SERBIA - National review, No 64
SERBIA - National review, No 64


Prologue

What is happening around us is neither a parody nor a bad joke. It only seemed that way. Fine, ”we have one life, here, and this is not a dress rehearsal”. That is why we will not give up even when it seems to us that we cannot take it anymore. We will continue the commenced therapy with self-awareness, refreshment with a meaning, defense with humor. There are other means, of course. The autumn is mild and golden, so it is easier for us to pretend that we are fine. And that we don’t see that the ”dogs are released and the rocks tied”. The new edition of National Review is before us, and in it the real Serbia, melancholically, is still waiting for us. To get to our senses, to ourselves and to her. <

Paths
OVČAR-KABLAR GORGE, FROM DAWN TILL DUSK
Grateful to the Creator
The twenty kilometers long gorge amazes with its unforgettable meanders of the Western Morava river, twelve Orthodox Christian shrines, two lakes, a spa, one of the most fascinating belvederes in Serbia. One is simply astonished by the beauty and touching grace. When all this is complemented with tourist attractions, creativity of both hosts and guests, there is plenty of reasons for you to set off there. To be convinced or just renew what you already know

Guide
IN GORNJA DOBRINJA, NEAR POŽEGA, THE BIRTH VILLAGE OF MILOŠ OBRENOVIĆ
Faint Memory of the Prince
It could be an excellent ”prince’s tour”, a nice element of the ”culture of memory”. There is a monument, a church, a chardak, a belfry, a mark where his birth house used to be. But there is no asphalt, lighting, accommodation capacities. Not even a tavern. This history and beauty seem to be waiting for us in vain. If the prince were to stop by today, many in Požega and Dobrinja, and especially in Belgrade, would not have such a good time

Destinations
NATURE PARK ”BELJANSKA BARA” NEAR SRBOBRAN
Important Habitat of Rare Species
In this special area of 326 hectares, there are numerous animal and plant species protected under national and international regulations. There is also a four-kilometer long pedestrian and biking trail, a school in nature, hunting and fishing grounds... The construction of an outlook, visitor center, and for smaller boats has been announced. There are also two ethno farms with interesting culinary offer. Accessibility and proximity to large cities are among its trump cards

Undertaking
RESTORATION OF THE LARGEST ORTHODOX CHURCH IN RUMA
Approaching the Centennial of Unification
The precursor of the Cathedral of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles (the Greek Church) existed as early as the 18th century. Today’s building was erected in the middle of the 19th century, and since the renovation from 1905, which was marked by Herman Bole and Uroš Predić with their mastery, it is also an important cultural monument. It is planned that the current extensive renovation will be completed by November 2018, when Srem celebrates the 100th anniversary of the unification with Serbia. The people of Srem made this decision was made at the Grand National Assembly in Ruma

Entertainment
AN UNUSUAL ATTRACTION IN THE BELGRADE ”GARDEN OF GOOD HOPE”
Popcorn Forever
Only several original Cretors’ popcorn wagons from the XIX century exist today. One is in the Museum of Marion, two in private collections in Belgium and Switzerland… The best preserved wagon and the only that still makes popcorn is in the Belgrade Zoo, bringing joy to local children. Americans offered staggering amounts for it, but the seller-owner calmly informed them that only popcorn is for sale

Illuminants
UNUSUAL MONK PANTELEIMON FROM CHILANDAR AND HIS TESTIMONY
A Paradigm that Makes Us Stronger
German by origin, son of an industrialist from Schwarzwald, educated and successful manager, suddenly discovered a call from Mt. Athos in the window of a bookstore near Frankfurt. He was introduced into the depths of Orthodox Christianity and monastic path by elder Mitrophan of Chilandar. In Chilandar, Helmut became Panteleimon, the all-merciful. He made the desolated metochion Jovanica an astonishing place. After a quarter of a century, he moved from Mt. Athos to Grabovac, Serbian monastery in Hungary, which he also reformed. There he passed away

Memorial
NJEGOŠ, POET, BISHOP, RULER, TELLING STORIES THROUGH THE BEST SERBIAN STORYTELLERS
On the Roof of Motherland
In his pupils, he carried everything, from the wolf’s legends to the heavenly throne. Every day he experienced a Kosovo, old and contemporary. He knew that a Serb who says that Kosovo is lost is lost as well. And that, when Serbia stumbles, Montenegro sinks. He prayed that his nation never gives birth to traitors and never tastes foreign poisons. He admired beauty and loyalty. Stories about him are immortal and endless like his votive Chapel on top of Lovćen. Here are some new stories from the hand of one of the most significant Serbian writers and chief editor of the Serbian Literary Cooperative

Eye
ANASTAS JOVANOVIĆ (1817–1899), FIRST LITHOGRAPHER IN SERBIA, IMPORTANT REPRESENTATIVE OF THE XIX CENTURY SERBIAN CULTURE
The Art of Testifying
He considered art not as a mechanic, but a personal and soulful description of reality. He created true-to-life portraits of important people in XIX century Serbian culture and history. He was among the first in Serbia engaged in photography, aquarelle, historical reconstructions, the best Serbian painter in the first half of the XIX century. He created the first stereoscopic images of Vienna, where he had an icons and ecclesiastical items workshop. He left behind valuable material and powerful works of art

Life, Novels
PROFESSOR MILOŠ KOVIĆ, PHD, HISTORIAN REACHING THE WORLD BEHIND MASKS
Road to Freedom
The Drina is not a river, it’s a spine. Its great history still hasn’t been written. Generations from the 1960s were born and prepared for one and found themselves in a completely different world. Difficult and exciting times enabled us to see things and people as they really are. After everything we’ve survived, it was impossible to remain apolitical. The Serbian demographic drama is a consequence of a spiritual and ethical crisis, not economic. It’s a question of all our questions. Self-chauvinism and ”spirit of self-denial” are nothing new in Serbian history. An attempt to replace the central Serbian myth with a foreign one, more convenient for shaping ”the class of the obedient”, is in progress. In the battle for the souls of our children, tradition is not a tie, it’s a means of defense and liberation

Champions
MILORAD KRIVOKAPIĆ, THE PRESIDENT OF THE WATER POLO ASSOCIATION OF THE SERBIA AND A CHAMPION OF THIS SPORT
No Shortcut to the Top
He was in the generation that won the world gold in 1986 in Madrid. And also the Olympic gold in Los Angeles in 1988. He was officially the best goalkeeper in the world, and many say the best of all times. In 1986, he was proclaimed the best water polo player on the planet. (...)Today, he is leading the Association whose national team has long been dominating the world water polo. He knows very well what values are built into the foundations for such successes. And he tries to transfer this knowledge to the younger ones

People
BRANKO ĐUROVIĆ, PILOT, ONE OF THE FAMOUS HIGHFLYERS FROM NIKŠIĆ AND VRŠAC INSTRUCTORS
Plowmen of Heavenly Fields
His ancestors liberated Skadar. With the sharp-eyed prior Leontije, they preserved most of the gold of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, which was in 1941, during the retreat, stored in Ostrog. And he flew in the way possible at that time: through the Aero Club in Kapino Polje, then the School for Reserve Aviation Officers, and then he obtained a license to fly civilian planes. He flew planes carrying the top state leaders of Yugoslavia, all the way to Milošević and Koštunica. His numerous students still fly around the globe today, from Dubai to America. Flying, he says, is like playing pool: as there are no two identical games, there are no two identical flights
