We were wondering around the fortress and almost missed this little church. The exterior is rather simple, and one may think it's not worthy entering. I'm happy that we did though as it's one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen! The mosaics covering the walls and the ceiling are fascinatingly beautiful. The church itself is very small, so... More

Even if you're not religious the art and the architecture is something to appreciate - the adorable Ruzitza (little rose) church is also nearby and not to mention the surroundings full of monuments...if you come here be ready to get sidetracked exploring the whole place.

Not many people know that this church is one of the oldest holly places in Belgrade! On that place was one holly place for the Kelts who built the Belgrade fortress. Assume is that that was because of the water that heals. Now it is one of the most beautiful churches in Belgrade, and definitely on the most beautiful place.

It was difficult for me to find the place, it seems to be hidden from main road , at the edge of the belgrade fortress. Anyway fascinating chapel, as it was full of priest and people could not take photos. A chapel must be visited.

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.
