After Milos death, his son Mihailo took over the completion of the works, and the well-known architect of the time, Nastas Đorđević, was in charge of the appearance of the building.

The church is enriched with Romanesque-Byzantine elements, and in its original form there was an iconostasis by Nikola Markovic.

House of Serbian-Norwegian friendship

At the entrance to Gornji Milanovac, an unusual building reminiscent of a Viking ship and a traditional Serbian log cabin attracts the attention of passers-by. This building, known as the House of Serbian-Norwegian Friendship or the Norwegian House, symbolizes the mutual support between Serbia and Norway during World War II. About 4,000 Yugoslavs were taken to concentration camps in Norway, and half of the prisoners managed to escape with the help of the local population.

Built in 1987 according to the conceptual design of architect Aleksandar Djokic, the house combines elements of Norwegian and Serbian architecture. It was built from timber processed in Norway. Today it serves as a memorial museum, with an exhibition in the attic showing the personal belongings of Yugoslavs from the Nazi camps in Norway. On the ground floor there is a conference hall and a catering area open to guests.

The Norwegian House can be reached by walking in about 10 minutes from IG Hotel.

This place is known for the fact that the Second Serbian Uprising took place here under the leadership of Milos Obrenovic on the serbian holiday Cveti on April 23, 1815. Takovski grm (bush), the oak under which the plan for the Second Serbian Uprising was made, is one of the famous symbols of this historical era. Although the original oak was damaged by a lightning strike, parts are preserved in the museum of the Second Serbian Uprising in Takovo and the Church of the Holy Trinity in Gornji Milanovac. The second, younger oak, planted by Mihailo Obrenovic, serves as a new symbol of the uprising.
