Don't be misled by its austere exterior; inside this white-marble, five-domed church, eye-smartingly vibrant mosaics have been magnificently rendered with over 40 million pieces of coloured glass. Millions more adorn the mausoleum of Karađorđe (leader of the First Serbian Uprising against the Turks and founder of the royal dynasty) under the church.
