Church on Sunday: Saints Peter and Paul in Sirogojno, Serbia


Today’s featured church is one of the smallest I’ve seen yet: the Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Sirogojno, Southwestern Serbia. This Serbian Orthodox church was built in 1764 and is dedicated to the apostles St. Peter and St. Paul. English information on the church is slim, but it is either a reconstruction based on another church in the same location, or was moved from a different, original location to Sirogojno.  

The church is next to an open-air museum that showcases Serbian architecture and life in the 19th Century, but I’ll write about that later. We’ve just completed a marathon return back to Belgrade, and it’s time for RHOB to dream about her next Serbian adventure.
