Belgrade's Cathedral Church

Just to the left and a bit below the man walking in my March 28th photo and looking back in the other direction you can see the tower of Belgrade's cathedral church, done in classic style with late baroque elements. It was finished in 1840 and is dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel. The interior is richly decorated with a gold-plated carved iconostasis. The icons on thrones, choirs, and pulpits, as well as those on the walls and arches were painted by Dimitrije Avramović, one of the most distinguished Serbian painters of the XIX century. In the distance you can see the dome of Saint Sava's cathedral, which dominates the skyline from almost all over town.
