I had been quite a few years ago and asked for directions when I was nearby at Kalemegdan. The church is hidden away to the left of the restaurant at the eastern end of Kalemegdan.

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. Petka is a protector of women and I like to think that her guardianship extended on me as well. One can buy the holy water there (in the bottles) and there is a souvenir/candle... More

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.

...with a lot of local traditions and history attached. Hard to find within the Castle confines, but worth your while

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.
