But the priest at that time honestly crushed my fate. Lucky for me, I realized that I do not need that man to believe in GOD. Visited it years back....

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

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.
