Create an itinerary including Ružica
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. Make Ružica a centerpiece of your Belgrade vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Belgrade trip planner.

  • Very interesting small Orthodox church, which is located within the Belgrade Fortress. The first church was built in the 15th century, and the existing building was reconstructed in 1925.
