This is a must see when in Banja Luka. This is a beautiful Orthodox Church right in the centre of the city and is easily accessible. The inside of the church is beautifully decorated with icons of Saints, Jesus and Mother Mary. There is a sense of calmness when inside where you are able to take a moment to pray and take in the beauty of this church.

This is a very nice cathedral right in the heart of the city center where everything takes place. It is adjacent to a well kept park also full of old buildings. If one is in the city center, one cannot miss it.

This is one of the beautiest example of building ortodox church in Europe. Outside is builded from vulcanic stone from Mesopotamia with gold plated towers, inside is classical with frescoes. Renovated few years ago.

Christ the Savior Cathedral Church is one of the most important orthodox churches in Bosnia&Herzegovina. It is located in a big square, in the center of Banja Luka, the main city of Republika Srpska (the Serbian region in the Bosnia&Herzegovina). The place is very beautiful, and the square is a very good site to sit down, relax and eat something while you see the big and very beautiful religious building. Pitifully, I cannot go inside, because it was closed, when I arrived in the city.
