Chapel of Saint Petka, Belgrade by tosicbojan

Chapel of Saint Petka (Facade)

The church is located in the Upper Town of Belgrade Fortress, very close to the Rose Church. It was built on top of a spring that is believed to be miraculous, on the site of an old chapel built after 1867. The current chapel was built in 1937 to the design of architect Momir Korunović.

It was completed on St Petka’s Day (also known as Paraskeva) and the spring waters are believed to be beneficial to women. Its interior walls and arches are covered with mosaics, created between 1980 and 1983 by artist Đuro Radulović.

When the foundations were being dug, numerous bones were found belonging to Serbian soldiers who had perished in the defence of Belgrade 1914-1915, which were transferred to a specially-built ossuary in the walls beneath Jakšić’s Tower.

Ružica Church( Црква Ружица) by tosicbojan

Ružica Church (Serbian: Црква Ружица, Little Rose Church) is a Serbian Orthodox church located in the Kalemegdan Fortress, in Belgrade, Serbia. A church of the same name existed on the site in the time of Stefan Lazarević. It was demolished in 1521 by the invading Ottoman Turks. The church was used as a gunpowder magazine in the 18th century, and was converted into a military church between 1867 and 1869. Heavily damaged during the First World War, the church was renovated in 1925. The iconostasis was carved by Kosta Todorović, and the icons painted by Rafailo Momčilović. The walls were covered in paintings by Andrej Bicenko, a Russian artist.
