The Serbs love them some Saint Sava! As I’ve written in a previous post, St Sava is one of the most important figures in Serbian history (Serbian Prince, Orthodox Monk, enlightened teacher & author, etc).
And the Church of Saint Sava is one of the most treasured structures in the city. She is a beaut! Especially with all that white marble, and immaculate detailing.
Also, Saint Sava Temple is one of the biggest church buildings in the world. It ranks up there.
Interestingly, the interior of the church is still under construction. There is scaffolding set up, and while some of the windows look really nice, it is very much unfinished.
It's bizarre because the outside is so stunning! There aren't really any seats or anything. But, there are still a couple areas set up for worship and prayer.
I can only imagine what the inside will look when it is finished, especially if they put as much love and care as they did with the outside. Supposedly a lot of the interior decor will feature mosaics. (thumbs up emoji)
Here are some photos of the temple as the sun is setting.
Saint Sava Temple is a most impressive sight! I really enjoyed the peacefulness and tranquility of the church grounds. Even as there were kids scootering around and street vendors pedaling ice cream and souvenirs.
2 and a half words for Serbia, "Get-er done!" I wanna see your inside shine like the outside. See you soon, Saint Sava Temple!
