The Church of St. George (Croatian: Crkva svetog Đorđa, Serbian Cyrillic: Црква светог Ђорђа) in Bobota is Serbian Orthodox church in eastern Croatia. The church is famous for its icons in the iconostasis that were painted in 1778.[1] During the Croatian War of Independence, administration of Eparchy of Osječko polje and Baranja sent the icons on the restoration[2] and preservation in Vojvodina.[1] The icons were returned to the church after the end of war.[3]
