Thank you very   much Hug . 




My dear Avi Hug, sorry to reply so late Embarrassed

You are so right, this little church is a historical monument. It was mentioned to exist in 1521, so, it has a long history. The name of this beautiful church is Ruzica (small rose). It is located in the center of the city, inside the old Kalemegdan Fortress...those stone tower that you can see behind, is a part of a stone walls that were going all around the old city of Belgrade (for its protection)...Singidunum, so you are right, that little church witnessed a lots of history's events, and could tell a lot of storries...Love your way of describing that picture and those feelings it awakes in you. I love to go there, there is such a peace and serenity that I feel, whenever I visit that little church. Love Kalemegdan Park as well...it is such a beautiful place, and you can sit there on benches and watch two rivers, Dunav & Sava  that meet each other...Smile

Ruica church, Belgrade, Serbia.jpg

Ruzica Church (Serbian: , 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 Lazarevic. 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.


There is St. Petka's well there, where every 27th of October when it is St.Petka's Day, long lines of women are coming to fetch a water from there, because it is considered blessed. She, St.Petka,was protector of women.

Here is a story about St.Petka, also known as Saint Paraskeva of the Balkans:

The legend says that when she was a child, Paraskeva heard in a church the Lord's words: "Whoever wants to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." (Mark 8, 34). These words would determine her to give her rich clothes away to the poor and flee to Constantinople.[1] Her parents, who did not support her decision to follow an ascetic, religious life, looked for her in various cities. Paraskeva fled to Chalcedon, and afterwards lived at the church of the Most Holy Theotokos in Heraclea Pontica.[1] She lived an austere life, experiencing visions of the Virgin Mary. Her voyages took her to Jerusalem, wishing to spend the rest of her life there. After seeing Jerusalem, she settled in convent in the river Jordanian desert.


When she was 25, an angel appeared, telling her to return to homeland. She returned to Constantinople, and then when she was 25, lived in the village of Kallikrateia, in the church of the Holy Apostles. She died at the age of 27.

Good morning allHeart

Thank you so much Branka for this treat of your collages and also for sharing the history and legends of this exotic church, so enriching! I love reading stories of the past and felt very happy reading about Saint Paraskeva, thanks, once again!

Avi, loved your expressions regarding the Church, we often feel in life we have visited a place before, possibly Karmic connection!
