Church of the Holy Trinity - Basic Information
In the very center of Gornji Milanovac rises the church of the Holy Trinity, one of the main landmarks of the city. The church is located on hilly ground and in the middle of one of the main crossroads, so it is almost impossible not to notice it. In addition to being a symbol of Gornji Milanovac, it is also a symbol of our history. Namely, the church was the last endowment of Prince Milos Obrenovic, and its construction began in 1860.
History of the Church of the Holy Trinity
Although he ordered the beginning of the construction of the church, Milos Obrenovic did not live to see its final appearance. After Milos's death, his son and heir to the throne Mihailo took care of the completion of the church. The famous builder of that time, Nastas Djordjevic, was in charge of creating this building. The church has a simple and harmonious appearance, enriched with elements of Romanesque-Byzantine architectural style. The fact very important creators of that time worked on the construction of this church is also shown by the fact that the iconostasis that was in it was the work of Nikola Markovic, one of the most famous church painters in Serbia of that time.
The significance of the church
Unfortunately, during the bombing of Gornji Milanovac during the Second World War, a part of the church was destroyed, together with the archive and the mentioned iconostasis. The church was renovated after that, and some items from that time are still in the church library.
In addition, a part of the Takovo bush is kept there, under which agreements were made for raising the Second Serbian Uprising.
