cathedral Saint Sava, Belgrade: 37 reviews and 92 photos
As the name say it all... Vracar field means field of Druids. In the middle ages and even in ancient times this fild was just outside city walls. The present church is being built at the place where in 1594 Sinnan Pasha had the holy relics of St. Sava burned at the stake, after he had them brought over from the Mileševa Monastery. Preparations for the construction of one of the largest orthodox churches in the world started way back in 1894. After two public competitions, the design authored by architects Bogdan NestoroviŠ and Aleksandar Deroko was approved in 1926. Construction works were interrupted with the bombing of Belgrade at the beginning of World War II. They were continued after a very long pause, in 1985.
Today, temple is completelly finished outside but interior still have to be finish.
Address: Vracar Plateau
