  The church
by Prasnjavi

The church was built in 1863. The order for its construction was issued by Knez Mihailo Obrenovic and Metropolitan Mihajlo, and the works were financed through donations of many Belgrade citizens.
The church was shaped in accordance with then prevailing romantism, following examples of the old Serbian monasteries, first of all the Ravanica monastery. The first icons were painted by Nikola Markovic in 1864, but later, this task was assigned to the most famous painter of that time, Steva Todorovic, who completed this enterprise in 1881. Also, the original wall paintings made by Nikola Markovic have been replaced with new compositions made by Andrey Bitsenko in 1937. The church is rich in collections of icons, old books, articles of gold and other things from the 19th century.
