Built between 1931 and 1936 over the site of an older church, St Mark's is a larger model of the Garčanica Monastery in Kosovo. Inside the rather bare interior - the interior is still incomplete - are the remains of Serbian Emperor Du?an who died in 1355. They were moved here from Kosovo. King Alexander Obrenović and his consort Draga are both buried here as well as Prince Milan and Serije Obrenović. St Mark's was damaged in the bombing attack on the nearby Serbian TV building which was destroyed completely. In the eastern shadows lies the little Russian Orthodox Holy Trinity Church.
