Temple of Birth of St. John the Forerunner

Among the religious buildings in town it is important to mention Temple of Birth of St. John the Forerunner. It is the oldest parochial church in Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Zvornik and Tuzla. It was built on the foundations of the old temple in 1817. This religious object gained its importance because it is known that the church was Zvornik’s metropolitans headquarters from 1823 until 1852. The church’s bells are from 1927 and they were the present for Zvornik from King Aleksandar I Karađorđević. The temple is under protection of state together with its valuable movable icons, old books, charters with golden seal (orig. hrisovulje) and Serbian crafts society’s flag.
