Tucked in the quiet part of Kalemegdan Fortress, this church is one of the favorites with locals. Small, quaint, beautiful inside and out, with mosaics. Sv.

The simple exterior hides an absolutely gorgeous richly coloured chapel inside. Took a bit of walking around on the Kalemegdan site to find it - but was really worth the little visit.
