About the tour

The largest church in Serbia and the Balkans and one of the largest in the world, the Cathedral of St. Sava takes the visitors' breath away with its monumentality. Its interior is adorned with the largest mosaics in the world, with a total area of 15,000 square meters! The church was built in such a way as to surpass the Byzantine architectural ideal of Hagia Sophia with its size, harmony, and beauty. Lifting a 4,000-tonne dome with hydraulics to a height of 65 meters in 1989 was an unprecedented marvel of modern construction. During the 45-minute tour, we will get acquainted with the life and significance of Saint Sava - the founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church, we will hear an emotional and traumatic story that started a centuries-old desire of Serbian people to build this temple whose construction is now almost completed after more than 85 years. And of course, we will go inside to see for ourselves the amazing interior that entices many with the question: is St. Sava the most beautiful church in the world?
