St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral (Serbian: Црква светог Саве; Crkva svetog Save) is a large Serbian Orthodox Cathedral located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Completed in 1956, the cathedral is covered in traditional wall mosaics that have been described as, "some of the most extensive and elaborate church mosaics in the United States." The cathedral sits on a complex that also includes a parochial school and an event center known as the American Serb Hall, an important stop for political candidates including a number of men who have gone on to become President of the United States.

  • Just a beautiful church that I look forward to when we visit relatives in the Milwaukee area.
  • I was at the folk festival in the cultural center. There were four 45 minute dance performances from other countries and a lot of Serbian groups. We really enjoyed the 45 minutes of open folk dancing for everyone after each performance with a live band. Serbian food was for sale at reasonable prices. There was also a bar in an adjoining room.
