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.

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

Walking on the Danube side of the fortress you should visit the chapel if you pass by. It has a kind of cosy feel to it and cool acoustic for the priest to utilize.
