The basement holds the crypt of Saint Sava and the grave of the medieval Prince Lazar, responsible for creating the most powerful Serbian state in history.

  • This is a pretty spectacular church in Serbia although it's the only one I've seen. It looks more amazing in the inside though.

  • Mind-boggling mosaic on the dome. We had had a great guide. She gave us excellent description of the place, the history behind its construction. Enjoyed visiting and learning about this second largest Orthodox Church in the world.
  • Quite simply put it's one of the most beautiful interiors I've ever seen, anywhere in the world. It's absolutely incredible, words, pictures nor video can do this justice. A very special and indeed memorable building that wows you at every glance!
