By the decision of the Holy Synod of Bishops, the Serbian Orthodox Church has begun work to adjust the backing surface on which mosaics are to be placed, in Belgrade's St. Sava Cathedral.

The year 2019 is especially important for our people and for the Saint Sava Cathedral, as the 800th anniversary of the autocephaly of the Serbian Church will be celebrated then. According to the Project task of the Holy Synod of Bishops for artistic equipping of the mosaic compositions in the Saint Sava Cathedral, the goal is to complete the first phase of mosaics for internal decoration of the Cathedral, which consists of:

  • first unit – first phase, the cupola and the sub-cupola gallery
  • second unit – first phase, the sanctuary space

The first and second units of mosaic work in Saint Sava Cathedral will be, with the help of the Russian Federation and the Russian people, completed by 2019 under the custody of the Russian Federal Agency for affairs of the Commonwealth of Independent States (approved by the Russian Government), Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation.
