"St. Mark's Church" Belgrade Favorite Tip by johnsakura
Belgrade Favorites: 224 reviews and 246 photos
Favorite thing: St. Mark's Church at Tašmajdan was built in the 1931-1940 period at the place where the old church from 1835 used to be. It was designed by architects Petar and Branko Krstiæ, in Serbian-Byzantine style. By general architectural conception, forms and polychromy of facades, this temple is most like the Graèanica monastery. The equipping and decoration of the temple is still unfinished. At the south part is a sarcophagus with the remains of Czar Dušan, brought here from his endowment, the monastery of St. Michael the Archangel near Prizren. On the north side is the white marble crypt containing the remains of Patriarch German Ðoriæ. One of the most valuable collections of Serbian XVIII and XIX-century icons is kept in this church.
Fondest memory: View from Beogradska tower.
