SERBIA - National review, No 58


Prologue

Even if we wanted to, we could not miscalculate or be fooled. Yet another year has leaked out, and a part of us with it. Whether now it is one less or one more, it depends on our approach to life. Like that one with the glass being half full or half empty. Preparing the penultimate number for 2016, we reached beautiful landscapes and wonderful people, we hunted scenes and stories, arming ourselves with the meaning and goodness. We explored the mystery of loyalty and true friendship. The front page photo will tell you more about it: nun from Gradac and dog Bear, the guardian of the monastery. <

Visit
”UVAC” NATURE RESERVE, ABOVE LAKES, CANYONS AND MOUNTAINS
Long Flight of Royal Birds
Griffon vultures were on the edge of extinction, however, with the efforts of experts and good people, now there are more than three hundred here. When they rise, it is difficult to land them. Some even reached Estonia and the Holy Land. At the moment, the most endangered species is the golden eagle, and it must be saved. With knowledge, care, goodness, money. People who take care of the birds are a special type and have their dream about life and freedom. We visited them and noted their stories

Paths
IN THE VILLAGE OF RUDNO, ON RADOČELO MOUNTAIN, ENTANGLED IN THE MILKY WAY
With the Sky within Reach
The Nemanjićs have walked these mountain paths. Some of their most famous endowments are here, Sava’s Hermitages and Waters, traces of Nemanja’s prophetic stick. The sun rises from the gigantic Kopaonik in the morning and sets over Golija in the evening. Beauties, scattered on all sides, wait for us. Old postcards testify that these beauties have been known in Serbian tourism in the past, but the question is whether they are still known

Reminder
A SMALL GUIDE THROUGH THE BELGRADE FORTRESS, ”HEROIC BOSSOM OF THE SERBIAN CAPITAL”
White Bone in the Clouds
This is a verse of a great poet, which made the Belgrade Fortress immortal. Full of symbols and history, full of wounds and medals, monuments and temples, all made of civilization layers. The Fortress today is the most important cultural and historical monument and touristic complex of Belgrade. The Tourist Organization of the Serbian capital city takes us for a little walk there, to remind and to sugges

Traces
A SAD JOURNEY DOWN THE PATHS OF KAIMAKCHALAN, A HUNDRED YEARS LATER
In the Eagle’s Heights
We, the generation that has ruined so much, and that has left to its descendants far less than it had received from his ancestors, have only began to clear the weeds and wild grass and catalogue the cemeteries of heroes whose exploits we rest. And there, at 2,521 meters above sea level and above the world, makes your heart stop. From somewhere, the words thunder: ”To all commanders, leaders and soldiers: the fate of the Fatherland depends on the speed of your penetration! You must penetrate boldly, without rest, to the very limits of human and horse power. To death, do not stop! With unwavering faith and hope, heroes, go ahead to the Fatherland!”

Remembrance
RESTORED SERBIAN MILITARY CEMETERY IN RUMA
In Honor of the Immortal Ancestors
They died mostly from the wounds inflicted on the Leget field, on the left bank of the Sava, in September 1914. Already at the beginning of World War Two, the occupiers demolished the cemetery. It waited for its full reconstruction, here, until November 2016. The venture was initiated by the Veterans’ Society, and was financed by the Ministry of Labor, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs Serbia

Sanctities
CONSECRATED CHURCH OF SAINT JOVAN VLADIMIR IN BAR, ONE OF THE BIGGEST IN THE ORTHODOX WORLD
A Millennium of the Holy King
The magnificent temple shows that indeed ”our brains are older than theirs, our self-confidence and patience much greater than theirs”. Particles of relics of St. Sava the Sanctified, St. Jovan Vladimir and the martyrs of Jasenovac are built into the holy altar of this temple, the biggest one in Montenegro. The consecration was carried by Patriarch of Jerusalem Teofilo III, followed by Patriarch of Serbia Irinej, in the presence of eighteen archbishops and metropolitans from all local churches… This event and this great endeavor will outlive all of us and shine through all times

Palette
STOJAN ARALICA (1883-1980), FAMOUS SERBIAN PAINTER AND GRAPHIC ARTIST
Ode to the Sun and Light
His intimism and all poetic phases withdraw before the eruptive and solar force of his coloring. He imbued everything into quick moves, into tasty coloring, into sunlight – the vivid landscape, olive groves, the sea, and the lean red soil. He studied painting in Munich, graphic art in Prague, lights in the Mediterranean. He lived in Belgrade since 1948. People remember his exhibitions, his unique lyricism, Caravaggio-like painting on black background. People also remember the unusual way he departed, at the age of 97

Fairytale
HOW MANDREL OVERPOWERED THE SEA WITCH, EVIL DWARF BARABAS AND DANGEROUS SHARK
Adventure in the Blue Cave
Having friends is a great thing. Real friends. It’s even greater when your friends are all good creatures under the sky. Then you can hide in a shell, ask dolphins for help, make seagulls your couriers. Stupid witches, bloodthirsty sharks, evil dwarfs of different formats and vocations can’t do anything to you. Because you know that gentleness and goodness are the most powerful forces in the world. You smile, take what you have to carry with you and continue

ACTOR TANASIJE UZUNOVIĆ, OLD-SCHOOL TYPE, ABOUT ART AND FREEDOM
We Must Confront Ourselves
He almost became a painter, but things turned out differently. He had powerful theatrical roles, played in more than fifty movies, TV dramas and series. Only in Belgrade, his family had nine houses before World War II, while he lived in thirty-two rented apartments. He knows we are going through a very difficult period, he sees ugliness leering at us from all sides, he sees that we are chained with programmed vulgarity and superficiality. We must, he says, return to our own original image, our true identity, through culture and history. This is where the truth is, this is where the solution lays

Winner
ALEKSANDAR ATANASIJEVIĆ, MEMBER OF SERBIAN NATIONAL VOLLEYBALL TEAM
Maturing for Returning to the Top
It is true that the number of children involved in sports is reducing throughout the world. Marketing machineries show that sports are attractive only due to the money spinning in it. The disturbance and consequences are far-reaching. In spite of all problems, the situation in Serbia is better than in many other countries. The essence and true nature of sport is still familiar to us. It is not easy to be a supreme sportsman, it is a great obligation, but the satisfaction is enormous. Sport is a culture of living, a view of the world, so it should be introduced to young people. The Serbian national volleyball team has quality, and the continuity of results will come with the maturing of the team
