The deputy mayor of Belgrade, Goran Vesic, has announced that the park in front of the Church of Saint Sava will be fully reconstructed this year.
– This autumn, 85 years since the beginning of the construction, the Church of Saint Sava will be completed. This job entails the development of the park in front of the church. The authors of this unique solution are academy members Branislav Mitrovic and Dejan Miljkovic. The new park will have much more greenery, almost a hundred new trees, a fountain and new granite blocks. The development of this park will be financed by the Republic of Serbia and the City of Belgrade, and the Serbian Orthodox Church is involved in the process – Vesic said.
He pointed out that the new solution especially highlighted the monument to Karadjordje and that the facility which can be seen in the design, and which partially covers the area where the Parish Home is now and then along Kataniceva Street, was the future location of the building of the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church.
– All the previous urban plans of Belgrade envisaged this building, and the project will be prepared by academy member Mitrovic and architect Miljkovic. In a way, with the completion of the church and the construction of the Holy Synod building, the idea of the famous architect Aleksandar Deroko about making Vracar one of the central places of Orthodox faith will be realized – Vesic said.
