Photographer's Note

The Church of Saint Lucas is the endowment of Despot Đurađ Branković. It was built in mid XV century representing the oldest orthodox place of worship north of the Rivers of Sava and Danube. In 1521, the Turks had razed Kupinovo to the grounds and probably the Church of Saint Lucas. According to sources from XVIII century the church had been rebuilt by the Captain Mihailo Vasić and the village residents, sometime between 1726 and 1730. The church and the baroque iconostasis of Jakov Orfelin from 1780 are protected by law today.
