Built in 1920's, before becoming the Parliament of Serbia, it was the Parliament of Yugoslavia. It was the place of democratic uprising in October 2000, when some of it parts were burnt in flames. It's old shine has since been restored.
National Assembly of Serbia locatetes in city center, no far from Knez Mihajlova street.
It is next-door sightseeing spot. During the night you can admire its luminosity and reflection in the sky.
“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. ”
“Churches in the Balkans don’t come much more monolithic than this. That is a descriptor and a fact, as the Church of St Sava is the largest in the region and one of the biggest Orthodox cathedrals on the planet. Built on the spot where the eponymous saint’s remains were supposedly burned to dust in 1594, work on the church began in the late 19th century and continues to this day. That work was understandably interrupted by World War II, before Tito and the socialists decided it would make a good place for a car park. It wasn’t until 1985 that work on what many assumed was an old castle continued. The interior is still under construction, but that adds a certain humanity to this most impressive of spiritual buildings.”
“Despite not being very large, these gardens are well worth a visit. Entrance fee is 250 dinars. There are 3 recommended routes, ranging from 45 minutes to 90 minutes. The pathways are well marked and it would be difficult to get lost as the entrance and exit are through the same gate. The greenhouse is large, housing exotic tropical plants and trees. Unfortunately, due to a huge heatwave, a number of the flowers were past their best. However, the roses were spectacular and fragrant. For me , the highlight was the Japanese garden. Absolutely beautiful with lots of flowing water; wooden bridges and gorgeous little trees and superb planting. The lovely trees provide plenty of shade and all are well labelled with their names. There's a good rest area with tables and benches and a small café providing refreshments. The toilets are extremely well maintained. There are plenty of benches along each route of the walk. The gardens are definitely worth a visit.”
“Famous walking street, spreading from Square of Republic to Kalemegdan Park.”
“This museum on Nikola Pašić Square stages only temporary exhibitions on themes dealing with Serbia’s past. One recent exhibitions for instance was dedicated to the 13-century prince and monk St Sava, who essentially founded the Serbian Orthodox church. Another show recounted Serbian life during the First World War, while others have handled topics as diverse as the First Serbian Uprising at the start of the 19th century, Serbian sculpture, iconography and the trailblazing Serbian-American physicist Mijajlo Pupin. ”
