Now let's climb up Oplenac Hill to visit Oplenac Church, the mausoleum of the Royal House of Karađorđević, the resting place of 22 members of the dynasty. The church was built in 1910 and contains a crypt and beautiful wall mosaics.

This is the view down the road leading up to the church grounds:

Let's have a wee peak inside and down into the crypt (which was a wonderful relief from the 30C+ heat outside; it was so cool I didn't want to leave):

And finally, round the back of the church, we have some stunning scenery. Šumadija region - šuma means forest:
