Ružica Church (Serbian Cyrillic: Црква Ружица, romanized: Crkva Ružica, lit. ''Little Rose Church'') is a Serbian Orthodox church located in the Belgrade Fortress, in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. Original church was built in the early 15th century, while the modern one was adapted in 1869 and fully reconstructed in 1925. It is dedicated to the Nativity of Mary. With its location within the fortress and water spring of Saint Petka, constant crowds of visitors especially on Saint Petka's feast day, and unorthodox appearance, it is considered one of the "best loved churches among the adherents".
The church is located in the eastern outer bailey of the fortress, between the Zindan Gate's northern arched tower wall on the south, and Jakšić Tower on the north, both towering above the church. It is situated along the downhill, partially stepped path, which connects the Upper Town of the fortress (section between the Zindan and Leopold's gates) and the Lower Town. Along the path, just to the southeast, is Belgrade Planetarium, while the path continues to the Nebojša Tower and the Sava bank.

If you're a history lover, you should definitely visit this place. Outstanding architecture, and interesting position within the Kalemegdan fortress.

All the Orthodox churches are beautiful This one looks like in a fairytale. Very small and quiet.

In my opinion this is the cutest church in the whole Serbia. The most interesting thing about this church is that inside of it there are two chandeliers made entirely of spent bullet casing, cannon parts and swords. You must visit this small church!

Crkva Ružica bila je barutni magacin do prelaska tvrđave u srpske ruke 1867. godine. Ikonostas u crkvi je delo Rafaila Momčilovića, a zidne kompozicije izradio je Andrej Bicenko. Dve skulpture na ulazu rad su arhitekte Nikolaja Krasnova.
