Uspenska church (Serbian: Uspenska crkva, Hram Uspenja Bogorodice, Temple of the Assumption of the Holy Virgin) was built in 1746, in Bečkerek, today Zrenjanin. It is located in Svetosavska street.

History

It is the oldest church in Zrenjanin. Thanks to the fact that it was covered with roof tiles, it survived great fire in 1807.

The church is built in Baroque style, and it is very similar to the Orthodox Cathedral in Sremski Karlovci. Iconostasis was done by Dimitrije Popović, and continued in 1815 by Georgije Popović. The wall paintings were done between 1928 and 1930 by academic painter Aleksandar Sekulić, who was born in Veliki Bečkerek.

The Uspenska church testifies to the Bečkerek Serbs' full acceptance of the modern European artistic streams around the middle of the 18th century.

Today

The church was last time renovated in 2000. Flood lights were installed in 2005, so it is possible to see all its beauty during night hours. Uspenska church is protected by law as a cultural and historical monument of interest.

Trivia

In the church yard, there are two marble crosses, which were removed from Zrenjanin's two squares during the 1950s.
