St. George's Church @ Smederevo
Serbia

Church of Sts. George, in the center of Smederevo, the work of architect Andreja Damjanov from the 1854th , is one of the first church building from the middle of the last century in Serbia, which marks a milestone in Serbian architecture on the way to a new, national style. Monumental in its size and architectural design, this church was built with the desire to resemble the medieval church of the monastery of Manasseh, who served as a model builder. Together with later raised representative building of the Municipal Court and the House today frames the main square of Smederevo.


The church has three naves, the basis of a cross, a polygonal apse, diaconicon and proskomediju, choir, followed by five slender dome and the massive Baroque bell tower to the west. Spatially divided into a part of the altar, nave and a small narthex, above which the gallery. Vault holds six strong pillars of greenish gray-coated artificial marble with Byzantine capitals connected by arches. The church was designed in the style of Serbian-Byzantine spirit, although the present Appeal plastic baroque decoration, reflecting the time in which it was built.

The paintings and icons of the iconostasis created in 1935. by Andreja Vasiljevic Bicenko from Kiev, with a lot of sense for color harmony and a refined sense of matter. Ikosnostas, choir, the pulpit, the Archbishop's throne, the frame for the icon of St.. George and two nalonja, carved of white marble venčačkog in the Byzantine style of the artist Eugene firm hand Lavcevic from Belgrade.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
