Along with Borca, the settlement of Kotez is another urban area located on the left bank of the Danube in Belgrade. Its territory belongs to the municipality of Palilula. And the settlement in itself  might not stand out with anything special, if there was not for one edifice in it.

Across from the school in the Belgrade neighborhood of Kotez, in the immediate vicinity of the kindergarten, there is a church dedicated to the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. This is the very center of the settlement, in 4 Anke Matic Street.

What makes this shrine special is not only its building, but above all its yard, which is extremely well kept, but also the activities that are carried out in the parish home and in the church itself relatively often, for all interested residents of this settlement.

The church was built in 2009, at the time when the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church was Serbian Patriarch His Holiness Pavle of blessed repose, while the Kotez parish priest was Milos Micic. The same year, the most beloved Serbian patriarch passed away, and the believers wanted to, in the glory of God and in memory of Patriarch Pavle, do all they could to make this church a place of family gatherings and a structure that all residents of Kotez would be proud of.

The church is dedicated to the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and the temple's feast day is St. Peter's Day, which is celebrated every year on July 12. The fresco depicting the two apostles is located at the very entrance to the shrine.

Numerous workshops are organized in the parish home, especially for younger parishioners, as well as lectures. Apart from the adult choir, this church also has one made up of children, but also a Byzantine chanting choir.

The yard of the Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul is what delights all visitors, because it looks like a park into which a lot of love, care and effort has been invested.
