St Sava in Belgrade is a huge space made of concrete. It lacks the peaceful feeling of other holy places I’ve visited, but that could be down to the ongoing building works.
A mason is electrically chiselling a white marble capital for one of the columns, creating an arabesque pattern of foliage and the face of a low-ranking angel. Lions, elephants and eagles are carved along the arches.
It seems like an amazing thing to do to carve out a place of worship like this – or to carve out a country, which has happened here repeatedly.
