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.

This church is a beautiful discovery: it's behind the walls in Kalemegdan, you can see it from the observatory tower. It's intimate, warm-lighted and always well frequented because of a miracolous water spring (inside the church!) and because of a chapel, in the walls near the church, dedicated to saint Petka. The whole place instills a special sense of devotion.... More

there is a legend about st. Petka and the spring. it says that every time a catastrofy will come on Belgrade, the spring dries. You can come freely and get your bottle filled with water which is considered to be blessed.
