Visit one of the largest Orthodox buildings and churches in the world,St. Sava Temple (Hram Svetog Save), a prominent landmark from numerous points in the city. Symbolically, it sits at the sight where Ottoman forces incinerated the remains of St. Sava--the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church. Its 8,162 sq m (87,855 sq ft) interior spaces, with two floors and several galleries, can host around 10,000 worshippers. 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. See this 82 m (269 ft) tall structure, featuring white marble walls and 19 gilded crosses, and visit the surrounding park with decorative fountains.

St. Sava Temple (Hram Svetog Save) Reviews
It is a unique building, so huge, lots of gold in interior and white stone. Really beautiful.If you are in Beograd it is definitely worth visiting more »
Unlike many massive churches in Europe, this one is far from finished. Go anyway. The crypt is amazing, and if the rest of the church turns out as well, it will be beautiful. more »
Was just outside as there were some renovations, but it's more than enough. Really magnificent building. Probably one of the largest I've ever seen. Was surprised it was finished (outside) only 30 years ago. Well worth the visit.
I visited this big temple in February and March, 2019. The temple was under construction. But I could see the big room under the ground. The room was big and gorgeous. The route for the big room was a little bit complicated. There was no signboard. When I visited, not so many tourists. It is worth to visited here, I think. I recommend you visiting here. Oh, one guy talked me friendly and tried to sell postcards. Be careful. Not inside the temple. The guy was around the temple outside the park.
