Artist's Description

The Belgrade Serbian Orthodox Cathedral (Belgradi Szekesegyhaz) in Szentendre (about 20 km from Budapest) sits on Church Hill (Templomdomb) along with the St John Catholic Church. We visited in December, not a busy time in Szentendre. On the day of our visit, a woman in the adjacent museum had to unlock the door for us to visit inside. She arrived with a gigantic old fashioned key, turning it laboriously to open the door. It was quite dark save for the light of the chandelier. But the long exposure of the photo revealed the beautifully decorated interior. The church here came about because of all the Greek, Serbian, Dalmatian and Bosnian fugitives who came here to start new lives after the fall of Belgrade in 1521. By 1690, a significant number had settled in Szentendre, and so the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Buda was founded in the village.
