I went in, admired the wall mosaic, had a glass of mineral water and talked to a friend while the rays of a beautiful sunset lit everything around us with golden light. Tranquil, serene, beautiful.

This little chapel is on the edge of the Kalemegdan, kinda on the zoo side. It was quite an experience, I hadn't seen anything quite like this before. The exterior is unassuming but the interior is great. It has the typical biblical scenes all over the walls and ceiling but it's all done in mosaic! Awesome. On the inside volunteers... More

The chapel of Saint Petka is a special place because it contains a spring of fresh water that is believed to be curing all ailments. Many people claim that St Petka's water and prayer have taken away serious diseases form them. One does not need to be a believer to feel the energy of the place. This chapel is one... More

It is small charming chapel on the Belgrad Fortress area with special atmosphere adequate to such place: silence, aroma of incense; around there is kind of garden with plenty of nice flowers and view on the river: must to visit

This is a very small Orthodox church next to the Kalemegdan Fortress. From outside it looks like nothing special, but inside you can feel the power of the place. You can buy some water from the church and touch to the pope. It's powerful, I recommend to visit this place.

This tiny chapel is located in the precincts of Kalemegdan fortress. The main image of St Petka is one of the most beautiful, soulful icons I've ever seen. A face you will not forget in your darkest hours ... this is the face of deep compassion, understanding and healing. The pictures below her too show faces luminous to almost hallucinogenic... More

It is a very cute little chapel. Its interior is far more breathtaking than the exterior. Many people come there so they can buy "sanctified water", it is believed that it can cure some deseases. I have not tried it but the people were buying it.
