Orthodox Cathedral of Karlovac

Orthodox Cathedral of Karlovac

Karlovac, HR

The Orthodox Cathedral of Karlovac was completed in 1803 and is dedicated to St. Nicholas. As the Serbian presence developed in Karlovac in the 18th century, the community needed a place of worship. Its construction began soon after the community received permission to build their church in 1785. During the Second World War, the cathedral was severely damaged, but not demolished. All religious objects were removed from the temple, and the building was turned into a warehouse for looted Serbian property. After decades of abandonment and looting, the church was renovated in 2001.

Convento di San Lucchese

Poggibonsi, IT

The apsidal part of the chapels was built around the middle of the 14th century, the portico in front of the basilica in the 17th century, and then transformations and restructuring for the restoration, especially of the facade and the roof (due to landslides, earthquakes and the 1943 cannonading), brought the complex back to its original state.
