Old Orthodox Church – Little heaven on Earth

In the middle of the everyday rush, near the tram station on Baščaršija, you can easily find a little heaven on Earth. Yeah, I know that I said that for some other spots, but this Old Orthodox Church is the one.

The moment you pass the gate, you will feel an unbelievable peaceful cloud starting to come over you, filling your body and soul. The beautiful grass, roses in different colors and other flowers will please your eyes the first moment you see it.

The church itself is very small and clean. You can buy some candles and enter inside to light them. For your soul’s sake and for others… People there are very nice and they will tell you interesting stories and legends about the place. There is a particular one about the baby they found there but I will let them tell you.. It doesn’t matter what your religion is, if you’re a good person you will feel what I’m talking about once you’re there.. 🙂
