The church of St. George

    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.

      I ja upravo pronađoh ovu tvoju sliku u NG Traveleru.
      Čestitke i tebi! :-))
      Nemam gotovo nikakvog iskustva sa štampanjem fotografija, ali mi se čini da izgube nešto od sjaja, blistavosti i kolorita kada se stave na papir... Možda grešim...

      Sacral art and architecture are the only things I really like and appreciate in religion.
