My best friend's grandfather built this church. She has nearly 10 relatives buried here. Her parents will follow. It is a small beautifully painted church. The burial grounds are unique and peaceful. Not wheelchair accessible.

This church is a historical site. It is lovely when you view from the street. Graveyard in front with many, many beautiful head stones and monuments. Photographs well.

I live close by, and several times a year, they fire off some very loud guns, or small canons, late in the evening. It always surprises me, but doesn't bother us. I say party on!

It all started in 1995 when Belgrade iconographer was asked to paint frescoes and icons inside the church. Thirteen years later, 2008, he completed his job. Today, you don't need to go to Byzantine Europe to see this important religious and historical artwork.
