The Orthodox Cathedral is a rather stark Neoclassical edifice built in 1840 featuring a fine Baroque tower. It is the resting place for several members of the mighty Obrenović dynasty, as well as Serbia’s greatest literary hero, Vuk Karadzić. Opposite, at Kralja Petra 5, stands the Museum of the Serbian Orthodox Church, where a small collection of bejewelled Bibles and other gorgeously decorated paraphernalia is housed in the HQ of the Patriarchate.
