Church
“The largest Orthodox Church in the Balkan region, and the second largest in the world, St Sava is an ever-present monument in Serbia’s capital. High on the Vračar plateau, you can see the church’s white granite and marble walls from any approach to Belgrade, while the 50 bells that sound noon ring out across the city. The temple is built on the site where the Ottoman Grand Vizier Sinan Pasha burned St Sava’s relics after his icon had graced flags during a Serbian uprising in 1594. Construction began in 1935, 340 years after that event, and ended in 1989. The biggest challenge was raising the central dome, all 4,000 tons of which was assembled on the ground and hoisted into place. ”

“The Cloth Hall may be the centerpiece of the Main Market Square, but St. Mary’s Basilica is the the highlight of a visit here. It’s this view of the church that you see so often on travel guides and blog posts, and there is more to do here than to just take a few photos.”

“Matthias Church is one of the finest churches in Budapest, and the most unique churches in Europe. Located atop the Buda Castle hill, it has been serving the citizens of the Buda Castle Hill since 1015, its foundation by the first Hungarian king. Bored with churches? Not this time. Full of surprises, mysteries and treasures, the church has a breathtaking interior with colours inspired by orientalism and romantic historicism. Its mystically exotic atmosphere paired with its Neo-Gothic features differentiates it from any other church.”

Church
“This cavernous Neo-Byzantine church is one of the largest in Serbia, and although its outer structure was completed during the 1930s interior works are ongoing. The sublime iconostasis for instance was only completed in the 1990s: The frame is marble, while the icons inside and the painting of the last supper were composed by Đuro Radulović, an academic painter from Belgrade. Work on the crypt began in 2007 under the narthex, and tombs of 19th-century clergy and Serbian royalty were transferred here. These had been in the old St Mark’s, founded directly after Serbian independence and wrecked during the German bombing of Belgrade in 1941. ”

“Towering over the city skyline, Biserica Neagră is the main Gothic monument in the country and considered the largest church between Vienna and Istanbul. It was built by the German community of the city of Brașov between 1385 and 1477. With a length of 89 meters, a width of 38 meters and featuring a 65- meter-tall bell tower, the church got its name from the charred appearance of its walls, which were blackened during the Great Fire of 1689.

“Every time I visit the center of Bucharest I can't help myself walking into this beautiful and serene East-Orthodox nunnery. I don't exactly know its history but I can feel it. Its a tiny church with an amazing nunnery attached to it. I have been fortunate enough to pass by on Sundays and hear the nuns during their mass. I recommend this to you becase of the feeling it gives me each and every time I step insides it's gates. There is a lady preventing people from taking photos inside the church; please respect her. For the selfie-lovers out there the gardens are free for photography and yield much better shots anyways. The gates however, are closed a lot of the time too. Make sure to pass by again if you find your access denied.”

Cemetery
“Legendary Lychakiv Cemetery. It is one of the oldest necropolises in Europe. People even call it an open-air museum. The cemetery covers a huge area — more than 40 hectares where there are more than 300 thousand tombstones. Most of them look like real masterpieces, but also these tombstones are important components of cultural and historical heritage. Since 1991, the necropolis has been officially recognized as a historical reserve. I recommend you visit Lychakiv cemetery with a guide who can show you the most interesting graves and will tell you stories about people buried there.”
