Crkva svetog Marka u Beogradu
Građena je 1931-1940. na mestu stare crkve iz 1835, prema planovima arh. Petra i Branka Krstića, u srpsko vizantijskom stilu.
Po graditeljskom rešenju ovaj hram podseća na arhitekturu manastira Gračanica.
U južnom delu naosa nalazi se sarkofag sa kostima srpskog cara Dušana, koje su prenesene iz njegove zadužbine manastira Svetih arhangela kod Prizrena.
U crkvi se čuva jedna od najbogatijih zbirki srpskih ikona iz perioda XVIII-XIX veka.

ps
Danas mi je krsna slava po pravoslavnom kalendaru sveti Nikola.
U nedostatku crkve pod tim imenom postavio sam crkvu svetog Marka u Beogradu.
Sveti nikola je bio veliki svetac i mnogi ga ljudi u Srbiji slavi,gotovo pola pravoslavne populacije.
Danas pola Srbije slavi a ona druga polovina ide u goste.
Poštovanje dragi prijatelji

Today is patron of the St. Nicholas Orthodox calendar.
In the absence of the church of that name, I set the Church of St. Mark.
St. Nicholas was a great saint and many of the people in Serbia celebrated, almost half of the Orthodox population.
Today, half of Serbia celebrates and the other half goes to the guests.
Respect my friends
Saša
