Taken in Belgrade, June 2008

One of the largest Orthodox churches currently in use. Is the largest in the Balkans. The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains are thought to have been burned in 1595 by the Ottoman Empire's Sinan Pasha.

The dome is 70m high, while the main gold plated cross is another 12 m high, witch is giving a total of 82 m to the Cathedral of Saint Sava. The peak is 134 m (439.6 ft) above the sea level (64 m [210 ft] above the Sava river). The church is 91 m (298.5 ft) long from east to west, and 81 m (265.7 ft) from north to south. The Cathedral can receive 10,000 faithful at any one time.The choir gallery seats 800 singers. It has a surface area of 3,500 square metres on the ground floor, with three galleries of 1,500 m2 on the first level, and a 120 m2 gallery on the second level.
