As you can see from the pic the church is in renovation and we couldnt see inside. And because of that it was closed. Anyway in the inside nothing unusual, I'm 100% positive.

Quite an interesting visit - 1 euro each to enter and obtain a cover up as legs and shoulders must be covered. In city centre.

Church looks great outside- i loved roof especially; inside looks like classical orthodox church- icons and saints murals on the walls. Int he basement were graves of the king Nikola I and queen Milena of Montenegro.
