Temple of Saint Sava

Yesterday I was with the girls (daughter and niece) visited the Temple of Saint Sava. It is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox church buildings and ranks among the largest church buildings in the world. The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the location where his remains were burned in 1595 by Ottoman Grand Vizier Sinan Pasha. As you can see on the collage I made from the pictures I photographed yesterday, weather has not served us, but we have spent great time

The temple is beautiful, but a lot of money has been invested.

@Nevena83 It's worth it, and I was convinced myself. It was done well and the expensive material was used ... not to mention how big a temple is. Did you have the opportunity to see him live when you might come to Belgrade?

@LowRiderX I do not know if it's worth it when there are so many hungry and sick children. Yes, I was in it a few years ago while it was still being renovated.

@Nevena83 Oh Nevena, please, there have always been and will always be sick and hungry, if everyone would think like that, we would live in ruins. Should we leave the demolished buildings from bombing in the city center? It is not a problem, the idea of building the Temple came to an end in the 19th century, it began to be built in 1935 but was interrupted due to the Second World War. In 1958 after 88 applications and the same number of refusals finally in 1984, a license was granted to continue the work. It was again stopped during the breakup of old Yugoslavia, it was continued in 2000 again. And it's still not finished interior - that's the problem.

The shape reminds the Santa Sofia in Istanbul. This is a beautiful Temple.

@LadyDuck You are in right! According to the original solution, would have a different appearance. The suggestion was that these church would 'accept' three religions, Orthodox, Catholics and Muslims. Imagined construction as Gracanica. A lot of engineers and architects worked on the changes. A new solution, which was no longer under the influence of Gracanica, was already emerging, but the Church of Saint Sophia in Constantinople (Istanbul) was the new model.

@LowRiderX Also the Church of Saint Sophia hosted different religions during the centuries. Those are really big Temples and beautiful.

@DianneN A lot of money has been invested, it's really well done It is a magnificent building, which every tourist should see and it is very difficult to describe it by words, even with pictures, how impressively it looks and the positive energy itself is in and around him.

@LowRiderX I can imagine that it is even more impressive when you visit it in person. I never got the chance to see much of Serbia. I changed trains in Belgrade once, but I wasn't able to do visit any places. Hopefully I will get the chance to do that another time.

@Porcospino Oh, even that part of the city has been changed now, around the main train station here it is built 'Belgrade on the water' The railway station is moving away, there has been built and several buildings are already being built, and I think it will be the most expensive part of Belgrade
