Vaznesenjska church

Vaznesenjska church ("Church of the Ascension") was built in 1862, during the reign of Prince Mihailo Obrenović. It is a five-domed church with detached bell tower.

It is situated in the center of the city, near today's 101 meters high skyscraper "Belgrade Palace", in the vecinity of Kneza Miloša street.

It was designed after Ravanica monastery (1377) in central Serbia (built in the style of Morava school, the ultimate period of the Serbian medieval art), but modernized in the spirit of 19th century Romantisicm.

One of its major assets is one of the church bells from 1830, that rang during the proclamation of the Hatisheriff, which granted Serbia a full autonomy from the Ottoman rule.
