The Cathedral Church of St. Michael the Archangel is a Serbian Orthodox Christian church in Belgrade, Serbia. The Cathedral was built from 1837 to 1840 by order of Prince Miloš Obrenović.

The interior is richly decorated. The gold-plated carved iconostasis was made by the sculptor Dimitrije Petrović, while the icons on the iconostasis, thrones, choirs and pulpits, as well as those on the walls and arches were painted by Dimitrije Avramović, one of the most distinguished Serbian painters of the 19th century.

The Cathedral Church with its architecture, artwork and rich treasury is an impressive cultural monument.
