Sombor - Crkva svetog Đorđa 1759-1761

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

THE CHURCH OF ST GEORGE ,(Crkva svetog velikomucenika Georgija) was built in 1759-61 thanks to the donations of orthodox Serbs of Sombor. The tower was erected in 1791. Way back in Turkish times, there was a smaller church with the same name on this site.

The original iconostasis was done by the best iconostasis painter of that time, Teodor Kracun. In 1866 it was removed and replaced by Pavle Simic’s one.

The church was renovated in 1936.

Bonita foto da Igreja de São Jorge, em Sombor, Sérvia. Gostei do ângulo de tomada, projetando-a ao encontro das nuvens carregadas prenunciando chuva. Like 53. Saudações desde Brasília, Brasil, Rubens Craveiro
