Trench Art Church

The intrepid explorers of Curious Expeditions went to the Kalemegdan Fortress in Belgrade, Serbia. There, they saw what has to be one of the strangest churches in the world: the Ružica Church, a small chapel decorated with trench art, like a chandelier made from spent bullet casings.

A gasp jumps from the lips of a surprised onlooker as their eyes fall on something that seems entirely out of place in this holy environment. One looks closer to examine it to make sure they are not mistaken. They are not. Lighting the frescoed walls of Ružica Church, a small chapel built into the side of Kalemegdan fortress, are two chandeliers made entirely of spent bullet casing, swords, and cannon parts. It is a more fitting decoration than one might realize.
