Somehow the entire location is like a fairy tile, the chapel as well as church Ruzica above it. Witnessed several weddings and baptisms- magical!

A lovely monastery to visit while in the fortress. There are great mosaics to view. Just remember, this is a working monastery and you need to respect at all times. Dress appropriately.

My friends got married there last week. So beautiful and peaceful church. And the park, in the middle of the city is perfect. Take a walk around and you will enjoy it.

This small church located is hidden in the hart of Belgrade fortress of Kalemegdan. Dedicated to St.Petka, women and children protector, is my favorite church, where my husband and children were baptized. There is a story, that water from the church well is miraculous and can cure many illness.

f you want to get away from city crowd and see unusual place of Serbian history and religion. After a nice walk through the beautiful city park, you come through medieval fortress you arrive at a place of unusual tranquility where you can sit down and rest before you continue your journey.

Nice little church right on the backside of the fortress, nice area with benches to relax out in front of it, worth a stop if you're nearby

One of the best jewels of Kalemegdan! Place where many believer and nonbelievers find peace. Must see to understand!

The location of St. Petra's Chapel is one of a kind, on the top of the hill, overlooking the river, carefully secluded away from the noise and the bustling city, deep in the Kalemegdan Fortress. The chapel itself make you feel secure and holy, and one cannot be void of this feeling. A safe heaven, this is what it is.

Within the famous fortress is hidden a marvelous gem of Belegrad. Small chapel, beautifully decorated with mossaic. Water is supposed to be healing. But it is worth visiting thanks to its perfectly preserved balkan feeling. Be sure to visit it, during normal hours, otherwise it is closed shut.
