Here’s today’s travel place, the Temple of Saint Sava in Belgrade, Serbia.  I see a trip to Eastern Europe in my future.   Enjoy

The Church of Saint Sava (SerbianХрам светог Саве/Hram svetog Save literal translation into English: “The Temple of Saint Sava”) is a Serbian Orthodox church located on the Vračar plateau in BelgradeSerbia. It is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox church buildings and ranks among the largest church buildings in the world.

The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, the 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 were burned in 1595 by Ottoman Grand Vizier Sinan Pasha.
