The Temple of Christ’s Resurrection in Podgorica with its monumentality, architecture and artistic value is a sacred building. The construction of the temple began in 1993 and lasted a full 20 years.
The temple is dominated by two towers of 26.7 meters in height, with 17 bells inside them. The largest is 11 tons and it is the largest bell in the Balkans. One of the essential characteristics of the temple is certainly its artistic decoration. It is one of the largest and most interesting stone galleries of sacred objects, and the background of the frescoes is gold-plated.
The Temple of Christ’s Resurrection, through its beauty and monumentalism, is becoming better known throughout Europe and the world, and is a place of pilgrimage for Orthodox believers, as well as tourists from foreign countries who see the temple as one of the cultural monuments that must not be missed during their visit to Podgorica.
Since I’m a Christian Orthodox, and Orthodox Christmas is on 7th January, I gather with my family in front of the Temple when it’s Christmas Eve (6th January) to celebrate. The interior looks stunning with detailed fresco paintings, and it is definitely worth a visit!
