SERBIA - National review, No 82


PROLOGUE

All the masks seem to have fallen off. That is why everyone has to wear them now. The virus was almost defeated in the morning, and we were all defeated in the evening. This year, they say, the Serbian economy is the best in Europe, but it is standing in line for all grants from the East and West. And it borrows on all sides, relentlessly, as if it will never have to repay. A lot needs to be changed to keep everything the same. Amy and the crowd must not be left idle; they must always have something to do or something to gossip about. Machiavelli knew that back in the 15th century, so why should we be surprised today? We created a new issue of National Review. Step in. What you see is us, without a mask. <

Destinations
ČORTANOVCI, THE PLACE WHERE FRUŠKA GORA MARRIES THE DANUBE
On the Right Bank of Beauty
They have a theater festival dedicated to Shakespeare, King’s Hill and Royal Villa, the beach from an unforgettable movie, deep forests and a powerful river, the only tunnel in Vojvodina and a stunning viaduct, a unique view of the slopes of Fruška Gora, a mountain lodge that is not reached by climbing but descending, the view that extends as far as Karlovci and Novi Sad... The nature gave Čortanovci so much, and everything else was up to the people and their cleverness. They are still being waited for

Guide
IN THE GARDEN, BAJA’S, THIS STRANGE SUMMER AND AUTUMN
It’s Over, We’re Uncovered
When the little house on the Drina was announced picture of the month by National Geographic in 2012, local jokers said: ”It’s over, we’re uncovered!” That’s what actually happened this summer. There were so many tourists, that the police had to regulate traffic on Tara. Fifty people used to stand in a row waiting for the Banjska Stena belvedere. (…) However, Bajina Bašta, the Drina and Tara, together with jelly and juniper brandy, repaid them. They will not forget it by next year

Around the Town
IN DORĆOL, THE OLD NEIGHBORHOOD IN WHICH THE TEMPERAMENT OF BELGRADE WAS SHAPED
Troparion for the Former Periphery
Yes, today the ”strict center”, it is the oldest periphery of Belgrade. The old inhabitants of this neighborhood are mostly in exile, in the New Belgrade blocks, in the settlements on the left bank of the Danube, along the Ibar highway, under Avala, or somewhere in a world that grows darker by minute. And the farther they are from Dorćol, the more Dorćol they are. Because for them it was never a matter of the address where they were registered, but of spirit and style. The breed, so to speak. When they pass the fortress, the old residents of Dorćol inevitably stop by Ružica Church even now. Light a candle for all the former neighbors, if there are any, and for the spirit of old Dorćol, if there still is one

Sanctuaries
BUILDING THE CHAPEL OF THE NEW MARTYRS OF JASENOVAC IN URAL, IN THE HEART OF EURASIA
Worshipping in Unity
The chapel in the Church of the Icon of Mother-of-God of Kazan will be the first place of worship in the Russian lands dedicated to Serbian martyrs of Jasenovac. The chapel will be designed in Serbian style. A large fresco will depict a group of Russian new martyrs, the holy imperial family, Patriarch Tikhon, many bishops, monks, faithful people on one side. New martyrs of Jasenovac, with St. Petar of Dabar-Bosnia, Platon of Banja Luka, Vukašin of Klepci… will be on the other side. It requests great spiritual and financial support

Holy Men
ST. JOHN THE RUSSIAN, WARRIOR AND MIRACLE-WORKER, ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED SAINTS IN GREECE, SERBIAN BROTHER
Defending Serbian in Heavens
”I must go to Serbia”, he said to those whom he addressed in their dreams, in May 1999, while putting on the uniform of the Serbian army. ”Our brothers are under attack only because of their Orthodox faith, because of their faith in the Son of God. Our Christ is bleeding there again. The devil is escalating dangerously. We, all of us, must help our brothers with the strongest thing we have got.” The Kumanovo Agreement, which ended the vicious aggression of nineteen countries of the Northern Atlantic Pact on small Serbia, was signed on June 9, 1999. On the day of passing away and celebrating St. John the Russian. From that flagrant and unfair war, Serbia came out unbroken and undefeated, which equals a miracle

Traces
SERBIAN MILITARY CEMETERIES IN SOFIA AND DOBRICH
Buried in the Negligence of Descendants
During the Great War, tens of thousands of Serbian interned civilians and prisoners of war were in Bulgaria, however Serbian historiography has never studied it seriously up to now. Despite geographic vicinity and linguistic similarity, despite archive material being available for almost half a century. No one cared for or researched Serbian military memorials in Bulgaria. Thus irreplaceable losses. Numerous Serbian cemeteries throughout Bulgaria have grown into weeds, wooden crosses on tombs rotted, and those who knew their locations have passed away a long time ago. The responsibility for this sorrowful outcome is certainly on the Serbian state. Today, the only thing that remained was the military cemetery in Sofia and seven tombs of Serbian volunteers on the International Military Cemetery in Dobrich, as well as the prisoner of war bridge in Komarevo. Even that, shame on us, is insufficiently known

PROFESSOR VLADAN NEDIĆ, PHD, AND HIS QUIET LESSONS BUILT INTO FOUNDATIONS
Silversmith of Oral Poetry Doctrine
He started from lyric poetry, first the ancient, mythological, which easily turned into love poetry. Professor Nedić’s unique science emerged from such material, archaic worlds and cults they grew from, universal motifs created in Serbian language. He was later equally dedicated to epic poetry. That gentle, refined man interpreted the epic world, full of mythical heroes on horses with supernatural powers. His words were well-weighed, he had a perfect expression, he was the personification of clarity and highest meaning, both in books and life

Eye
BOŽA ILIĆ (1919–1993), PAINTER, CELEBRITY AND VICTIM OF SOCIALIST REALISM
Maturity for Correcting Injustices
He knew most about Cezanne, least about Picasso, and loved Van Gogh. He was not impressed by Courbet. Although deaf, he made violins. His sudden rise, after the circumstances and political course changed, brought him a sudden decline and oblivion. Still, in the new order of things, this expressive painter and honorable man found strength to create his own style in modern manifestation. He looked for his new world within himself, remaining open towards people and life, clarity and hope. He loved his homeland and often painted its landscapes

Arena
JANKO TIPSAREVIĆ, GREAT NAME OF SERBIAN TENNIS
Brought Up for Feats
He was junior vice champion of the world, member of the national team at the age of only sixteen, one of the winters of the World Cup in 2009 and Davis Cup in 2010, one of the top ten players on the planet for two years. An injury stopped him exactly at the moment when he understood what was necessary to stay on the very top. He does not play any longer, but he hasn’t withdrawn either. His family has increased, his tennis academy is becoming global and he also began working as Filip Krajinović’s coach

Record
DRAGO BATA MAROJEVIĆ, LIFE AND ADVENTURES
Fisherman, the Master of His Life
It is gone. That time when there was poetry in boxing and boxing in poetry. When the kids under the linden trees of Nikšić knew Vito Nikolić and Les Ivanović by heart. Bata Marojević spent many days and especially nights, traveled many roads and distances, in order to understand the irresistibility of his own childhood and homeland. From Nikšić, via Bar, Novi Sad, Belgrade, Cyprus, Switzerland, he arrived again on the Adriatic Coast. After all the storms and temptations, he became a peaceful fisherman from Piran. Even today, he finds a stronghold and refuge in his memories
