The Serbian Orthodox Cathedral Church of Christ the Saviour consists of two parts. The history of the older one dates back to the time of King Stefan Dusan in the 14th century. The much larger part with the belfry was built in 1836, but remained unfinished.

The Church was heavily damaged during the unrest in March 2004 and must have been guarded and totally fenced off until just recently.

When we visited Prizren in May 2011 it was not a problem to enter the church grounds, although the interior was not accessible.

Directions: The Cathedral Church of Christ the Saviour is located at the street Rruga Kalaja, which is the street leading from the city centre to Prizren's fortress. It can be found just below the fortress.
