This church's namesake is that of a Serbian Saint. She is known as the saint of weavers, probably due to her generosity in clothing the poor. It's walls are covered with beautiful mosaics. When we were there, there was some kind of ceremony going on so we didn't get to spend too much time inside. There is also a separate building where one can light candles and pray.

Saint Petka's Chapel is a little church located just outside the Kalemegdan Fortress, close to Zindan Gate, in Belgrade, the main city in Serbia. It is really tiny and beautiful and if you enter, it has all walls painted. Very beautiful. I recommend you visit it, because it seems a poor church without interest, but it is not true.

I truly loved how it was designed, and it is definitely a little hidden gem. The small courtyard is very quaint and peaceful. The inside was ok, but nothing amazing. I would definitely make sure you visit this place, but would not put it at the #1 spot of things to do in Belgrade.

This is a beautiful little church, a hidden gem outside the fortress.
St. Petke's Church is located in the Lower Town of Belgrade Fortress and was erected on the site of a miraculous spring, near the ružica church, erected in 1867. Dedicated to the St. Petka, she is very respected in the Orthodox world.
Its interior walls and vaults cover the beautiful mosaics, which were 1980-83. was created by painter Đuro Radulović. The rich history of this church makes it extremely interesting. The energy in this church is extremely positive. Interestingly, Sveta Petka is primarily regarded as a protector of women, but also an assistant to the sick, the hungry and the poor.
Do not miss it when visiting the area.

It is a bit difficult to find and it is a steep climb up.
Take your time and look around carefully. It's a jewel, full of mosaics...
Don't follow the queue, it is for women only... but use your eyes. Also the exterior is very beautiful.
Go down and turn to the left to find a tram back to the city.

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 of the most sacred Orthodox places in Serbia, with very rich and long history.

It's very small church. Hidden below restaurant "Kalemegdanska terasa". It's loved place to visit for many orthodox Christians. Also wedding couples like to make photos here. If visiting Kalemegdanska, it's worth time to come here
