Cathedral of St. Michael’s is a very important cultural monument – representing the invaluable historical heritage of Belgrade in the first half of the 19th century, which was growing around the Cathedral. St. Michael’s Cathedral in Belgrade was even then an ecclesiastical and, at the same time both cultural and governing center.

The Cathedral was headquarters in the struggle of liberation of Turkish slavery and final independence of Turkish centralism.

Near Cathedral was an old Serbian cemetery where were buried prominent Serbs of that age. The cemetery was where Kosancicev venac, parts of Kralja Petra and Zadarska streets are today.  In time, the cemetery slowly grew, so a part of it was on the ground of the Cathedral’s churchyard.
