The Serbian ortodox church. Jan 24, 2018
This church was built on the site of a previous church that was used both by the Greek and the Serbian communities in the '700. It was opened in 1868.

It is surmounted by five light blue domes; one large and four smaller.

Inside the church you can see the iconostasis; that is a group of icons partly covered in gold and silver. This was built in Russia at the beginning of the ' 800. A silver chandelier that was a present by Paolo Petrovich; (future tsar Paul I) when he visited Trieste in 1772 is another highlight of this church. Many other beautiful work of art will surely catch your attention inside this church.

Blue and gold Oct 22, 2011
Occupying Trieste since the nineteenth century, this church belongs to those of the Serbian Orthodox denomination. The church is pretty prominent near the grand canal in Trieste and I have always wanted to step inside. The grand style of the façade, and beautiful art figures, made me want to take a look inside too. The interior is very beautiful and is rather nicely decorated. Though the church doesn’t seem to be in frequent attendance for services, it seems to be well visited by many. This is evident with the many candles that light up the church and give the place a rather nice glisten. The shades of blue and gold inside are very nice and I think this is my favourite church in Trieste.
