This lovely little chapel is tucked away on a cliffside just below the main Fortress and slightly below the tiny ivy-covered Ruzika Church. The mosaics inside this little chapel are exquisite and well worth a visit. (No photos allowed inside the chapel itself.) There is a patio in front of the chapel with benches on which to sit and relax.... More

I admit to being very fond of Saint Petka so that anything to do with her is good. For the general tourist this is an attractive chapel with some interesting icons.

Charming place, which you can delight at any time of day or year. Sunrise, sunset, morning, evening, architectural lighting, atmosphere, smell - all this makes you want to go back and explore this place again in the new conditions.

It is beautiful little church with really nice surroundings. Great for sunrise and sunset time as it has great panoramic view of the confluence of Sava and Danube river and New Belgrade. In middle ages, this was the site of a church where the holy remains of St. Petka’s (Paraskevi) were placed until 1521. The Chapel, rebuilt on the site... More

This was my favorite place in the Fortress, but it is tricky to find. The Chapel is beautiful and quaint. You won't spend much time inside because it is small, but it is worth a visit.

I'm not sure exactly why it is rated so highly on TripAdvisor and think I must be missing the point. It's a church which is quite nice. Not sure I would recommend it unless you have some vested interest.

We visited this small church this summer expecting far more to see. We don't know what exactly, but wanted to see why it was first on TripAdvisor. Water fountain was fine, so it was nice, charming and that's it.
