My favorite of the churches I visited in Belgrade. Although it is 20th century (and the mosaics even more recent than that), it evokes the beauty of old churches. We shared it with believers who, for a small contribution, took bottles of the special spring...More

For many Orthodox Serbian people this is one of the most important places. It's small and very atmospheric. The seting inside the Kalemegdan fortress is stunning.

Well worth a stop by. Open (and open-minded) to non-devout visitors even when a service is on. Has another church within 40m, worth doing both.

Not old, I understand, but an authentic Orthodox chapel; well worth a visit. A service was being conducted when I was there; a beautiful, small church.

A small hidden church at the bottom of the fortress, extremely beautiful with beautiful mosaics. Has a natural source of water, a peaceful spiritual place. If you visit The Belgrade fortress, do not miss to visit this church as well as the church above Ružica.
