Trinity Church - Cathedral
Nis Cathedral Temple holds a significant place in the history of Serbian art not only with its architecture, but also with its iconostasis. The building of the Church commenced on 18th October 1856 and lasted until 1872. It was sanctified after the liberation from the Turks in 1878. The walls of the temple were built in different styles, from Serbian-Byzantine, Islamic, Renaissance to the elements of west baroque. With its beauty and peculiarity, it certainly occupies an important position in the development of modern Serbian architecture and represents a kind of turning point in its history.
The grand iconostasis of the church of high artistic value dating from the year 1885, which was mostly painted by the great Serbian painter Djordje Krstic, was unfortunately destroyed in the great fire in 2001. Owing to the donations and hard work of Nis citizens, the temple was archaeologically renewed and restored.
What is particularly valued in this church are the parts of the relics of St. Artemije the Martyr, the first duke of the Emperor Constantine the Great, which have been preserved with due care in this temple for centuries.
