Beautiful mosaic scenes throughout the chapel and one of Mary outside. It is a surprise going down the upper level steps to see this chapel emerge into view.

It's just next to Ruzica church - go down the staircase - wonderful mosaics and a sacred spring from which they bottle water that can be purchased. Very restful spot to take a moment. I have read the comments about the clothing - if you are dressed modestly you will have no problems- they were very welcoming.

This church is inside the Fortress which is a must see. It is so beautiful from the inside full of mosaic drawings. It is a miraculous church where you will find blessed water being given to the people. They say St. Petka helps women get pregnant. Next to the church you can find a small store that sells candles and... More

One of my favorite places in Belgrade. Tucked away on the slopes of the Belgrade fortress. Saint Petka is patron of women and many believe that visiting this church Saint Petka will answer their prayers. The church interior hides beautiful frescoes. Worth a visit.

When you leave the Belgrade Fortress through the Zindan Gate and make your way down to the Danube, you will come across two small chapels. Both are shown on the map of the fortress that you will find inside the inner fortress when you enter through the Clock Tower Gate. They, also, are clearly marked on the map provided by... More

It was a nice church and all fresco were protected by the government. It's really calm place. Definitely worth to visit.

You better dress up before entering. Especially toe slippers seem to anger the priest. He pointed at them, snapped his fingers and his look became rather aggressive. I rushed to get out. Ruzica chapel is just up from Petka. It is covered with ivy and inside are frescos. A bit more dark and mysterious. Both chapels are difficult to find... More

For those seeking a bit of peace in itself, for those seeking a little rest after walking, Kalemegdan, if you want to get to know the spirit of the Serb people

Beautiful place to visit, especially in the morning when it is quiet and the sun hits it perfectly. You'll enjoy it.
