Ružica, Belgrade
(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Featured in numerous articles, including in the Atlas Obscura, Ružica features a facade covered in greenery and chandeliers made of weapons. Pressed up against the walls of the Belgrade fortress, the church has a history dating back to the 14th century, after which it was destroyed and rebuilt several times; the present construction is from 1925. During the 1700s, soldiers kept their gunpowder inside, and in the 19th century it served as a military church. Enter the cave-like chamber to see vivid frescoes and the famous chandeliers wrought from cannon ammunition, officers' swords, and pistols. Take time to view the medieval-style yards adorning the fort's base. Using our online itinerary creator, Belgrade attractions like Ružica can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • As well as the Church of St. Paraskeva (Petka), Ružica Church is under the Kalemegdan fortress in Belgrade wall. Very beautiful place with a model Knight and soldier in front of the entrance.

  • This is the most beautiful I've ever seen, and can be one of the most mysterious Church. You will be enchanted by the mosaics that. Although the Museum can also see that the worship of the people inside. The other thing is, a few separate parts as it stands seems to me that this church is located on the borders of Belgrade, one of the most beautiful churches.
