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 101 meters high skyscraper "Belgrade Palace", in the vecinity of Kneza Miloša street and Gavrilo Princip Park.
It was designed after Ravanica monastery (1377) in central Serbia (built in the style of Moravian school, the ultimate period of the Serbian medieval art), but modernized in the spirit of 19th century Romantisicm.
One of the major assets of this church 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.
In the immediate vecinity is located so called London square, and down Kneza Miloša street you can see the magnificent old building of the Generalstaff, and reach Nemanjina street, with wonderful palace of the Serbian Government at the corner.
