The most recently built Orthodox church in Belgrade is at the same time the first church built on the territory of Novi Beograd, or New Belgrade, since World War II. Relying on Christian tradition and on the accomplishments of old Serbian builders, the architect Mihailo Mitrovic chose the shape of the ancient Christian rotunda, accompanied with lower annexes and a high bell-tower on the west side, as well as a three-leafed altar apse on the east. This temple represents, by its composition, a solid and artistically homogenous whole, achieved by a modern construction procedure.
