The Republic Square
3-4 hrs

Join us in exploring the Russian heritage in Belgrade.

We’ll talk about Imperial Russia’s and USSR’s help to Serbia and Yugoslavia during two World wars in front of a monument dedicated to Emperor Nicholas II and a plaque to Red Army soldiers. We’ll discuss architectural gems built by, or paid by, some of the so-called White Russian emigrants, people who emigrated from the territory of the Russian empire in the wake of the Russian Civil War 1917-1923 and the victory of the communist forces turning country into USSR. Architects like Nikolaj Krasnov, Grigorij Samojlov, and Valerij Staševski, just to name a few.

We’ll also explore religious connections, the majority of people in both countries are traditionally Orthodox Christians. We’ll see the Russian Orthodox Christian Church of Holy Trinity, from 1925. Important religious, cultural, and historical heritage site for the local Russian community. This Church is the last resting place for General Wrangel commander of white movement forces in the Russian Civil War 1917-1922.

We’ll also see the Temple of Saint Sava, the largest Serbian Orthodox Christian Church dedicated to Serb most important Saint, and find out how the Temple also has some connections with Russia.
