840, it showcases Classicist and late Baroque elements, designed by some of the greatest architects, sculptors, and painters of the time. Snap photos of the monumental facade and enter the church to view its lavish interior spaces. You'll see a gilded ornamented iconostasis, granite columns and decorated arches, and 19th-century frescoes. The church also holds remains of numerous Serbian rulers, church heads, and persons of high cultural importance. When visiting, wear modest clothing--with knees and shoulders covered.
