St. Sava Church

You will see the monumental structure of St. Sava Church from whatever side you approach the center of Belgrade. It was erected on Vračar hill and it is one of the largest orthodox churches in the world. It was built where, according to legend, the remains of St. Sava, the most significant Serbian saint, the first archbishop and founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church from the 13th century, were burned during the Turkish rule.

The monument to Karađorđe dominates in front of the Church, as does the building of the National Library of Serbia, with the most extensive book collection in the Balkans. The magnificent fountain in front of the Church provides the space with a special charm and it is the favorite meeting place of the citizens and visitors of Belgrade.
