Church
“You have to see this place to believe it!!! Rock carvings in the walls, high roof "ballroom" style design, and stained glass windows (switch the lights on at the left hand front wall to best view these) help to make the Serbian Church one of Coober Pedy's most awe inspiring structures. Also go the ramp to the top floor to view more statues carved into the rock walls - it's a masterpiece that mustn't be missed!!! Open 24/7 with a $5 donation requested to support its maintenance.”
