  • The Sava Temple is spectacular. I almost bypassed it, but I’m happy I did not, Do not let the construction work outside convince you to pass it, Make sure you stop inside and witness this spectacular....  more

  • Second greatest Orthodox temple will amaze you, teach you and give you peace of freedom in every way. For the believers it is a way to show the God's glory, for others it is an architectural marvel with the details that can be looked upon for, at least few days. Everyone is welcome and that is the most important thing 🇷🇸💓
  • Mind-boggling mosaic on the dome. We had had a great guide. She gave us excellent description of the place, the history behind its construction. Enjoyed visiting and learning about this second largest Orthodox Church in the world.
