Oplenac, Topola

4.8
#2 of 21 in Historic Sites in Central Serbia
Visit the exceptionally lavish resting place of 28 members of the Royal House of Karađorđević at Oplenac. The church and mausoleum were designed in 1910, but couldn't be finalized until 1930, due to the Balkan Wars and Austro-Hungarian lootings; eventually, the officials replaced the stolen and destroyed objects with even more opulent gilded ones. As you approach, observe the luminous white marble structure, and step inside to see the exquisite interior, including decorations created out of 15,000 different shades of polished marble, glass, and gold. Take note of the 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) chandelier, which hangs upside-down to symbolize the fall of the Serbian Empire in the battle for Kosovo of 1389. There is a small entrance fee, which you pay at the ticket booth in front of the church. Plan to visit Oplenac during your Topola vacation using our convenient Topola trip itinerary maker.

    Is situated in a Green Park. You have to climb a few hundred meters, until you find the white Church, Orthodox, identical format structure to many others. Only when we enter all changes. It was the most beautiful and attractive church saw in Serbia. Unutterable. All decorated with tens of millions of small pieces of painted glass. Ceilings. columns. walls, dome. Impressive. The visit to Serbia is not complete without visiting this church.

    Црква својим положајем на врху шумовитог брда и белим мермером плени изузетну пажњу још издалека. Унутрашњост је декорисана сликама у мозаику, а у крипти се могу изблиза видети и опипати ове уметничке бравуре.
