Ružica, Belgrade
(4.8/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Very nice Orthodox Chapel and affrescatissima. Intimate atmosphere. It is allocated within the Kalemegdan fortress and did not escape the visit. Nearby is the Church of St Petka. Going up the stairs, leaving behind the rustic Church, we are located near the tavern Kalemegdania.

  • Ovo je velicanstvena, velika a tako malena. Smjestena na takvom mjestu i toliko je lijepa da sam kao uvjereni ateista osjetila nesto lijepo i veliko! Neobjasnjivo!!! 
  • 这是在城堡旁边的一个小教堂,仔细找它可以在远处看到它的尖顶。在城堡上眺望之后,进入旋梯下的教堂有一种交错的感觉。教堂很小,但是装饰丰富,偶尔牧师会出来走动。从教堂后面的桥上可以看到牧师的生活区域,很温馨的感觉。最美的是教堂上的爬墙虎很特别,秋天的时候红黄绿相间,不是国内的物种。
