SERBIA ~Saint Nicholas Cathedral - Sremski Karlovci ~

...Pretty panoramic view....a lovely Baroque church on the main square... this very old Eastern Orthodox Church has played a significant role in Serbian history... definitely worth a visit... Thanks Raffi!!ヽ(ヅ)ノ

Sremski Karlovci is located in northern Serbia, on the gentle slopes of the Fruška gora mountain and the banks of the Danube river. This small town was the  Serbian religious center in 18th century.

The Orthodox Cathedral of St. Nicholas was started in 1758 and completed in 1762 and dedicated to St. Nicolas. This single-nave church is one of the most beautiful examples of the 18thC architecture in Vojvodina.

Its iconostasis is regarded as the masterpiece of the Serbian baroque painting. The coffin containing the holy relics of the second Serbian archbishop, St. Arsenije Sremac, is located in front of the iconostasis. The church got its present appearance after the reconstruction carried out in 1909 and 1910.
