Hello all, sorry to keep you waiting for so long but here is my Minecraft replica of the Temple of St. Sava in Belgrade, Serbia.
It was built in the 1.13 snapshot for many reasons, the main being the Prismarine stairs and slabs. Because of this I cannot currently make a render for this project.

St Sava himself was a Serbian martyr during the 13 years war over Balkan lands. He was killed in 1595, causing Serbians to put his symbols on their battle flags.
Construction of the church began rather recently, on May 10, 1935, 340 years after the burning of Saint Sava's remains. The project was designed by Aleksandar Deroko and Bogdan Nestorović, aided by civil engineer Vojislav Zađina. The work lasted until Second World War Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941. However, the church was completely renovated in 2009 because of its lacking interiors and old foundations. The building was only officially completed in Feburary 22, 6 days before the making of this post.

The plain and simple but beautiful architecture still holds strong as one of the most elegant Byzantine-Orthodox Churches in the world.
Thanks for reading! :)

Beautiful work!
I never knew there were such great neo-byzantine churches in Serbia.
