Hram sv SaveThe Church of Saint Sava (Serbian: Hram svetog Save) (top photo) is a Serbian Orthodox church located on the Vračar plateau, Belgrade, Serbia. It is the largest Orthodox church in the world[1] and ranks amongst the ten 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. From its location, it dominates Belgrade’s cityscape, and is perhaps the most monumental building in the city. The building of the church structure is being financed exclusively by donations. The parish home is nearby, as will be the planned patriarchal building.

Terazijska cesmaThe fountain (top photo) was erected as a utilitarian and decorative object at Terazije in 1860, as ordered by Prince Miloš Obrenović, to mark his return to the Serbian throne. In 1911, after a reconstruction of Terazije, it was taken to the Topčider Park and returned to Terazije in 1975. The plastic decoration of the fountain comprises stylized floral elements, arcades in relief and carved lion heads; stylistically it relates to the 1860s Belgrade architecture. The fountain has a polygonal basin of a 10 m radius, 1.5 meters high. A square, 8 meters high column is in the centre with lion heads – taps for the water and a decorative urn on the top. The fountain is the work of Franc Loran.
