I found this a place of thoughtful reflection. Some inside were praying but we tourists were welcome to walk and stand and watch. I was most impressed in that dark, candle-lit interior with many icons to admire and think about.

Gorgeous Orthodox Church. With great frescos, painting and art. It’s small but it feels roomy. Located in a small square with nice shopping and restaurants!

A relatively new church in the old town. Completed in 1909 and still very much alive as a meeting point of the Serb Orthodox community. As other reviewers have mentioned striking are the huge paintings of four evangelists Luke, Matthew, Mark and John directly visible...More

The first thing I noticed upon entering was the huge portraits lining the walls. They are really impressive to look at and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it in a church before. There’s a lot to look at in here and...More
