The church of St. George - Oplenac, Serbia

    Newer Older

    The church of St. George and the mausoleum of the Karađorđević dynasty was built at the top of Mali Oplenac (Little Oplenac). King Petar I decided to build a church and a mausoleum for both his ancestors and descendants to fulfil a wish of his parents buried in Vienna.
    The church is covered with white marble from nearby Venčac mine. Interior is covered in mosaics, with more than 6 million pieces.
