Saint Petka's Chapel, Belgrade

4.9
View the Mediterranean-style facade and intimate interior filled with vivid Orthodox mosaics at Saint Petka's Chapel, built at the site of an ancient spring with curative water. In addition, a hand of Saint Petka, who is remembered for her good deeds, lies on the church's premises. Dating back to 1937, this church was built not only on the curative spring, but also at a mass gravesite of Serbian soldiers from World War I; the bones were discovered by accident during construction and transferred to an ossuary. View the mosaics inside, created in the 1980s. Look for the spring that thousands of people worship and use, believing that it holds miraculous powers.

  • Beautifull chapel just outside Belgrade fortress. Outstanding mosaic. Its small but one of the nicest i have seen in Belgrade. Just remember about proper clothes. Covered shoulders and knees  more »
  • The Chapel is located in the castle of Belgrade and is worth a visit. Go on a Saturday if possible, then they can safely observe wedding parties and enjoy the beautiful Gregorian chants.

  • The Church overlooking the Danube River. The position is restored, seems quite badly destroyed in the first world war, but war between staff. Nice mosaics decorated on one side (which seems aware of the 6th century). To not disturb the local people come to worship, so let's see.

  • Great place. The Church is not big, but very comfortable. Is at the bottom of the Belgrade fortress.
