D e a r g u e s t s o f B e lgra de, Powerful and ambitious, charming and cheerful, Belgrade is a city that has shown that, in terms of tourism, business, sport, culture and entertainment, it can be a leader in the region; a capital that attracts people with the force of its energy. One striking feature of Belgrade is its cosmopolitanism, which is rooted and intertwined in the history of the city. In this issue of BelGuest you will be introduced to the Jewish heritage of Belgrade in the first of a series of texts that we use to present different national communities’ stamp on the city. With a desire to familiarise you with preparations for the world’s major sporting event in 2012, we spoke with Vlade Divac, celebrated Serbian athlete and president of the Serbian Olympic Committee. You will get to know Belgrade best if you choose one of its organised sightseeing programmes: tours of the city on an open bus, tram, bicycle; a visit to the palace complex; walking tours and boat trips will relay to you the story of the history and tradition of the city. From this spring the offer includes a new travel programme dedicated to famous Serb writer - Nobel laureate Ivo Andrić. Take a walk in Andrić’s footsteps for yourself and visit the places where he lived and worked. We also want to introduce to you the most significant events in the city and simultaneously show you the range of contents and strength of a city where at least one exceptional event is taking place almost every day. We want you to choose your own events from this mosaic and thereby get to know the capital of Serbia more fully. Belgrade’s restaurants, cafés and clubs have plenty to offer you - national culinary specialities, as well as sophisticated dishes from all continents and beautiful atmospheres’ ranging from rustic to hypermodern, and unforgettable musical entertainment for all tastes. You should also be sure to familiarise yourself with the life of Belgrade beside the rivers. Bring your copy of BelGuest and start exploring Belgrade, the city with an open heart.

BETWEEN CREATION & SUFFERING Life on the border between East and West has provided Belgrade with a rich and eventful history. Within the city various world religions and cultures have met, contributing to centuries of city life as a multicultural and multiethnic society. Foreign travel writers say that from the 16th century until recent times the population of Belgrade has been very mixed: its inhabitants have included Turks, Serbs, Jews, Greek ‘Cincars’, Roma, Dubrovnik natives, Armenians, Germans, Hungarians... They all had their own customs, specific national dress, houses of worship, interests, cuisine and other habits, while their history and culture are, through mutual interaction, part of the comprehensive history of Belgrade. And they have all left their mark on the palm print of Belgrade. Through this text we will introduce you to the traces of those who, by living, working and creating in Belgrade, created the city’s Jewish legacy. 6

ings of the Jewish municipality and the Jewish women’s society, completely marked the lives of almost every dorćol Jew. Tracing these buildings, which are located in the streets solonska (Thessaloniki), Jervrejska (Jewish), Tsar uroš, Tsar dušan and King petar, we are reminded of the history of Belgrade’s Jews, their customs, traditions, daily lives and work, and the suffering that the wars brought them. The stamp of the Belgrade community was provided by the spanish Jews, who were numerous and prominent in cultural traditions. almost all of them lived, until the end of the 19th century, in dorćol, in Jalija, which was composed of the streets Jevrejska, solonska, princa evgenija (prince eugene’s) and avramova (abraham’s). The ashkenazi Jews came to Belgrade later and lived in various parts of the city. They are not included in this compilation. JEWISH SEPHARDIC MUNICIPALITY – JEWISH HISTORICAL MUSEUM at no. 71 Kralja petra street stands the building that houses the Jewish community, the Jewish historical Museum and the association of Jewish Communities of serbia. The building is richly decorated with oriental ornaments. designed by architect samuel sumbula, it was built in 1928 as the new home of the Jewish Community. Between the two world wars Belgrade was home to two Jewish communities: sephardic and ashk enazi. all Belgrade Jews were legally obliged to

belong to one of these two communities. There they paid taxes and thereby became full members of this particular community. The Jewish Community was tasked with catering for the religious, educational and cultural needs of its members. it oversaw the synagogues and Jewish educational institutions, as well as the many humanitarian societies. Following the start of nazi occupation in 1941, this building was occupied by members of the folksdeutsche Kulturbund cultural organisation. all of the building’s paintings by famous painter leon Cohen were destroyed or taken away, while Jews were no longer even allowed to pass that part of the street. after the end of world war ii, the union of Jewish Communities founded the Jewish historical Museum in this building in 1948. it is still there as their only specialised, highly complex museum. in addition to museum material, there is also an archive that documents evidence of the life of Jewish communities from serbia and the territory of the former Yugoslavia in the 19th century and even more in the 20th century, including the holocaust and the modern era. JEWISH LADIES SOCIETY women were actively involved in the social life of the Jewish community, gathered in their own societies. among them the Jewish ladies society, founded in 1874, stood out in particular. Jewish women were the carriers of tradition in the home and family, maintaining the traditions of preserv-

Geniza at the Jewish cemetery in Belgrade SEPHARDIM AND ASHKENAZIM although there are traces that Jews lived in Belgrade as far back as roman times, their migration can only be reliably traced from the 16th century. They arrived from different cultural and historical locations and even spoke different languages. Two groups were formed among this diaspora: The sephardim (spanish Jews) and the ashkenazi (germanic Jews). From the 16th century there existed an organised Jewish community, which started its development and struggle for survival in the midst of the difficult historical events endured by Belgrade. almost nothing has remained of the old dorćol houses that were destroyed during the two world wars. however, the buildings of Jewish institutions that were built between the wars remain. some of them still exist, but their purpose has changed entirely. several buildings, the old synagogue, the Beth israel synagogue, the building of the oneg shabbat society, the build-

ing evening. according to religious tradition, three meals are eaten during the sabbath, in order to ensure safety against three troubles. dinner on Friday and breakfast on saturday are served ceremoniously at home, while for the third meal, lunch at noon on the saturday, pious Jews gather at the oneg shabbat. during world war ii the building housed the Jewish hospital. Today this building houses the rex cinema.

Jewish Women’s Society,Belgrade, Belgrade, 1900 ing and fostering the language (they mostly spoke Judaeo-spanish, ladino), costumes, cuisine and raising children, but they were forbidden from moving in this circle, especially the young girls. as such, the founding of the Jewish ladies society was a turning point for Jewish woman. in particular, a new spirit and new content were introduced to the society between the wars, with the arrival of helen demajo. The Jewish Community presented its women with a building in solunska street. The women’s Trade school was opened, but after ten years of operating a lack of facilities led to the society gifting the school to the Ministry of Trade and industry. since then it has been known as the first lower the handicraft school in Belgrade. neverthless, the society’s greatest concern was children. in 1938, on the corner of Belgrade’s Tadeuša Košćuška and visoka stevana streets, a building was constructed to house a care home for children and a counselling centre for mothers. The building was designed by architects Miša Manojlović and isak azriel. inside the building there were departments for preschool children, a health centre for mothers and a shelter. society members were on duty each day. The war interrupted the work of the Jewish ladies society. Today this building houses the Faculty of special education. ONEG SHABBAT – JOY OF SABBATH Do not cast me aside in old age, do not abandon me when my strength departs. This symbolic inscription above the entrance to the building at 16 Jevrejska street and her eclectic style of decoration serve to emphasise the

JEWISH MUNICIPALITY

A Jewish Municipality still exists in Belgrade. It aims to enable the life and continuity of the Jewish community, protecting its identity and fostering Jewish traditions and culture. This is realised through its rich cultural, educational, religious and humanitarian associations, as well as the various activities it initiates and supports under the fundamental principles of Jewish faith and tradition. It has a very well developed cultural, educational, religious and social life. Religious life is administered at the Sukat Shalom Synagogue, while burials and funerals are performed at the Jewish cemetery in Belgrade. The Serbian capital has a population of 2,200 Jews today. purpose of the building, which housed a retirement home. The name of the society and the building translate as saturday’s enjoyment. This building, designed by architect samuel sumbul, was built in 1923. The upper second floor façade displays the words oneg shabb at and gemilum hasadim in hebrew and Cyrillic. The ground floor had two rooms that were used for various social events, weddings, religious celebrations, humanitarian needs and the activities of numerous associations of Belgrade Jews. here we will only mention the festivities that took place during the biggest religious saturday holiday, shabbat, the sabbath. it is celebrated every saturday in memory of the belief that god created the world in six days and rested on the seventh day. it is also celebrated in memory of the time when the Jews were slaves in egypt. shabbat begins when the first stars appear in the sky on a Friday afternoon and ends the follow-

BETH ISRAEL SYNAGOGUE The Beth israel synagogue was built in Cara uroša (Tsar uroš) street in 1908 and its entire history was turbulent. during world war i one of its domes was damaged and it met its end in world war ii, when the germans set the building on fire in 1944. a new building was erected on the foundations of the old synagogue and it now houses the gallery of Frescoes. Today only the former ashkenazi synagogue at 19 Kosmajka street remains active. SEPHARDIC STELA in ruzveltova (roosevelt) street lies the Jewish sephardic cemetery. although the word cemetery is associated with death and decay, this site actually represents a cultural-historical and historical-artistic site. The monument over geniza, with an open scroll of the Jewish Bible, the Torah, testifies to the symbolism of the purpose of this tomb. namely, there is an interesting Jewish tradition known as “genizot”, which suggests that damaged and old books be buried instead of thrown away, with a burial ceremony accompanied by the sermons of famous rabbis. This tomb holds buried books and damaged copies of the Torah that suffered during the serbian uprising of 1815. The entire cemetery is dominated by the monument to soldiers who fell in the past wars of salvation, freedom and unification of the homeland (1912-1919). perched high on a white marble pillar is the monument’s immense twoheaded eagle, with wings spread ready to take flight. The star of david in the middle of the column, with a soldier’s traditional serbian hat (šajkača), rifle and sabre at the foot, symbolise the joint struggle of serbs and Jews for the liberation of the homeland. The names of 132 fallen Jewish heroes are inscribed on the white marble - one after another like a roll call. Behind the monument are engraved njegoš’s verses: “...Your example will be taught through song How could one talk with immortality” The large monument at the end of the main avenue of the sephardic cemetery is the work of archi-


Oneg Shabbat – building façade, 1922 tect Bogdan Bogdanović. it was erected by surviving Jews in 1952, who by so doing expressed their love, gratitude and remembrance for the fallen soldiers and victims of fascism. This monument symbolically represents the unknown graves of all victims of fascism who died in death camps and at other sites of mass execution. MUTUAL INFLUENCES Jewish people lived in Belgrade for almost 400 years, before the nazis destroyed them overnight. They were brutally murdered, gassed and shot during just a few months between 1941 and 1942. all of their property was destroyed and everything that characterised the Belgrade Jewish community until world war ii disappeared. of Belgrade’s 12,000 Jews, only about 1,500 survived the horrors of war. all that remains are a few of the buildings in which they lived, rejoiced and grieved, which, as we have seen, have seen their purposes changed and only a few older Belgraders remember a neigh-

bour that is no more. They lived there with all of their specificities and fought to preserve their identity and culture, which permeated with the heritage of the serbian people. Mutual influences also left traces on everyday life, especially in the kitchen. we chose two interesting examples. Tako patišpanj, under which housewives label dough for cakes, is actually pan di Spagna (spanish bread), a traditional sephardic cake. however, the most interesting mutual influence is certainly the sweet syrup known as Slatko, which is served to guests. slatko is extremely typical of sephardic cuisine under the spanish (ladino) word - dulse.

IZMEĐU STVARANJA I STRADANJA Život na granici između Zapada i Istoka, doneo je Beogradu bogatu i burnu prošlost. U njemu su se susretale različite svetske religije i kulture, što je doprinelo da vekovima živi kao multikulturalno i multietničko društvo. Strani putopisci ističu da je od 16. veka pa do novijih vremena stanovništvo Beograda veoma izmešano: u njemu žive Turci, Srbi, Jevreji, Grci Cincari, Cigani, Dubrovčani, Jermeni, Nemci, Mađari... Svi su imali svoje običaje, specifičnu nošnju, bogomolje, zanimanja, ishranu i druge navike, a njihova istorija i kultura, u međusobnom prožimanju, sastavni su deo sveobuhvatne istorije Beograda. I svi su na liniji dlana Beograda ostavili svoje tragove. Ovim tekstom predstavićemo vam trag koji su, živeći, radeći i stvarajući Beogradu, u zaostavštinu ostavili Jevreji.

SEFARDI I AŠKENAZI iako postoje tragovi da su Jevreji u Beogradu živeli još u vreme rimljana, njihovo doseljavanje može se pouzdano pratiti tek od 16. veka. u Beograd su stigli iz različitih kulturno-istorijskih celina, govorili su čak i različitim jezicima. Bile su to dve grupacije formirane u dijaspori: sefardi (španski Jevreji) i aškenazi (nemački Jevreji). od 16. veka postoji organizovana jevrejska zajednica, koja je započela svoj razvoj i borbu za opstanak u teškim istorijskim zbivanjima kroz koja je prolazio Beograd. od starih dorćolskih kuća uništenih u prvom i drugom svetskom ratu danas nije ostalo gotovo ništa. Međutim, ostale su zgrade jevrejskih institucija koje su podignute između dva rata. neke od njih i danas postoje, ali im je namena u potpunosti izmenjena. nekoliko zgrada, stara

sinagoga, sinagoga Bet israel, zgrada društva oneg Šabat, zgrada Jevrejske opštine i Jevrejskog ženskog društva obeležile su u potpunosti život skoro svakog Jevrejina sa dorćola. Tragom tih zdanja, koja se nalaze u Jervrejskoj i solunskoj ulici, ulicama Cara uroša, Cara dušana i Kralja petra, podsetićemo na istoriju beogradskih Jevreja, njihove običaje, tradiciju, svakodnevni život i rad, i na stradanje koje su im ratovi doneli. pečat beogradskoj zajednici davali su španski Jevreji, bili su brojniji i izraženije kulturne tradicije. gotovo svi su do kraja 19. veka živeli na dorćolu, Jaliji, koju su sačinjavale Jevrejska, solunska, princa evgenija i avramova ulica. aškenazi u Beograd dolaze kasnije, živeli su u raznim delovima grada i nisu obuhvaćeni u ovom napisu.

JEVREJSKA SEFARDSKA OPŠTINA JEVREJSKI ISTORIJSKI MUZEJ u ulici Kralja petra br. 71. nalazi se zgrada u kojoj su Jevrejska opština, Jevrejski istorijski muzej i savez Jevrejskih opština srbije. Zgrada sa bogato ukrašenom orijentalnom ornamentikom, arhitekte samuela sumbula, sagrađena je 1928. godine kao novi dom Jevrejske opštine. između dva svetska rata u Beogradu su postojale dve jevrejske opštine – sefardska i aškenaska. svi beogradski Jevreji po zakonu su morali pripadati jednoj od te dve opštine. Tu su plaćali porez i time postajali punopravni članovi jedne određene zajednice. Jevrejska opština imala je zadatak da obezbedi verske, vaspitne i kulturne potrebe svojih članova. starala se o sinagogama i jevrejskim vaspitnim ustanovama, te o mnogim

Jevrejska Street, Dorćol, circa 1900 humanitarnim društvima. posle okupacije, 1941. godine, ovu zgradu zauzeli su pripadnici folksdojčerske organizacije Kulturbund i uništili ili odneli sve slike poznatog slikara leona Koena, a Jevreji nisu smeli ni da prolaze tim delom ulice. posle drugog svetskog rata u toj zgradi je, 1948. godine, savez Jevrejskih opština osnovao Jevrejski istorijski muzej, koji je i danas tu, kao jedini specijalizovani, veoma kompleksan muzej. pored muzejskog materijala, tu se nalazi i arhiv, čija dokumentacija svedoči o životu jevrejskih zajednica iz srbije, ali i sa teritorije cele bivše Jugoslavije u 19, još više u 20. veku, uključujući holokaust i savremeno doba. JEVREJSKO ŽENSKO DRUŠTVO u društvenom životu jevrejske zajednice aktivno su učestvovale i žene okupljene u svoja društva. Među njima naročito se isticalo Jevrejsko žensko društvo, osnovano 1874. godine. Jevrejska žena bila je nosilac tradicije u okviru doma i porodice, održavala je tradiciju čuvajući i negujući jezik (uglavnom su govorile ladino), kostim, ishranu, vaspitanje dece, ali joj je iz tog kruga bilo zabranjeno kretanje, naročito mladim devojkama. Zbog toga je osnivanje Jevrejskog ženskog društva bilo

JEVREJSKA OPŠTINA

U Beogradu i dana postoji Jevrejska opština. Ona ima za cilj da omogući život i kontinuitet jevrejske zajednice u Beogradu, zaštiti njen identitet i neguje jevrejsku tradiciju i kulturu. To ostvaruje kroz svoja razvijena kulturno-obrazovna, verska i humanitarna društva, inicira i podržava razne aktivnosti koje su u skladu sa osnovnim principima jevrejske vere i tradicije. Ima veoma razvijen kulturno-obrazovni, verski i društveni život. Verski život se odvija u sinagogi ‘’Sukat Šalom’’, a sahrane i pogrebni obredi vrše se na Jevrejskom groblju u Beogradu. U Beogradu danas živi oko 2200 Jevreja prekretnica za jevrejsku ženu. naročito su novi duh i novi sadržaji uneti u to društvo između dva rata, dolaskom Jelene demajo. Jevrejska opština je svojim ženama dodelila zgradu u solunskoj ulici. otvorena je Ženska zanatska škola. posle deset godina rada, zbog nedostatka prostorija, društvo je predalo školu Ministarstvu trgovine i industrije i to je od tada bila prva niža zanatska škola u Beogradu. najveća briga društva ipak su bila deca. u Beogradu je 1938, na uglu ulica Tadeuša Košćuška i visokog stevana, sagrađen dom za decu i savetovalište za majke. Zgradu su projektovali arhitekti Miša Manojlović i isak azriel. unutar zgrade postojala su

odeljenja za predškolsku decu, dispanzer za majke i prihvatilište. Članice društva su svaki dan dežurale. rat je prekinuo rad Jevrejskog ženskog društva. danas se u toj zgradi nalazi defektološki fakultet. ONEG ŠABAT – SUBOTNJE UŽIVANJE ne odbaci me u godinama starosti, ne napusti me kada me snaga izda. simboličan natpis iznad ulaznih vrata zgrade u Jevrejskoj 16, i njen dekorativni i eklektični stil naglašavali su samu namenu zgrade, u kojoj je bio smešten dom za stare. naziv društva i zgrade u prevodu znači subotnje uživanje. Zgrada, koju je projektovao arhitekta samuel sumbul, sagrađena je 1923. godine. na fasadi, u visini drugog sprata, ispisan je hebrejskim i ćiriličnim slovima: oneg Šabat i gemilum hasadim. u prizemlju su postojale dve sale, koje su služile za razna društvena događanja, svadbe, verske svečanosti, humanitarne potrebe, te za aktivnosti brojnih udruženja beogradskih Jevreja. pomenućemo samo svečanosti za vreme najvećeg verskog praznika subote, odnosno Šabata. on se slavi svake subote u znak sećanja na to da je Bog šest dana stvarao svet, a da se sedmog dana odmarao. slavi se i kao spomen na vreme kada su


Jevreji bili roblje u egiptu. Šabat počinje u petak, kada se pojave prve zvezde na nebu, a završava se naredne večeri. po verskim propisima, na Šabat se uzimaju tri obroka, kako bi se spasili od tri nevolje. večera u petak i doručak u subotu obavljali su se svečano kod kuće, a za treći obrok, ručak subotom u podne, pobožniji Jevreji okupljali su se u oneg Šabatu. Za vreme drugog svetskog rata u zgradi je bila smeštena Jevrejska ambulanta. danas se u zgradi nalazi bioskop rex. SINAGOGA BET ISRAEL godine 1908. podignuta je sinagoga Bet israel u ulici cara uroša. sama njena istorija bila je burna. Za vreme prvog svetskog rata oštećeno joj je jedno kube. Kraj je doživela u drugom svetskom ratu, kada su je nemci, 1944. godine, zapalili. na temeljima te zgrade podignuto je novo zdanje, sada je u njemu galerija fresaka. danas je aktivna jedino nekadašnja aškenaska sinagoga u Kosmajkoj 19. SEFARDSKE STELE u ruzveltovoj ulici nalazi se Jevrejsko sefardsko groblje. iako sama reč groblje asocira na smrt i nestajanje, ono predstavlja kulturno-istorijsku i istorijsko-umetničku celinu. spomenik nad genizom, sa otvorenim svitkom Tore, simbolično govori o nameni ove grobnice. naime, kod Jevreja postoji zanimljiv običaj „genizot“, koji nalaže da se oštećene i stare knjige ne bacaju već se sahranjuju, pri čemu se održava i svečanost uz besede poznatih rabina. u ovoj grobnici sahranjene su stare knjige i oštećene Tore, koje su stradale u vreme srpskog ustanka 1815. godine. nad celim grobljem dominira „spomenik izginulim ratnicima u prošlim ratovima za spas, slobodu i ujedinjenje otadžbine (1912–1919)”. na visokom belom mermernom stubu monumental-

nog spomenika dvoglavi orao raširio je krila spreman da poleti. davidova zvezda u sredini stuba, u podnožju vojnička kapa (šajkača), puška i sablja, simbolično govore o zajedničkoj borbi srba i Jevreja za oslobođenje otadžbine. na belom mermeru isklesana su imena 132 pala jevrejska heroja – ređaju se kao na prozivci. u pozadini spomenika uklesani su njegoševi stihovi: „...vaš će primer učiti pjevača Kako treba s besmrtnošću zborit’.’ Monumentalni spomenik na kraju glavne aleje sefardskog groblja rad je arhitekte Bogdana Bogdanovića. podigli su ga preživeli Jevreji 1952. godine i time izrazili svoju ljubav, sećanje i zahvalnost palim borcima i žrtvama fašizma. spomenik simbolično predstavlja neznane grobove svih žrtava fašizma, stradalih po logorima smrti i drugim masovnim gubilištima. MEĐUSOBNI UTICAJI Jevreji su boravili u Beogradu gotovo 400 godina, a onda ih je nacizam uništio preko noći. Brutalno su ubijeni, ugušeni, streljani za samo nekoliko meseci u toku 1941–1942. godine. uništena je sva njihova imovina, nestalo je sve što je bilo karakteristično za beogradsku jevrejsku zajednicu do drugog svetskog rata. od 12.000 beogradskih Jevreja, njih oko 1.500 preživelo je užase rata. ostale su neke zgrade u kojima su živeli, radovali se i tugovali, koje su, kako smo videli, promenile namenu i samo se još poneki stari Beograđanin seća komšija kojih više nema. Živeli su tu sa svim svojim specifičnostima, borili se za očuvanje svog identiteta i kulture, koja se prožimala sa tekovinama srpskog naroda. Međusobni uticaj ostavio je traga i u svakodnevnom životu, naročito u kuhinji. izabrali smo samo dva zanimljiva primera. Tako patišpanj, pod kojim domaćice podrazumevaju testo za tortu,

Diploma of the Jewish Women’s Society,Belgrade, 1930

zapravo je pan di spagno (španski hleb), tradicionalni sefardski kolač. ipak, najzanimljiviji međusobni uticaj je svakako slatko kojim se služe gosti. slatko je veoma karakteristično za sefardsku kuhinju, to je španska (ladino) reč – dulse. ovaj tekst omaž je Jevrejima stanovnicima dorćola. oni su zajedno sa svojim komšijama delili nedaće i stradanja u ratnim vremenima, a radovali se i praznovali zajedno u srećna i mirna vremena.

VLADE DIVAC, PRESIDENT OF THE SERBIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE

MEDAL QUALITY

16

SPring | Proleće 2012 BelGuest


Judging by results achieved in recent years, there are athletes who stand out as those we can consider as our favourites for the upcoming Olympic Games. However, by singling out those names I’m convinced we would place additional pressure on our athletes, which we certainly don’t want to do. Athletes should be left to enjoy sport and simply participating in the Games, though we know that they have the quality required to win medals. In all discussions with our Olympic athletes I have insisted on that enjoyment of competing. It is only when you enjoy doing something that you can achieve top results.

W

hile the Olympic Clock next to Belgrade’s Hotel Moskva counts down the days remaining until the start of the London Olympics, the President of the Serbian Olympic Committee, Vlade Divac, tells athletes: “As someone who has already been, I consider being a member of the Olympic team and representing one’s country at the Olympics the greatest sporting honour and recognition of any athlete.” To discuss his sporting career, his humane and humanitarian work, the upcoming Olympic Games, the difference between gold and silver, his favourite medals, the patriarch, elements that make a superior athlete and the never fully explored coefficient of luck, we had a conversation recently in the offices of the Serbian Olympic Committee. This year’s London Olympics marks a significant milestone for our sport – the centenary of the first participation of Serbian athletes at the Olympics in Stockholm in 1912. Does that serve as additional motivation for our athletes? - The Olympics Games represents, in and of itself, the most important event in sport. The strongest motivation for every athlete is simply to compete in that top competition, along with the results they expect. The chance for some of these athletes to compete in this jubilee celebration and secure our country’s hundredth jubilee medal could also provide additional motivation. The handball team recently qualified for the Olympic Games and we have competitors in boxing, representatives in taekwondo for the first time, while table tennis players have also successfully fought for their place... If our men’s and ladies’ volleyball teams also manage to secure their place by the end of the qualifying period, we will have more than a hundred members of our team in London, which is quite good. The Olympic Committee of Serbia is continuing the tradition that began with the establishing of the Serbian Olympic Club on 23rd February 1910. Given the journey travelled so far, could it be said that there are better and worse times in sport? How much have things changed over the years in terms of the way assistance and support are provided to our top sports? - In the hundred-year history of our Olympic sport there have been different periods. The period between the world wars and the period after World War II are specific, sometime before our birth. During the ‘60s the first real results for our Olympic Committee began to appear. In such an interpretation of the past, the period of sanctions for Yugoslav athletes, which began in 1992, certainly stands out. I recall that as a great blow to sport in general, because no matter how much we wanted to participate and compete – which is the essence of sport – a political decision denied us that. For me, that is a big stain on the history of the Olympic movement, but here we are all fighting to ensure that something like that never happens again. And I agreed to be president of the Olympic Committee of Serbia largely for those reasons.

How would you assess the current level of state and social support for our Olympic team? - Of late I have been very pleased with that support. The state has clearly recognised the work of the Serbian Olympic Committee as an institution that functions as a service to athletes and all the programmes that we developed for our Olympians several years ago have been carried out. That gives us hope that our athletes will do well, because we managed to meet all of their requirements together. The system of training and preparing athletes is similar all over the world. With the development of the civilization we belong to, the majority of countries now offer athletes more or less equal conditions. The fact is that today the winners are truly “the best of the best”, if we can say that. What is it that determines who will be the top athletes today? What is the relationship between physical and mental preparation, motivation and “heart”?

- The conditions under which athletes work and train has changed over the years. We didn’t previously have a problem with doping, or it was less common than is the case today. Alongside well structured and coordinated training and mental preparation, education is also very important. Athletes need to know what it is that they are offered. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people around athletes who are looking out for their own interests. Here I am thinking of various managers and even some coaches who don’t select resources in order to obtain results. They see an athlete as a mechanism, a machine in the race, and not as a human being. We fight strongly to ensure athletes are educated in this sense; that they know what [supplements] they are being offered and what they are taking, as there have already been a mass of cases where analysis has proved that an athlete has been on some form of doping but that athlete had no idea they were being doped or what substances they had taken. You asked me what it is that determines top athletes: I say that it is education, physical and mental preparation, plenty of heart, certainly, but often also a bit of luck that determines the difference between gold and silver for two well-prepared athletes. As such, luck is sometimes an important factor. As an athlete you won all of the most important medals that exist in elite sport. Which one is dearest to you? - Each medal brings great satisfaction, as it represents a reward for effort and confirmation that you are on the right track. There are medals that we are emotionally attached to and medals that are significant because of the competition and among all of them I will highlight a medal that was not so significant in terms of the importance of the level of the competition, but is very dear to me nonetheless. Namely, we were the first team after the aforementioned sanctions to compete in the European championships and we came back with a

18

SPring | Proleće 2012 BelGuest

gold medal. I think we only realised the significance of what we had done when we returned home. That was the first spontaneous celebration marking the return of successful athletes and hundreds of thousands of people waited for us all the way from the airport to the city centre. That was not just a medal, but rather that special additional emotion that makes something bigger and better than sport. Speaking of medals, what is the difference in experience for athletes when it comes to winning gold or silver? - An athlete’s mentality is such that they are always striving to be greater, faster and better. When it comes to medals, if we are aware that we did everything we could, then silver is quite satisfying. However, if we are aware that we missed some chance, then it is not satisfying at all. It is much more difficult to live with this type of credit afterwards. The chivalrous battle of the sporting arena has always been at the heart of sport. Elite athletes are also determined by their system of moral norms, fair play etc. How much is the principle of “fair play” evident in sport today? - A lot, especially in elite sport. Being a real champion means being dedicated and well trained, but also morally grounded. There is no champion without fair play, it is precisely that which enables an athlete to compete on the field and what makes a champion. The principle of Olympic Solidarity has been part of the International Olympic Committee since 1961 and has provided support for national committees in need of assistance. Humanity, a willingness to assist, support for the weak – these are certainly characteris-


tics possessed by a significant number of our elite athletes. Is there a direct connection between education or experiencing reality; between sport and humanity? - An athlete is indeed a specific figure. In almost all of his parts he must have considerable human capacity in order to achieve results. For that reason humane qualities are very common among athletes. I really want to give people the opportunity to realise their dreams, as I realised mine. I at least want to help some child in the world to start thinking that everything in life can be possible if you believe and try hard enough. Your humanitarian work is a long-term, serious and unselfish endeavour. There is an amazing sentence from father Mitrofana of Chilandar Monastery, who says: Yours is only that which you give to others. Tell us something about your own commitment to dealing with charity work so intensively. - I was born in a beautiful country, grew up in a mixed nationality community, where I was not aware of any differences, and that’s also how I was raised. The collapse of our country really hit me hard, especially because the children suffered the most. Entire generations had their childhoods stolen and were forced to grow up overnight. Already at that time I started with basketball camps, various activities, seeking to bring them, even just for a day or two, a normal life situation. Then that work shaped to become the Foundation, which my wife and I founded, and we will soon open the first building we have managed to construct for displaced persons and refugees. That is the first of four residential buildings that we will construct in Belgrade. I deeply believe that we cannot move forward as a society without looking around and providing everybody with at least the opportunity for a normal life. People often ask me whether I am happy. Yes, I am happy, surrounded by my family, with a job I love, friends, but I’m not satisfied in an environment that often does not have even that basic potential – the possibility to live. Shaped by destiny or individual energies, our lives are all very different. What is it that has determined your life and made it just the way it is? These are often decisions, elections, meetings, people, beliefs, events... How did that work for you? - My life has been marked by sport. When I go back to my childhood, sport is everywhere. Every second of free time I spent on various pitches or courts, from basketball, to handball, through volleyball to football. I organised various com-

petitions, considered being a goalkeeper and ended up in basketball. We all experience that moment of enlightenment in childhood, when we feel exactly what it is we want do in life, what we will be when we grow up. Those who recognise that moment and consistently follow it by doing what they love, sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously, can only achieve excellent results. To what extent are athletes generally ambassadors of their country; is that an additional burden, given the specific type of responsibility? - We are all aware of how much our true ambassadors are athletes, of course as well as people from the arts and science. This is the most positive thing we can offer to the world. Is that a burden? No, I know – it is a pleasure. I see Novak Đoković and I recognise that feeling in him – that in one ceremonious moment he is representing his family, friends, neighbours, the whole country... The Times recently published its list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Novak is ranked 14th and the number one, if I remember correctly, is a basketball player, while sportsmen in general dominate. How do you see that? - The preponderance of that list is, unfortunately, unrealistic. Those could be the most famous people or the most successful, but not also the most influential. Real influence is only with politics. Athletes reach that list like an ikebana and then you can see when someone needs to be found on it... What we believe in pretty much defines us as humans. And here I don’t mean only religious affiliations. What is it that you manage to believe in, after the devaluation of many values and despite all the disappointments? - I believe in goodness, in love. I believe that all religions in their original form offer a good route for life. Their interpretation often causes problems, but not their original teachings. As such, we were so lucky to live in the time of Patriarch Pavle. I met him personally and I remember well when he said that none of us chooses where to be born, in Orthodoxy, Catholicism or Islam, but we all have one choice – to be human. That is the only right.

VLADE DIVAC, PREDSEDNIk OLIMPIjSkOG kOMITETA SRBIjE

KVALITET ZA MEDALJE Po rezultatima postignutim u poslednjih nekoliko godina, izdvajaju se sportisti koje možemo da smatramo i za naše favorite na predstojećim Olimpijskim igrama. Međutim, izdvajanjem tih imena uveren sam da bismo vršili dodatni pritisak na naše sportiste, što nikako ne želimo. Sportistima treba ostaviti da uživaju u sportu i samom učešću na Igrama, a mi znamo da su oni kvalitet za medalje. U svim razgovorima s našim olimpijcima insistirao sam na tom uživanju u igri. Samo ako uživate u nečemu što radite, vaši rezultati mogu biti vrhunski.

D

ok Olimpijski sat preko puta hotela „Moskva“ otkucava preostale dane do Olimpijskih igara u Londonu, predsednik Olimpijskog komiteta Srbije Vlade Divac poručio je sportistima: „kao neko ko je to već bio, smatram da biti član Olimpijskog tima i predstavljati svoju zemlju na Olimpijskim igrama, čini najveću sportsku čast i priznanje za svakog sportistu.” O njegovoj sportskoj karijeri, humanom i humanitarnom radu, o Olimpijskim igrama koje nas očekuju, o razlici između zlata i srebra, najdražoj medalji, patrijarhu, elementima koji čine vrhunskog sportistu i nikad dokraja istraženom

koeficijentu sreće, razgovarali smo ovih dana u prostorijama Olimpijskog komiteta Srbije. Olimpijskim igrama u Londonu ove godine zaokružuje se značajan jubilej za naš sport – sto godina od prvog učešća naših sportista na Olimpijadi u Stokholmu 1912. godine. Da li je to dodatna motivacija za naše sportiste? - Olimpijske igre su same po sebi najznačajniji događaj u sportu. Najjači motiv za svakog sportistu i jeste učešće na tom vrhunskom takmičenju, pa i rezultat


koji očekuje. Šansa da neko od ovih sportista, uz obeležavanje velikog jubileja, osvoji i stotu, jubilarnu, medalju, mogla bi biti i dodatni motiv. Rukometaši su se nedavno kvalifikovali za Olimpijske igre, imamo takmičara u boksu, predstavnike u tekvondu prvi put, stonoteniseri su se takođe izborili za plasman... Ako do kraja kvalifikacionog perioda i odbojkaši i odbojkašice izbore plasman, u Londonu ćemo imati više od sto članova našeg tima, što je sasvim dobro. Olimpijski komitet Srbije nastavlja tradiciju započetu osnivanjem Srpskog olimpijskog kluba, 23. februara 1910. godine. Imajući u vidu pređeni put, da li u sportu postoje bolja i lošija vremena? Koliko se tokom godina menjao način pomoći i podrške našem vrhunskom sportu? - U istoriji našeg olimpijskog sporta dugoj sto godina bilo je različitih perioda. Period između dva rata i onaj posle Drugog svetskog rata su specifični, negde pre naših rođenja, šezdesetih godina počeli su da pristižu prvi pravi rezultati za naš Olimpijski komitet. U tom nekom čitanju prošlosti svakako se izdvaja i vreme sankcija za jugoslovenske sportiste, koje je počelo 1992. godine. To pamtim kao veliki udarac sportu uopšte, jer ma koliko bismo mi hteli da učestvujemo i da se borimo – što je suština sporta, to nam je političkom odlukom bilo uskraćeno. To je za mene velika mrlja koju Olimpijski pokret ima u svojoj istoriji, ali, evo, svi se borimo da se tako nešto više ne ponovi. I ja sam se prihvatio da budem predsednik Olimpijskog komiteta Srbije dobrim delom upravo zbog tih razloga. Kakav je, po Vašem mišljenju, stepen podrške države i društva našem olimpijskom timu u ovom trenutku? - U poslednje vreme veoma sam zadovoljan tom podrškom. Država je

očigledno prepoznala rad Olimpijskog komiteta Srbije kao institucije koja funkcioniše kao servis sportista, i svi programi koje smo napravili pre nekoliko godina za naše olimpijce ispraćeni su. To nam daje nadu da će naši sportisti napraviti dobar rezultat, jer smo zajedno izašli u susret svim zahtevima. Sistem treninga i priprema sportista donekle je sličan svuda u svetu. Sa razvojem civilizacije kojoj pripadamo u većini zemalja izjednačili su se uslovi koji se nude sportistima. Činjenica je da i danas pobeđuju„najbolji među najboljima“, ako tako možemo da kažemo. Šta je to što sada određuje vrhunske sportiste? Kakav je tu odnos između fizičke i psihičke pripremljenosti, motivacije i „stanja srca“? - Uslovi u kojima sportisti rade i treniraju menjaju se tokom godina. Ranije nismo imali probleme sa dopingom, ili su bili manje zastupljeni nego što je to slučaj danas. Pored dobro oblikovanih i usklađenih treninga, psihičke pripremljenosti, veoma je bitna i edukacija. Sportisti moraju da znaju šta je to što im se nudi. Nažalost, ima dosta ljudi oko sportiste koji gledaju neke svoje interese. Mislim na razne menadžere, čak i neke trenere, koji ne biraju sredstva da bi došli do rezultata. Sportistu doživljavaju kao mehanizam, mašinu u toj trci, a ne kao ljudsko biće. Mi se snažno borimo za to da sportista bude edukovan u tom smislu, da zna šta je to što mu se nudi, šta uzima, jer se već u masi slučajeva događalo da kada se naprave analize, i kada se dokaže da je sportista pod dopingom, on sam nema predstavu o tome da je dopingovan, niti šta je uzeo. Pitali ste me šta je to što određuje vrhunskog sportistu: kažem da je to edukacija, fizička i psihička pripremljenost, srčanost svakako, ali često i komadić sreće koji prevagne između zlata i srebra kod dvojice dobro pripremljenih sportista. Dakle, i sreća je ponekad bitan faktor.

Kao sportista poneli ste sve najznačajnije medalje koje postoje u vrhunskom sportu. Koja Vam je najdraža? - Svaka medalja je veliko zadovoljstvo. Ona je nagrada za uloženi trud, potvrda da ste na pravom putu. Ima onih medalja za koje smo emotivno vezani, ima značajnih po samom takmičenju, a ja ću među svima njima da izdvojim medalju koja nije toliko bitna rangirajući značaj takmičenja, ali je meni izuzetno draga. Bili smo prva ekipa koja je posle pomenutih sankcija nastupila na evropskom takmičenju i vratili smo se sa zlatnom medaljom. Mislim da smo shvatili šta smo tada uradili tek kada smo se vratili kući. To je bio prvi spontani doček sportista, stotine hiljada ljudi su nas sačekivale već od aerodroma, pa sve do centra Beograda. To nije bila samo medalja, to je onaj posebni dodatak emocije koji čini nešto više i veće od igre. Kada govorimo o medaljama, kolika je za sportistu razlika u doživljaju između zlata i srebra? - Mentalitet sportiste je takav da uvek od sebe traži više, brže i bolje. kada dođe do medalja, ako smo svesni da smo sve što smo mogli da uradimo – uradili, onda je i srebro sasvim dobro, a ako smo svesni da smo nešto propustili, onda nikako nije. Mnogo je teško živeti posle s tom vrstom hipoteke. Viteška borba na sportskom terenu oduvek je u osnovi sporta. Vrhunskog sportistu određuje i sistem moralnih normi, fer pleja... Koliko „poštena igra“ danas postoji na sportskim terenima? - Dosta, pogotovo u vrhunskom sportu. Biti šampion, pravi, znači biti posvećen, utreniran, ali i moralno utemeljen. Ne postoji šampion bez fer pleja, upravo ga to umeće borbe na sportskom terenu i čini šampionom. U okviru Međunarodnog olimpijskog komiteta od 1961. godine postoji i Olimpijska solidarnost, podrška nacionalnim komitetima kojima je pomoć potrebna. Humanost, spremnost za pomoć, podršku slabijima – odlike su zaista znatnog broja naših vrhunskih sportista. Da li to postoji direktna veza u vaspitanju ili doživljaju stvarnosti – između sporta i humanosti? - Sportista i jeste specifična ličnost. U skoro svim njegovim delovima moramo imati prilične ljudske kapacitete da bismo došli do nekih rezultata. Samim tim je i humanost veoma zastupljena među sportistima. ja zaista želim da ljudima pružim mogućnost da ostvare svoje snove, onako kako sam ih ja ostvario. Želim da bar nekom detetu na svetu pomognem da počne da razmišlja kako je sve u životu moguće ako dovoljno čvrsto veruje i nastoji. Vaš humanitarni rad je dugogodišnji, ozbiljan i nesebičan. Postoji neverovatna rečenica oca Mitrofana iz Hilandara koja kaže: Tvoje je samo ono što daš drugima. Recite nam nešto o sopstvenom opredeljenju da se tako

intenzivno bavite humanitarnim radom. - Rođen sam u jednoj prelepoj zemlji, odrastao u mešovitoj nacionalnoj sredini, gde nisam bio svestan nikakvih razlika, tako sam bio i vaspitavan. Raspad te naše zemlje veoma me pogodio, posebno zbog toga što su deca najviše stradala. Čitave generacije izgubile su detinjstvo, odrastale su preko noći. Već u to vreme sam počeo sa košarkaškim kampovima, različitim akcijama, nastojeći da ih bar na dan-dva dovedem u situaciju normalnog života. Onda se taj rad uobličio u Fondaciju koju smo osnovali moja supruga i ja, i ovih dana otvaramo prvu zgradu koju smo uspeli da podignemo za raseljena i izbegla lica. To je prvi od četiri stambena objekta koje ćemo podići u Beogradu. Duboko verujem u to da ne možemo kao društvo da krenemo napred a da se ne osvrnemo oko sebe i svim ljudima bar obezbedimo mogućnost za normalan život. Često me pitaju da li sam srećan. jesam, srećan sam, okružen svojom porodicom, poslom koji volim, prijateljima, ali nisam zadovoljan u okolini koja često nema ni taj osnovni potencijal – mogućnost za život. Sudbinom određeni ili pojedinačnim energijama oblikovani, naši životi se sasvim razlikuju. Šta je to što je odredilo Vaš život, što ga je učinilo baš ovakvim kakav jeste? Često su to odluke, izbori, susreti, ljudi, uverenja, događaji... Kako je to išlo kod Vas? - Moj život je obeležio sport. kada se vratim u detinjstvo, svuda je sport. Svaki sekund slobodnog vremena provodio sam na raznim terenima, od košarke, odbojke preko rukometa, do fudbala. Organizovao sam razna takmičenja, razmišljao da budem golman, a završio u košarci. Svima nam se dogodi taj trenutak prosvetljenja u detinjstvu, kada tačno osetimo šta je to čime želimo da se bavimo u životu, šta ćemo biti kad porastemo. Onaj ko taj trenutak prepozna i dosledno ga sledi, nekad svesno, nekad nesvesno, radeći to što voli, jedini može i da postigne vrhunski rezultat. Koliko su sportisti generalno ambasadori svoje zemlje? Da li je to i dodatno opterećenje, imajući u vidu specifičnu vrstu odgovornosti? - Svi smo svesni toga koliko su nam istinski ambasadori sportisti, naravno i ljudi iz umetnosti, nauke. To je ono najpozitivnije što možemo da ponudimo svetu. Da li je to opterećenje? Ne znam – to je zadovoljstvo. Gledam Novaka Đokovića i kod njega prepoznajem taj osećaj – da u tom svečanom trenutku predstavlja svoju porodicu, prijatelje, komšiluk, celu zemlju… Nedavno je objavljena Tajmova lista sa imenima sto najuticajnijih ljudi na svetu, Novak je na 14. mestu, prvi je, ako se ne varam, košarkaš, a sportisti generalno preovlađuju. Kako Vi to čitate? - Prevaga sa te liste je, nažalost, nerealna. Mogli bi to da budu najpoznatiji ljudi, najuspešniji, ali ne i najuticajniji. Istinski uticaj ima samo politika. Sportisti mu tu pre dođu kao ikebana, vide se onda kada nekome treba da se tu nađu… To u šta verujemo prilično nas određuje kao ljude. Ne mislim pri tom samo na religijska opredeljenja. Šta je to u šta Vi posle devalvacije mnogih vrednosti, posle svih razočarenja – uspevate da verujete? - Verujem u dobrotu, u ljubav. Verujem i u to da sve religije, izvorne, nude dobar put za život. Njihova tumačenja često prave probleme, a ne njihova izvorna učenja. Bili smo te sreće da živimo u vreme patrijarha Pavla, ja sam ga i lično upoznao, i dobro sam zapamtio kada je govorio da niko od nas nije birao gde će da se rodi, u pravoslavlju, katolicizmu, islamu, ali je jedini izbor koji imamo – da budemo ljudi. To je jedino pravo. Dragana Marković fotografije: Duška Stefanović i arhiv ok Srbije

P

rince Mihailo Obrenović ruled the Principality of Serbia twice (from 1839 to 1842 and from 1860 to 1868). His father, Prince Miloš, abdicated in 1839 and went to Wallachia, taking with him his son Mihailo. However, Mihailo soon returned to Serbia to take the throne after the death of his brother Milan and was duly crowned. Restless and unstable, he passed the period of his first reign fighting over which city would be the capital, Kragujevac or Belgrade, and in dynastic-party conflicts between the C onstitutionalists (Karađorđević faithful) and the Obrenović loyalists. These conflicts came to an end in 1842 when the Constitutionalists, led by Toma Vučić Perišić, had Prince Mihailo expelled from Serbia.

Travelling through Europe, prior to departure from Vienna to St. Petersburg, and visiting the home of Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, the great reformer of the Serbian language, Mihailo wrote in the scrapbook of Vuk’s daughter Mina on 19th/31st October 1847: “Every native who enjoys the love of your father can flatter himself justly, as his love towards his homeland and people is his first and most important duty…”

TWO EXILED PRINCES – FATHER & SON Mihailo was the second son of Prince Miloš and Princess Ljubica. Born in Kragujevac on 16th September 1823 in the Colourful guest house, where Princess Ljubica lived with her children, he grew up beside his mother, with whom he was very close. His mother cooed Naka. From her he inherited his modesty, moderation and seriousness. He rarely saw his father, which left its mark on the shaping of his personality. The exiled Prince Mihailo lived in nearby Zemun and Banat until the death of his mother, Princess Ljubica, in 1843. Following his mother’s demise, the Prince changed from being a cheerful young man into a melancholic adult who was suspicious of everyone. With Aleksandar Karađorđević having been appointed Duke of Serbia, Prince Mihailo travelled to Vienna to be with his father and there he settled, convinced that a return to the throne was impossible. Thus the two exiled princes, father and son, spent more time together abroad than they had in Serbia and became friends, working on the return of the Obrenovićs to the throne. However, their efforts were in vain. The exile lasted 16 years;


the exiled Prince Mihailo left at the age of 19 and returned to Serbia at 35 years old. Thanks to his father’s wealth, Prince Mihailo spent most of his life of exile travelling to European countries, which enabled him to familiarise himself with European society, many rulers and prominent public figures in Europe. This new environment and new influences complemented his education and contributed to the forming of his political positions on how to strengthen the national and cultural identity, which would leave a visible trace on his second reign when he returned to his homeland.

SECOND REIGN Every attempt of the two exiled princes to return to the throne was thwarted until the St. Andrew’s Day Assembly of 1858, which saw Prince Alexander Karađorđević toppled and cleared the way for Prince Miloš to return to the throne. With him, Prince Mihailo also returned and eventually succeeded his father in 1860, his 37th year. During his second reign he primarily tried to realise his father’s idea of war with the Turks. Strengthening state rule and legislation was the second important point of his programme, as he stated during his Coronation when taking the throne. Of the many important results of his policies, we will mention only the creation of the

Moniment to Prince Mihailo, postcard First Balkan Alliance. The war with the Turks was delayed, but pressure was constantly exerted on the Ottoman Porte (central government), particularly following the bombing of Belgrade (1862), and ultimately city defensive fortifications were ceded to Serbia in Užice and Soko, Belgrade, Šabac, Smederevo and Kladovo. There was no longer a vizier of the Turkish Army in Serbia, while the Turkish flags flying alongside the Serbian ones along city walls were the only sign of the Sultan’s sovereignty. As a sign of gratitude, the prince visited the sultan in Istanbul.

PRINCE’S LOVE Mihailo was tall and slim, with big chestnut brown eyes, a deep voice and a measured seriousness in all dealings. He was also a gentle man who loved the truth. His fate as the prince imposed worries and obligations on him from his earliest days. Handsome, educated and respected, the prince traveller and poet was the first to sing quite a few songs while he travelled Europe in search of love. One of the most beautiful old town songs, Why do my thoughts fight each other, was first sung by Prince Mihailo and, according to the latest discoveries, was dedicated to the young Kleopatra Karađorđević, sister of future Ser bian king Petar I Karađorđević. As a young man, the prince experienced a terrible love affair with seventeen-year-old German girl Mary Berghaus. That romance resulted in Mihailo gaining an illegitimate son, William - Velimir Teodorović (1849-1898), who he educated and watched over, but with restraint and without displaying any emotion, which, of course, left its mark on his son. Velimir became a great Serb and a great benefactor, bequeathing all of his property to the Serbian state after his death – through the

Foundation Velimirijanum. Velimir was buried in Belgrade’s New Cemetery. Thanks to his father’s wealth, the handsome and noble Prince Mihailo was a welcome guest at many elite parties and even balls staged by Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph. It was at a New Year’s ball in Schönbrunn, organised by Archduchess Sofia, that Prince Mihailo met Countess Júlia Hunyady de Kéthely, the daughter of Count Ferenc Hunyady de Kéthely, and fell in love. In May 1853 the Prince, having previously sought the blessing of her father, asked for Júlia’s hand in marriage. Knez Miloš was reluctant to accept that his son would marry a nonbeliever, but Mihailo was in love and did not mind that his betrothed was Catholic and of foreign origin. They were wed at the Russian chapel in Vienna on 1st August 1853. In addition to Prince Miloš, who had travelled to the wedding from Bucharest, the nuptials were attended by numerous government officials and diplomats. The newlyweds spent the first three years of marriage living in Vienna, then the prince fulfilled his wife’s wishes by purchasing

the Ivanka estate near Bratislava. There they lived until returning to Serbia. The princess was well educated, liked the works of Liszt and Goethe, and enjoyed theatres and balls. During the second reign of Prince Mihailo social life in Belgrade and the royal court changed considerably. With the princess’s support, he built a new palace, which he never moved in to, but he created a European court out of the Prince Miloš’s old residence. New court rules were introduced which everybody had to respect, as were rules of etiquette both in the court and in dealings in society. Court balls, which the prince and princess orchestrated, became much more refined and regal. However, his entire life at court was an embroidery of female influence and intrigue. Princess Júlia had the greatest influence over the Prince’s court. After seven years living together in Europe before arriving in Serbia, despite all of the Prince’s efforts to create a European city of Belgrade, Princess Júlia was in this unbearable country – this prison – and she became unhappier, seeking solace in the letters

of Duke von Arenberg. In addition to not being favoured because she was a foreigner, part of the court camarilla was also against her, led by Anka Obrenović Konstantinović, Mihailo’s first cousin and daughter of his father’s brother. Through deftly court intrigue the Prince learned of the infidelity of his wife, who had been in a sureptitious relationship with Duke von Arenberg for seven years. Anastas Jovanović, the prince’s court administrator and Serbia’s first Serbian lithographer and photographer, discreetly planted one of the princess’s letters to Duke von Arenberg, but the prince, having read the letter, nevertheless ordered Anastas to send it to the designated address. Despite such reactions, the prince was hugely disappointed in the princess. Offended and humiliated, he wanted to separate from the princess, but in a dignified manner, without scandals and lawyers. In July 1865 he escorted the Princess to the Sava Port for her send off to Vienna and ensured no one knew that it would be their final parting. He bought her a palace in Vienna for 100,000 ducats, with an annual allow-

ance of 5,000 ducats. Although there was a rift, the legal marriage was not annulled. After the princess’s departure, the prince grieved and suffered, while beside him was his first cousin Anka Obrenović, whose influence over the court and the prince grew stronger and stronger. Júlia’s infidelity left the young prince emotionally broken. A lonely life in the palace, strolling around Topčider Hill and playing billiards with friends could not compensate for the gap in the Duke’s heart for very long. Anka had fallen in love with Prince Mihailo, her first cousin, as a young girl, but that was quickly curtailed by her mother Tomanija. After Júlia’s departure, though, she was obsessed with the idea of Mihailo marrying her daughter Katarina. Prince Mihailo and Katarina were relatives in the fifth degree (the Serbian Orthodox Church allowed marriage only from the sixth degree) and, because of inbreeding, many were opposed to that tragic and, for both of them, fatal relationship. However, the prince decided to take Katarina, expecting to end the marriage with Júlia and gain

Kleopatra Karađorđević

the consent of the Metropolitan to bless a new marriage. Three days before his murder, the prince got engaged to Katarina. During a walk in Topčider Forest on 29th May/10th June 1868, Prince Mihailo and Anka were both murdered, with Anka seemingly trying to protect the prince with her body. Katarina was wounded and her life would continue to be followed by tragedy and scandal. VERSE, ANGEL & HEART OF RUBY Mihailo gave Kleopatra verses that live on in the nation. He gave the young Katarina a Viennese medallion in flowers with a cross of sapphires, anchors of emeralds and a heart of a ruby surrounded by diamonds – the symbol of faith, hope and love. The medallion is kept in the Museum of the City of Belgrade. He gave the beautiful German lady Marija his son – a great benefactor. The last of the prince’s gifts from his beloved Júlia was a tombstone, which consists of a base, sarcophagus and bronze statues of an angel above angels - St. Archangel

Michael (Mihailo). Prince Mihailo is buried alongside his father in Belgrade’s Saborna cathedral Church. After his death Mihailo left behind, among other things, numerous contributions to individuals and institutions of culture and health – and 6500 ducats for the Belgrade Theatre. Prince Mihailo was a favourite among Belgraders. They gave his name to the most beautiful street in Belgrade, from Terazije to Kalemegdan, Knez Mihaila, and in front of the National Theatre and the National Museum, not far from the former Stambol Gate, stands the monument to Prince Mihailo, Erected in 1882.The monument is a work of Italian sculptor Enrico Pazzi and represents the first monumental equestrian statue in the country. Its basic theme is the liberation of Serbia from Ottoman rule, with the prince’s outstretched arm pointing to Serb regions yet to be liberated. JoVAnKA VeSelinoVić olgA lATinČić

DINASTIČKE PRIČE | MIHAILO OBRENOVIć (KRAGUJEVAC, 1823 – BEOGRAD, 1868)

KNEZ KOGA JE BEOGRAD VOLEO Lutajući Evropom, pred polazak iz Beča u Petrograd, gostujući u domu Vuka Stefanovića Karadžića, reformatora srpskog jezika, Mihailo je u spomenar Vukove kćeri Mine, 19/31. oktobra 1847, napisao: „Svaki domorodac Vašeg oca ljubav uživajući, može sebi pravedno laskati, da mu je prema domovine i naroda svoga ljubov prvi i najglavniji zadatak.“

K

nez Mihailo Obrenović dva puta je vladao Kneževinom Srbijom (1839 –1842. i 1860– 1868). Njegov otac knez Miloš abdicirao je 1839. godine i poveo sa sobom u Vlašku i sina Mihaila. Međutim, Mihailo se ubrzo posle smrti svoga brata Milana vraća u Srbiju na presto i biva miropomazan. Nemirno i nestabilno vreme njegove prve vladavine proteklo je u borbi oko prestonice, Kragujevac ili Beograd, i u dinastijskostranačkim sukobima između ustavobranitelja (karađorđevićevaca) i obrenovićevaca. Ti sukobi završeni su tako što su godine 1842. ustavobranitelji na čelu sa Tomom Vučićem Perišićem proterali kneza Mihaila iz Srbije. DVA IZGNANA KNEZA – OTAC I SIN Mihailo je drugi sin kneza Miloša i kneginje Ljubice. Rođen je u Kragujevcu 16. septembra 1823. godine, u Šarenom konaku, u kom je živela kneginja Ljubica sa decom. Rastao je pored majke, s kojom je bio veoma blizak. Majci je tepao Naka. Od nje je nasledio skromnost, umerenost i ozbiljnost. Oca je retko viđao, što je ostavilo traga na formiranju njegove ličnosti . Prognani knez Mihailo živeo je u Zemunu i Banatu sve do smrti svoje majke, kneginje Ljubice, 1843. godine. Posle majčine smrti knez je od veselog mladića postao melanholik i nepoverljiv prema svima. Pošto je u Srbiji za kneza izabran Aleksandar Karađorđević, knez Mihailo je, uveren da je povratak na presto nemoguć, otišao kod oca u Beč i tu se nastanio. Tako su dva izgnana kneza, otac i sin, proveli u inostranstvu zajedno više vremena nego u Srbiji, zbližili se i radili na ponovnom vraćanju Obrenovića na presto, ali je njihov napor bio uzaludan. Progonstvo je trajalo 16 godina. Prognani knez Mihailo otišao je sa 19, a vratio se u Srbiju sa 35 godina. Zahvaljujući bogatstvu svoga oca knez Mihailo je

kao prognanik veći deo života proveo u putovanjima po evropskim državama, što mu je omogućilo da upozna evropsko društvo, mnoge vladare i istaknute ličnosti iz javnog života Evrope. Novo okruženje i novi uticaji upotpunili su njegovo obrazovanje i doprineli da izgradi svoje političke stavove, da ojača nacionalno-kulturni identitet, što će, kada se bude vratio u domovinu, ostaviti vidan trag u njegovoj vladavini. DRUGA VLADAVINA Svi pokušaji dva izgnana kneza da se vrate na presto bili su bezuspešni sve do Svetoandrejske skupštine, 1858. godine, koja je srušila kneza Aleksandra Karađorđevića i vratila na presto kneza Miloša. S njim se vratio i knez Mihailo, koji je oca nasledio 1860. godine, u svojoj 37. godini. Tokom svoje druge vladavine nastojao je da pre svega ostvari očevu zamisao, a to je rat s Turcima. Jačanje državne vlasti i jačanje zakonitosti bila je druga bitna tačka njegovog programa, što je istakao u svojoj Proklamaciji stupajući na presto. Od značajnijih rezultata njegove politike pomenućemo stvaranje Prvog balkanskog saveza. Rat s Turcima je odlagao, ali je pritisak na Portu stalno vršen, naročito posle bombardovanja Beograda (1862), te su na kraju Srbiji ustupljena gradska utvrđenja: Užice i Soko, Beograd, Šabac, Smederevo i Kladovo. U Srbiji više nije bilo vezira i turske vojske, a kao znak sultanovog suvereniteta stajala je na gradskim bedemima, uz srpsku, i turska zastava. U znak zahvalnosti knez je posetio sultana u Carigradu. KNEŽEVE LJUBAVI Mihailo je bio visok, suvonjav, krupnih kestenjastih očiju, krupna glasa, odmerena hoda, u ophođenju ozbiljan, ali blag čovek, koji je voleo istinu. Sudbina je knezu nametnula brige i obaveze već od najmlađih dana. Lep, obrazovan, uvažavan,

knez lutalica i pesnik, putujući Evropom i tražeći ljubav, ispevao je nekoliko pesama. Jednu od najlepših starogradskih pesama Što se bore misli moje ispevao je knez Mihailo, a prema najnovijim otkrićima, bila je posvećena mladoj Kleopatri Karađorđević, rođenoj sestri budućeg kralja Srbije Petra I Karađorđevića. Kao mladić, knez je doživeo strasnu ljubav sa sedamnaestogodišnjom Nemicom Marijom Berghaus. Iz te romanse Mihailo je imao i vanbračnog sina Viljema – Velimira Teodorovića (1849–1898), koga je školovao i pazio, ali sa uzdržanošću u pokazivanju bilo kakvih emocija, što je, svakako, ostavilo trag na sinu. Velimir je postao veliki Srbin i veliki dobrotvor, ostavivši posle smrti sve svoje imanje srpskoj državi – Zadužbinu Velimirijanum. Velimir je sahranjen na Novom groblju u Beogradu. Zahvaljujući očevom bogatstvu, stasiti i otmeni knez Mihailo bio je rado viđen gost na mnogim elitnim zabavama, čak i na balovima koje je priređivao car Franjo Josif. Na novogodišnjem balu u Šenbrunu, koji je priredila nadvojvotkinja Sofija, knez Mihailo upoznao je Juliju Hunjadi, kćer grofa Ferenca Hunjadija Ketelija, i zaljubio se u nju. U maju 1853. knez je, prethodno dobivši blagoslov svoga oca, isprosio Julijinu ruku. Knez Miloš je teško prihvatio da mu sin oženi inoverku, ali zaljubljenom Mihailu nije smetalo što mu je izabranica stranog porekla i katolkinja. Venčali su se u ruskoj kapeli u Beču, 1. avgusta 1853. godine. Venčanju su, pored kneza Miloša, koji je na svadbu došao iz Bukurešta, prisustvovali brojni državni zvaničnici i diplomate. Prve tri godine mladenci su živeli u Beču, a zatim je knez ispunio želju svojoj supruzi i kupio imanje Ivanku kod Požuna. Tu su živeli sve do povratka u Srbiju. Kneginja je bila obrazovana, volela je Lista i Getea, pozorišta i balove. Tokom druge vladavine kneza Mihaila društveni život u Beogradu i na dvoru znatno se promenio.


Uz kneginjinu podršku, sagradio je novi dvor, u koji se nije uselio, ali je od starog Konaka kneza Miloša stvorio evropski dvor. Uvedena su nova dvorska pravila, koja su morali svi da poštuju, takođe etikeciju kako na dvoru tako i u ophođenju u društvu. Balovi na dvoru, koje su knez i kneginja priređivali, postali su mnogo otmeniji i gospodstveniji. Međutim, čitav život na dvoru bio je protkan ženskim uticajima i intrigama. Najveći uticaj na kneževom dvoru imala je kneginja Julija. Posle sedam godina zajedničkog života u Evropi, došavši u Srbiju, uz sav knežev trud u stvaranju evropskog grada od Beograda, kneginja Julija je u toj nesnosnoj zemlji – tamnici bivala sve nesrećnija i tražila utehu u pismima grofa fon Arenberga. Pored toga što nije bila omiljena, jer je bila strankinja, protiv nje je bio i deo dvorske kamarile, predvođen Ankom Obrenović Konstantinović, kneževom sestrom od strica. Spretnom dvorskom intrigom knez je saznao za neverstvo svoje supruge, koja je sedam godina bila u vezi sa grofom Arenbergom. Anastas Jovanović, knežev dvoroupravitelj, inače prvi srpski litograf, diskretno je podmetnuo jedno kneginjino pismo upućeno grofu Arenbergu, ali je knez, pročitavši pismo, naredio Anastasu da ga pošalje na naznačenu adresu. Uprkos takvoj reakciji, kneževo razočaranje u kneginju bilo je ogromno. Uvređen i ponižen, želeo je da se raziđe s kneginjom, ali na dostojanstven način, bez skandala i advokata. U julu 1865. ispratio je kneginju u Beč sa Savskog pristaništa a da niko nije znao da je to njihov konačni rastanak. Kupio joj je palatu u Beču od 100.000 dukata, sa godišnjom apanažom od 5.000 dukata. Iako je došlo do razlaza, zakonski brak nije poništen. Posle kneginjinog odlaska, knez je tugovao i pobolevao, a pored njega je bdela sestra od strica Anka Obrenović, čiji je uticaj i na dvor i na kneza sve više jačao. Julijino neverstvo je mladog kneza emotivno slomilo. Osamljen život u dvoru, šetnje Topčiderom i bilijar sa prijateljima nisu zadugo mogli da nadomeste prazninu u kneževom srcu. Anka je još kao mlada devojka bila zaljubljena u kneza Mihaila, svoga brata od strica, ali je to na vreme prekinula njena majka Tomanija. Posle Julijinog odlaska, biva opsednuta idejom da za njega uda svoju ćerku Katarinu. Knez Mihailo i Katarina bili su u petom kolenu srodstva (Srpska pravoslavna crkva dopuštala je brak tek od šestog kolena), i zbog rodoskvrnjenja, mnogi su bili protiv te tragične i za njih oboje kobne veze. Međutim, knez je odlučio da uzme Katarinu, očekujući da okonča brak s Julijom i privoli mitropolita za blagoslov novom braku. Tri dana uoči ubistva knez se verio s Katarinom. Za vreme šetnje u Topčideru, 29. maja / 10. juna 1868. godine, ubijeni su knez Mihailo i Anka, koja

Prince Mihailo, photograph by Anastas Jovanović je svojim telom pokušala da zaštiti kneza. Katarina je ranjena, njen život će i dalje biti praćen i tragedijama i skandalima. STIH, ANĐEO I SRCE OD RUBINA Mihailo je Kleopatri poklonio stihove koji žive u narodu. Mladoj Katarini poklonio je bečki medaljon u cveću sa krstom od safira, lengerom od smaragda i srcem od rubina okruženog dijamantima – simbolom vere, nade i ljubavi. Taj medaljon čuva se u Muzeju grada Beograda. Lepa Nemica Marija poklonila mu je sina – velikog dobrotvora. Poslednji dar knezu od voljene Julije bio je nadgrobni spomenik koji se sastoji od postolja, sarkofaga i bronzane statue anđela nad anđelima – Svetog arhanđela Mihaila. Knez Mihailo sahranjen je uz oca, u Sabornoj crkvi u Beogradu.

Posle smrti, između ostalog, ostavio je pored brojnih priloga pojedincima i ustanovama kulture i zdravstva, Beogradskom pozorištu – 6.500 dukata cesarskih. Beograđanima je knez Mihailo bio miljenik. Najlepšoj ulici u Beogradu, od Terazija do Kalemegdana, dali su ime kneza Mihaila, a ispred Narodnog pozorišta i Narodnog muzeja, nedaleko od nekadašnje Stambol kapije, nalazi se Spomenik knezu, podignut 1882. Spomenik je delo italijanskog vajara Enrika Pacija i predstavlja prvi monumentalni konjanički spomenik kod nas. Njegova osnovna ideja je oslobođenje Srbije od turske vlasti. Kneževa ispružena ruka pokazivala je na još neoslobođene srpske krajeve. JoVAnKA VeSelinoVić olgA lATinČić

NAME AS A LEGACY Everything changes in the world, but surely nowhere as fast as with us. The streets and buildings change and disappear, and along with them the old society of Belgrade and the people of old Belgrade who made up that society.” This is how Belgrade was described by its chronicler Stevan Sremac in the early 20th century.

I

t was a beautiful august morning when two compositions set off for niš from Belgrade’s decorated railway station. that 23rd august 1884 is a day recorded in the history of Serbia, because the rail service linked the capital of the young kingdom with niš, which was considered the second capital. there was no record, however, of the exact date some five years earlier when a young man headed in the same direction to become a high school teacher in niš. It would later be revealed that, in addition to the rail tracks, he would also connect the two cities in a special way: with his life, love and literary works. as he departed his luggage contained only clothes and books, but after thirteen years he returned to the city of his youth as distinguished teacher Stevan Sremac, carrying with him plenty of material. He would use that material to become one of the most popular Serbian writers. Cities oF Childhood and adolesCenCe Stevan Sremac was born in Senta in 1855. although he signed his first historical narrative works under the pseudonym Senćanin, he never returned to his hometown, but he loved it. He would later recall his childhood vividly, especially the mulberry tree he would often sit on, eating mulberries and reading the novel “the count of monte cristo.” His mother Katarina was one of nine daughters of Filip Djordjević, a wealthy, educated and capable Senta trader. She married out of turn in terms of age as the first of the sisters and, despite the protestations of her father, was wed to adam Sremac, a handsome but lowly tailor who lived in the backyard of the family house. She died when their first-born, Stevan, was just three years old. He and his brothers were accepted by the aunts, because the father preferred tavern life and playing cards. He died when Stevan was twelve years old. He remembered his father as a dandy, a man dressed as a gentleman who always wore a soft hat on his forehead, lopsided. although his father had no great influence on his upbringing, tuition and education, there was something in his appearance and behaviour that, consciously or not, Stevan imitated. He liked to dress nicely, wear a hat, have pointed moustaches and a somewhat proud and dignified posture, but he hated playing cards more than anything. He came to Belgrade from Bačka to live with his uncle, arriving together with his aunt maca and two younger brothers. to a thirteen-year-old who had just finished primary school, the city

Aleksandar Deroko – Memories of Sremac must have looked big and strange, but he took joy in his arrival, though of course not as much as when he returned, much older, after thirteen years of service in the newly liberated Serbian lands. He attributed that feeling to his hero in the story Ideal: “...as today he finds everything magical and dear, all these old acquaintances from the time of his carefree school days! and that blue avala, that Košutnjak, topčider and ada ciganlija, and the wonderful landscape as the most serene and beautiful watercolour, then the rivers Sava and the Danube and the endless Banat plains, which stretched behind the Danube far beyond the church towers of Pančevo! and that wreath of houses arranged as an amphitheatre, like a crescent around the former venice pool, then the Saborna cathedral church! “

Little Stevan with his aunts UnCle, aUthor oF the serBian national anthem at the very top of Knez mihailova Street was once a tavern, “Hajduk veljko,” and beside it was a single-storey house with a passage leading to the backyard. On the ground floor there was the delicatessen of carlo Perollo, a confectioner, merchant and innkeeper of Italian origin, while its one floor was occupied by Jovan Đorđević. this eminent man moved from novi Sad to become head of the national theatre in Belgrade, which had just been built. after having already done much to further the cultural and political life of the Serbian people in vojvodina, he continued his activities in many fields in Belgrade. He was a professor at a higher college and served as minister of education for a short time; he was a teacher of history and geography to King aleksandar Obrenović, a writer, translator and author of several text books; an acting school founder and teacher and the author of verses of the Serbian national anthem. In addition to everything listed, he was also a devoted brother and uncle who had his large family relocated to Belgrade from Senta, Bečkerek and mokrin so he could take care of them. among them was little Stevan, with his brothers Jovan and andreja and aunt marta. It soon transpired that Stevan was

a good student and he successfully completed the First High School, while his uncle enrolled Jovan to become a tinsmith and andreja was destined to become a tailor. eventually all of them became successful in their professions. the uncle proved a genuine role model to his nephew. Sremac, who was also interested in classical and national history, enrolled at the historical and philological department of the Great School to become a historian like his uncle. He was a patriot, a humanist, a devout Orthodox christian, compassionate, an animal lover and, it turned out, a bachelor until his death. Just like Jovan Đorđević, he was a fervent supporter of the Liberals. Following graduation he spent a short while working as a trainee at the ministry of Finance. “crazy Steva”, as Đorđević angrily described him in his diary, refused to be a house tutor in the house of the princely governor, accepting instead the position of teacher in a high school in niš. this decision was significant for Sremac, but even more so for the city of niš and Serbian literature. In the south a world he had not known of until then would open up in front of him - a plethora of original characters, customs and habits. What he failed to sketch or record in words, he would absorb and store in his memory. teaCher and Writer Stevan Sremac taught in the high schools of niš, Pirot and Belgrade until the end of his life. But no matter how gifted a teacher he was or how much love he expressed when conveying patriotism and knowledge to new generations, he would not have been remembered if he had not written. Imitating his uncle, he began writing and publishing historical narratives back in niš. Written in a


formal and slightly archaic language, the stories “from the ancient book” were “wonderful images of nobility and chivalry, beauty and sacrifice” resurrecting vladimir, the king of Duklja, Grand Prefect Časlav, Saint Sava, miloš Obilić, tsar Lazar and dozens of others. the highest authority for Sremac when it came to writing was his classmate Ljubomir nedić, who is considered the father of modern literary criticism in our country. at first he did not dare to admit to him that he wrote, so he wrote under a pseudonym. When nedić discovered it nonetheless, he liked it. at nedić’s requesr, Sremac showed him the manuscript of “Ivko the Quiltmaker’s Feast.” Fearing the reaction, he daren’t return for a whole week and came only on the seventh day, when nedić congratulated him. He soon had the manuscript published in the sequels as “Ivko’s Feast.” all those remembered and sketched characters from niš were brught to life, started speaking a new language and made readers laugh. and they would make them laugh for the whole of the next century, right up to this day. Over the next decade Stevan Sremac was to become our most popular writer. When “Zona Zamfirova” appeared, it became evident that each year spent in niš had paid off for the writer and the citizens of niš. no wonder then that when it was suggested Sremac become an academic one of the proponents wrote that he was “a famous writer of short stories and narratives from the popular life of south-eastern Serbian lands.” tavern reGUlar and aCademiC Strict Jovan Skerlić, the great literary authority of the early 20th century, reproached Sremac in his first serious study about the author for looking at life as a tavern regular, so he labelled him as a writer of “wine stories.” “He” says

“Ball at Elemir “, text and illustrations Skerlić “is a poet of a full jug and a full table” …adding that “...no Serbian work of literature contains as many songs as the literary works of Sremac and one would say that his characters do not stop talking and don’t sing only when they drink and don’t drink only when they sing.” He did admit, however, that Sremac had introduced to our literature “more spirit than any other Serbian writer”. Sremac spent much of his time in taverns not only because he was single, but also because he would eat there. He loved the tavern, as it was always full of life, company, joy. It was often at the tavern table that he would notice some interesting characters and situations, sketching them there, making caricatures, recording how they behaved, the way they spoke, what they thought, what they sang. He used to write down and copy into his notebooks “material”; he would note down anecdotes and interesting life stories, he would make summaries that he would later breathe life into through the pages of his stories. a fellow teacher who was a great lover of money criticised Sremac on one occasion, insisting that such a lifestyle would ensure he left nothing after his death. Sremac told him that he would need nothing after his death and that it would just be enough if he left a bit of his name. He died suddenly, after a short illness, during a summer holiday in Sokobanja. What remained behind was not just the famous name of a writer who did not get to hold his academic speech, but the memory of a good man and the unique works with which he preserved times long since past in Belgrade, niš, Banat, Bačka...

IME KAO OSTAVŠTINA „Sve se u svetu menja, ali valjda nigde tako brzo kao kod nas. I ulice i zgrade menjaju se i iščezavaju, a s njima i staro beogradsko društvo i ljudi starog beogradskog kova koji su to društvo sačinjavali.“ Tako je o Beogradu s početka 20. veka pisao njegov hroničar Stevan Sremac.

B

ilo je lepo avgustovsko jutro kada su sa svečano okićene beogradske železničke stanice prema nišu krenule dve kompozicije. taj 23. avgust 1884. godine upisan je u istoriju Srbije, jer je železnički saobraćaj povezao prestonicu mlade kraljevine i niš, koji je smatran za drugu prestonicu. nije zabeležen tačan datum kada je pet godina ranije u istom pravcu otputovao jedan mladi čovek da postane predavač u niškoj gimnaziji. Biće otkriveno kasnije da je, pored pruge, i on na poseban način povezao ta dva grada: svojim životom, ljubavlju i književnim delom. Kada je odlazio, u prtljagu je imao samo odeću i knjige, posle trinaest godina, u grad svoje mladosti vratio se kao uvaženi profesor Stevan Sremac, noseći sa sobom obilje građe. Iz nje će nastati dela koja će ga učiniti jednim od najpopularnijih srpskih književnika. Gradovi detinjstva i mladosti Stevan Sremac rodio se u Senti 1855. godine. Iako je svoje prve radove, istorijske pripovetke, potpisivao pseudonimom Senćanin, u rodni grad se nikada više nije vratio, ali ga je voleo. Kasnije se živo sećao detinjstva, naročito duda na kojem je često sedeo, jeo dudinje i čitao knjigu „Grof monte Kristo“. njegova majka Katarina bila je jedna od devet ćerki imućnog, obrazovanog i sposobnog

senćanskog trgovca Filipa Đorđevića. Udala se preko reda, kao prva od sestara, uprkos očevom protivljenju, za lepog ali siromašnog krojača adama Sremca, koji je stanovao u dvorištu porodične kuće. Umrla je kada su prvencu Stevanu bile tri godine. Braću i njega i prihvatile su tetke, jer je otac više voleo kafanski život i kartanje. Umro je kada je Stevanu bilo dvanaest godina. Sećao se oca kao kicoša, čoveka koji se oblačio gospodski, uvek nosio mekani, na čelo nahereni šešir. Iako otac nije imao veliki uticaj na njegovo odrastanje, vaspitanje i obrazovanje, bilo je u njegovom izgledu i ponašanju nečega što je, svesno ili ne, Stevan podražavao. voleo je da se lepo oblači, nosio je šešir, imao ufitiljene brkove i gord i dostojanstven stav, ali je kartanje mrzeo iznad svega. Iz Bačke u Beograd, da živi kod ujaka, stigao je sa tetkom macom i dva mlađa brata. trinaestogodišnjaku koji je tek završio osnovnu školu grad je morao izgledati veliki i nepoznat, ali se dolasku radovao, naravno ne onako kako se radovao kada se, znatno stariji, u njega vraćao posle trinaest godina službovanja u novooslobođenim srpskim zemljama. taj osećaj pripisao je junaku svoje pripovetke „Ideal“ „... Kako mu je danas sve čarobno i milo izgledalo, svi ti stari poznanici iz doba bezbrižnog đakovanja njegovog! I ta plava avala, taj Košutnjak, topčider, pa ada ciganlija, i krasni taj pejzaž kao najlepši i najvedriji akvarel, pa Sava i Dunav, i beskrajna banatska ravnica, koja se pružala iza Dunava daleko iza pančevačkih crkvenih kula! Pa onaj venac amfiteatralno poređanih kuća kao polumesec oko negdašnje Bare venecije, pa Saborna crkva!... “ Ujak aUtor srpske himne na samom početku Knez mihailove ulice nalazila se kafana „Hajduk veljko“, a do nje kuća na sprat sa kolskim prolazom u dvorište. U prizemlju kuće nalazila se delikatesna radnja Karla Perola, poslastičara, trgovca i kafedžije italijanskog porekla, a na njenom spratu stanovao je Jovan Đorđević. taj ugledni čovek prešao je iz novog Sada da bi postao upravnik narodnog pozorišta u Beogradu, koje je tek sagrađeno. nakon što je već mnogo učinio za kulturni i politički život srpskog naroda u vojvodini, nastavio je u Beogradu svoje višestruko delovanje. Bio je profesor visoke škole, nakratko ministar prosvete, nastavnik istorije i geografije kralja aleksandra Obrenovića, književnik, prevodilac, pisac više udžbenika, osnivač i predavač na Glumačkoj školi, autor stihova srpske himna. Pored svega nabrojanog, bio je i posvećeni brat i ujak koji je u Beograd preselio svoju mnogobrojnu porodicu iz Sente, Bečkereka, mokrina i starao se o njoj. među njima našao se i mali Stevan, sa braćom Jovanom i andrejom i tetkom martom.


Pokazalo se ubrzo da je Stevan dobar đak, uspešno je završio Prvu gimnaziju, dok je ujak upisao Jovana na limarski, a andreju na krojački zanat. S vremenom su svi postali uspešni u svom poslu. Ujak je bio pravi uzor svome sestriću. I Sremca je zanimala klasična i nacionalna prošlost, na Istorijsko – filološki odsek velike škole upisao se da bi, kao i ujak, posao istoričar. Bio je rodoljub, humanista, pobožan pravoslavac, milosrdan, ljubitelj životinja i, ispostavilo se, neženja do smrti. Baš kao i Jovan Đorđević, bio je vatreni pobornik liberala. Posle završenih studija dobio je nakratko posao pripravnika u ministarstvu finansija. „Ludi Steva“, kako ga u svom dnevniku ljutito naziva Jovan Đorđević, odbio je da bude domaći učitelj u kući kneževskog namesnika, već je prihvatio mesto predavača u gimnaziji u nišu. ta odluka značajna je za Sremca, ali još više za niš i našu književnost. na jugu će se pred njim otvoriti jedan dotle nepoznati svet, galerija originalnih likova, običaja i navika. Ono što ne bude skicirao ili zabeležio rečima, upiće i smestiti u sećanje. proFesor i književnik Stevan Sremac je sve do kraja života predavao u gimnazijama u nišu, Pirotu i Beogradu. mada, ma koliko bio darovit kao profesor i sa koliko ljubavi prenosio rodoljublje i znanje novim generacijama, ne bi ostao upamćen da nije pisao. Počeo je još u nišu da, ugledajući se na ujaka, piše i objavljuje istorijske pripovetke. Pisane svečanim i pomalo arhaičnim jezikom, priče „Iz knjiga starostavnih“ bile su „divne slike plemenitosti i viteštva, lepote i požrtvovanja“ koje su vaskrsle vladimira, kralja dukljanskog, velikog župana Časlava, Svetog Savu, miloša Obilića, cara Lazara i desetine drugih. najveći autoritet za Sremca, kada je reč o pisanju, bio je njegov školski drug Ljubomir nedić, koji se smatra za začetnika moderne književne kritike kod nas. najpre nije smeo da mu prizna da piše, pisao je pod pseudonimom. Kada je on to ipak otkrio, dopalo mu se. na nedićev zahtev, Sremac mu je odneo rukopis „Slava Ivka jorgandžije“. Plašeći se reakcije, nije se usuđivao da dolazi čitavu nedelju, da bi došao tek sedmog dana, kada mu je nedić čestitao, a rukopis uskoro objavio u nastavcima kao „Ivkovu slavu“. Oživeli su svi oni upamćeni i skicirani likovi iz niša, progovorili novim jezikom i nasmejali čitaoce. I zasmejavaće ih čitav naredni vek, sve do danas. tokom naredne decenije Sremac’s notebooks

The house where he was born in Senta Stevan Sremac će postati naš najpopularniji književnik. Kada se pojavila „Zona Zamfirova“, postalo je jasno da se svaka godina provedena u nišu isplatila i piscu i nišlijama. nije čudo što je predlažući da ga proglase za akademika, jedan od predlagača samo napisao da je on „čuveni pisac pripovedaka i priča iz narodnog života u jugoistočnim srpskim zemljama“. kaFanski drUG i akademik Strogi Jovan Skerlić, veliki književni autoritet s početka 20. veka, u prvoj ozbiljnoj studiji o Sremcu zamerio mu je što na život gleda kao kafanski čovek, i da je dao obrazac „vinske pripovetke“. „On je“, kaže Skerlić, „pesnik nalivenog bokala i punog stola“.., i dodaje da „... ni u jednom srpskom delu nema toliko pesama kao u Sremca, i rekao bi čovek da njegovi junaci ne sklapaju vilice, i da ne pevaju samo kada piju i da ne piju samo kada pevaju.“ Priznao je ipak da je u našu književnost „uneo više duha nego ijedan srpski pisac“. Sremac je u kafanama provodio dosta vremena ne samo zato što je bio samac i u njima se hranio. On je kafanu voleo, jer je uvek bila puna života, društva, veselja. Često je upravo za kafanskim stolom opažao zanimljive likove i situacije, skicirao, pravio karikature, beležio kako se ponašaju, kako govore, šta misle, šta pevaju. Zapisivao je i prepisivao u svoje beležnice „materijal“, beležio anegdote i zanimljive životne priče, pravio sažetke, kojima bi kasnije, na stranicama svojih pripovedaka – udahnuo život. Jedan kolega profesor, koji je mnogo voleo novac, kritikovao ga je nekom prilikom da zbog druženja i takvog načina života neće posle smrti ništa ostaviti. Sremac mu je odgovorio da mu posle smrti ništa neće ni biti potrebno, a da je dosta ako ostavi malo od svoga imena. Umro je iznenada, posle kraće bolesti, tokom letnjeg raspusta u Sokobanji. Ostalo je ne samo veliko ime pisca koji nije stigao ni da održi akademsku besedu, već i uspomena na dobrog čoveka i jedinstveno delo u kojem je ostalo sačuvano davno prošlo vreme Beograda, niša, Banata, Bačke ...

A HOUSE OF CREATIVE SOULS The Belgrade municipality of Savski Venac is close to realising a decades-old idea to convert the Senjak villa where King Petar I Karađorđević spent the final years of his life into a museum by transforming this former “villa in the vineyards” into a cultural centre. The house of King Petar, I, which following reconstruction now fulfils all the requirements of a top-class gallery space, is used as a venue where concerts, fashion shows, literary presentations and standing exhibitions of leading Serbian artists are organised.

T

he building at 40 Vase Pelagića Street was erected in 1896 by prominent Belgrade trader Đorđe Pavlović. Surrounded by a garden, the house was built in the tradition of the then modern “villas in the vineyards,” in the “manner of Academism and Renaissance.” King Petar lived there following his return from

the Balkan wars and World War I – from September 1919 until his death in August 1921. The building of the Old Palace, currently Belgrade City Hall, was damaged during World War I, which led the Court’s management to rent the villa from the Pavlović family for King Petar, who paid rent to the owners in the amount of 3,000 dinars – as evidenced by

the payment receipts now kept in the Historical Museum of Serbia. This two-storey building, which is modest by royal standards, was purchased upon the decision of the Ministerial Council on 9th February 1924 from the Pavlović family, with the intention of reopening it as a museum to King Petar I the Liberator. There


THE KING’S BIOGRAPHY Petar Karađorđević I (1844-1921), grandson of Karađorđe, was king of Serbia and the first ruler of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. He was educated in his native Belgrade, as well as Geneva and Paris. He graduated from the prestigious military school of Saint-Cyr and in Paris he was also dedicated to photography and painting. He socialised with Russian anarchists and revolutionaries, for which he was later nicknamed the “Red Prince”. At the age of 24 he published his translation of John Stuart Mill’s “On Liberty” in Vienna and the preface he then wrote later became his political manifesto. As a volunteer in the Foreign Legion, he took part in the Franco-Prussian War and was decorated for bravery. As Petar Mrkonjić, he participated in the Nevesinje Rebellion in 1875. For a time he lived in Montenegro, where he married Zorka Petrović, the eldest daughter of Prince Nikola, with whom he had five children. After her death he moved to Geneva. After the May 1903 coup d’état and assassination of King Aleksandar Obrenović, the National Assembly proclaimed him King of Serbia in June 1903. He was crowned in Belgrade’s Saborna cathedral church and, following the model of the medieval Nemanjić Dynasty, was anointed at Žiča Monastery. He gave up his throne on 22nd June 1914, when his second born son, Aleksandar, became regent. He spent World War I in a military overcoat alongside his soldiers, who called him Uncle Pera. He was buried in the Church of Saint George, his Oplenac memorial.

was even the establishing of a Committee, which at the start of World War II installed a fence with an imposing gate by which this house is still recognisable by today. The personal items of King Petar that were collected and preserved here include: the bed in which the king died, part of the salon, car doors, a shelf, the king’s cabinet - work desk, books, announcements and posters from the time of his reign. during World War II the house was occupied by germans. Until 1945 the villa was cared for by the king’s companion, gendarmerie sergeant Vukoman nikolić, while after WWII the house belonged to the Ministry of education and housed the Branko Radičević primary school. The villa has been under the ownership of the Municipality of Savski Venac since 1951 and was used as a residential building. On the initiative

TECHNOLOGY OF AN AUGMENTED REALITY The memorial room of King Petar I was opened in June last year. This room is the world’s first example of the representation of an historic figure and cultural heritage using AR technology - augmented reality. The authors of the display are Marko Todorović and Jana Rodić. The basis of the display comprises a mosaic made up of hundreds of photos of King Petar I, his family, his contemporaries and important events, designed so as to create a portrait of King Petar I on the wall. With the help of “smart” phone and tablet computer applications, visitors can discover access multimedia content in an augmented reality. Savski Venac municipal staff members say that “minimalism in design at the conceptual level corresponds to the modest and disciplined way of life of King Peter I.”

of this municipality, a new committee was set up in 1989 to establish the Museum of King Petar I. Like the pre-war committee, it was tasked with collecting misplaced items and objects that belonged to members of the royal House of Karađorđević. The tenants were relocated in 2005, when the municipality took over responsibility for the house. during 2006 works were carried out on the restoration of the façade, while three

years later the reconstruction works on the entire building were brought to an end. The municipal council passed regulations on the use of the house of King Petar I and 2010 saw the appointment of the commission responsible for completing the museum’s exhibitions and cultural events that are organised in the House of King Petar I. The list of cultural events that this house has since hosted is long and impressive. In

cooperation with the Faculty of Musical Arts, some twenty concerts have been held under the title “Sounds of Senjak”. These concerts featured numerous Serbian musicians – the String Players of Saint george, Marko Kalajanović, Patricia Sands, Vladimir gligorić, the Lučinuška Choir etc. There have been literary evenings devoted to the works of Isidora Sekulić and Aleksandar Petrov, a promotion of novels by Laura Barna and Mileta Prodanović, lectures etc. The Belgraders and foreign diplomats who mostly live in this part of town have become very fond of King Petar’s House as a special gallery area. It has hosted exhibitions of Sava Stojkov, Olja Ivanjicki, Cile Marinković, Vladan Subotić, Biljana Cincarević etc. In cooperation with the Association for Support to Contemporary Serbian Art, exhibitions of artists from all over Serbia are staged here. The venue is also open for fashion events, film shoots, receptions, donor dinners, design exhibitions, literary promotions etc. This culture centre saw the presenting of the Rock & Roll History of Serbia within the days of Belgrade event, while it is also part of the annual night of Museums event. In addition to art programmes, the House of King Petar I offers the relaxed atmosphere of Senjak and enjoyment in its gardens, where you can even meet a local squirrel.

ZAdUŽBInA KRALjA PeTRA PRVOg KARAĐORĐeVIćA

KUĆA KREATIVNIH DUŠA Više decenija staru ideju da se kuća na Senjaku u kojoj je poslednje godine života proveo kralj Petar Prvi Karađorđević pretvori u muzej, beogradska opština Savski venac približila je ostvarenju, pretvorivši ovu nekadašnju „vilu u vinogradima“ u kulturni centar. U kući kralja Petra Prvog, koja posle rekonstrukcije ispunjava sve zahteve vrhunskih galerijskih prostora, održavaju se koncerti, modne revije, predstavljaju knjige, organizuju izložbe vodećih srpskih umetnika.

Z

danje u ulici Vase Pelagića broj 40 podigao je 1896. godine ugledni beogradski trgovac Đorđe Pavlović. Okružena baštom, kuća je sagrađena po ugledu na tada moderne „vile u vinogradima“, u „maniru akademizma i neorenesanse“. Kralj Petar je u njoj živeo posle povratka iz balkanskih ratova i Prvog svetskog rata – od septembra 1919. do smrti, u avgustu 1921. godine. Zgrada

Starog dvora, današnje gradske skupštine, bila je oštećena tokom Prvog svetskog rata, pa je Uprava dvora iznajmila od porodice Pavlović tu vilu za kralja Petra, koji je vlasnicima plaćao kiriju od 3.000 tadašnjih dinara, o čemu svedoče uplatnice koje se sada čuvaju u Istorijskom muzeju Srbije. Ova, za kraljevske prilike skromna dvospratnica, odlukom Ministarskog saveta od 9. februara 1924, otkupljena je od porodice Pavlović, s nam-

erom da se u njoj otvori muzej kralja Petra Prvog Oslobodioca. Osnovan je i Odbor, koji je do početka drugog svetskog rata podigao ogradu sa impozantnom kapijom, po kojoj se ova kuća i danas prepoznaje. Od ličnih stvari kralja Petra prikupljeni su i sačuvani: krevet u kojem je kralj preminuo, deo salona, vrata automobila, polica, kraljev kabinet – radni sto, knjige, proglasi i plakati iz vremena njegove vladavine.

KRALJEVA BIOGRAFIJA

Petar Prvi Karađorđević (1844-1921), unuk vožda Karađorđa, bio je kralj Srbije i prvi vladar Kraljevine Srba, Hrvata i Slovenaca. Školovao se u rodnom Beogradu, Ženevi i Parizu. Završio je prestižnu vojnu školu Sen-Sir, a u Parizu se bavio i fotografijom, slikarstvom, družio se sa ruskim anarhistima i revolucionarima, zbog čega je i dobio nadimak „crveni princ“. U 24. godini u Beču je štampao svoj prevod knjige Džona Stjuarta Mila „O slobodi“, a predgovor koji je tada napisao kasnije je postao njegov politički program. Kao dobrovoljac u Legiji stranaca, učestvovao je u francusko-pruskom ratu i bio odlikovan za hrabrost. Kao Petar Mrkonjić, učestvovao je u Nevesinjskoj buni, 1875. godine. Neko vreme živeo je u Crnoj Gori, gde se oženio Zorkom Petrović, najstarijom ćerkom kneza Nikole, s kojom je imao petoro dece. Posle njene smrti preselio se u Ženevu. Narodna skupština ga je, posle Majskog prevrata i ubistva kralja Aleksandra Obrenovića, u junu 1903. godine, izabrala za kralja Srbije. Krunisan je u beogradskoj Sabornoj crkvi, a po ugledu na Nemanjiće, miropomazan u manastiru Žiča. Sa vlasti se povukao 22. juna 1914, kada je njegov drugorođeni sin Aleksandar postao regent. Prvi svetski rat proveo je u vojničkom šinjelu, sa svojim vojnicima, koji su ga zvali „čiča Pera“. Sahranjen je u Crkvi Svetog Đorđa, svojoj zadužbini na Oplencu. Tokom drugog svetskog rata u kući su boravili nemci. do 1945. o vili je brinuo kraljev pratilac žandarmerijski narednik Vukoman nikolić, a posle drugog svetskog rata pripala je Ministarstvu prosvete i u njoj je bila smeštena Osnovna škola „Branko Radičević“. Vila se u vlasništvu opštine Savski venac nalazi od 1951. godine. Korišćena je kao stambeni objekat. na inicijativu te opštine, 1989. godine osnovan je novi Odbor za osnivanje Muzeja kralja Petra Prvog, koji je, kao i onaj predratni, imao zadatak da prikupi zagubljene stvari i predmete koju su pripadali članovima kraljevskog doma Karađorđević. Stanari su iseljeni 2005, kada je opština preuzela brigu o kući. Tokom 2006. izvršeni su radovi na restauraciji fasade, a tri godine kasnije privedeni su kraju i radovi na rekonstrukciji celog objekta. Opštinsko veće donelo je Pravilnik o korišćenju

Kuće kralja Petra i 2010. imenovalo Komisiju koja je zadužena za kompletiranje muzejske postavke i izbor kulturnih manifestacija koje se organizuju u Kući kralja Petra. Lista kulturnih događaja kojima je Kuća od tada domaćin je duga i impresivna. U saradnji sa Fakultetom muzičke umetnosti, održano je dvadesetak koncerata sa nazivom „Zvuci Senjaka“. na njima su učestvovali mnogobojni srpski muzičari – gudači Svetog Đorđa, Marko Kalajanović, Patricia Sands, Vladimir gligorić, Hor „Lučinuška“... Održane su i književne večeri posvećene Isidori Sekulić, Aleksandru Petrovu, promocije romana Laure Barne i Milete Prodanovića, predavanja… Kuća kralja Petra je Beograđanima i stranim diplomatama, koji većinom žive u ovom delu grada, prirasla srcu kao galerijski prostor. U njoj su održane izložbe Save Stojkova, Olje Ivanjicki,

Cileta Marinkovića, Vladana Subotića, Biljane Cincarević... U saradnji sa Udruženjem za podršku savremenoj srpskoj umetnosti, priređuju se izložbe likovnih umetnika iz cele Srbije. Prostor je otvoren i za modna zbivanja, snimanje filmova, prijeme, donatorske večeri, izložbe dizajna, promocije časopisa... U okviru dana Beograda u ovom kulturnom centru predstavljena je „Istorija rokenrola u Srbiji“, a deo je i manifestacije „noć muzeja“. Pored umetničkih programa, Kuća kralja Petra nudi opuštenu atmosferu Senjaka i uživanje u vrtu, u kojem se može sresti i koja veverica. Jelena TaSić fotografije: Darimir BanDa

TEHNOLOGIJA PROŠIRENE STVARNOSTI

Spomen-soba kralja Petra Prvog otvorena je u junu prošle godine. U njoj je prvi put u svetu za predstavljanje istorijske ličnost i kulturne baštine upotrebljena AR tehnologija – tehnologija proširene stvarnosti. Autori postavke su Marko Todorović i Jana Rodić. Osnovu postavke čini mozaik sastavljen od više stotina fotografija kralja Petra, njegove porodice, savremenika, važnih događaja, dizajniranih tako da na zidu grade portret kralja Petra Prvog. Uz pomoć aplikacije za „pametne“ telefone ili tablet-računare, posetiocima se otkrivaju dodatni multimedijalni sadržaj u proširenoj stvarnosti. U Savskom vencu kažu da „minimalizam u dizajnu na konceptualnom nivou korespondira sa skromnim i disciplinovanim načinom života kralja Petra“.

FURNITURE, SERBIA’S EXPORT POTENTIAL Cube Chair, designer: Tamara Švonja, manufacturer: Simpo Šik

According to the statistics of the Serbian Statistical Office, the furniture sector recorded exports worth US$214 million last year, which is 19 per cent higher than in the previous year. Though encouraging, we cannot yet say that this is the desired level. What is certainly a major advancement is the fact that Serbia has begun recording an increase in the share of completed, i.e., final, products in the overall structure of exports. It is a fact that orientation towards products at a higher stage of processing adds value to overall production, but also the export structure, ultimately resulting in an increase in export value, but also a higher level of the country’s development.

A

ccording to expert opinions, Serbian furniture manufacturers are certainly competitive on the European market, but it seems that few amongst them are really daring or at least endeavouring, to present their products beyond the borders of Serbia and the region. On the one hand, this could be because the domestic market is currently still managing to absorb domestic supply, while on the other hand such a situation arises as a result of a lack of confidence and exposure to practices abroad. Serbia traditionally has exceptional engineering professionals and very talented designers in this area, as well as quality raw materials for furniture production. All this, together with the corresponding production optimisation and a well-designed

marketing approach, should be a win-win combination. FAIRS AND PROMOTIONS OF DOMESTIC MANUFACTURERS As part of its activities to promote the export potential of the domestic economy, the Serbian Investment and Export Promotion Agency (SIEPA) placed an emphasis on the furniture industry, among other areas. In addition to organising the participation of Serbian companies on the Serbian national stands at international fairs, great attention is also paid to strengthening synergies between young designers and local furniture manufacturers, as well as organising B2B meetings with potential foreign partners. This year SIEPA is

again organising the participation of local furniture sector companies at prestigious international fairs. This year’s calendar includes the M.O.W. fair, which is held from 22nd to 26th September in the German city of Bad Salzuflen, and the Mebel expo that takes place in Moscow from 19th to 23rd November. In addition to these trade shows, preparations are underway for the start of next year, when we are planning to appear for the first time at the IMM Cologne fair, held from 14th to 20th January in this German city. M.O.W. The M.O.W. fair is one of the most important furniture production trade shows in Germany. Serbian companies will be exhibiting at the fair for the

in Milan for the past two years. Furniture presented at this festival has been created as a result of the synergy of ideas of young Serbian designers and domestic furniture manufacturers. The final products presented at the national stand of Serbia are completely “Made in Serbia”.

Table, designer: Žarko Uzelac, manufacturer: Simpo Šik second time this year. It is intended for top managers, wholesale distributors and retail furniture chains, warehousing chains and professional DIYtype retailers. MEBEL The fact that furniture was added to the list of products covered by Serbia’s Fee Trade Agreement with Russia in 2011 opened up vast opportunities for Serbian companies. Serbian furniture has shown to have great potential on the Russian market, which also represents one of Serbia’s target export markets. Since last year SIEPA has been organising the participation of Serbian companies at the Mebel furniture trade show, as one of the Creative Space Serbia at Milan’s Fuori Salone

most important events of the timber and furniture industries in Russia. IMM COLOGNE IMM Cologne is one of the world’s leading trade fairs in the field of modern furniture and interior design. This fair traditionally marks the start of a new year of design and furniture. The entire furniture industry, from primary wood processing to finished products, is presented here. SIEPA has organised Serbia’s first participation at this fair for next year. FUORI SALONE SIEPA has organised the participation of young Serbian designers at the largest festival of design

B2B MEETINGS In cooperation with the Association of Furniture and Woodworking Enterprises of Northwest Russia, SIEPA is organising the first RussianSerbian business meetings, to take place at the end of May. More than thirty Serbian furniture manufacturing companies have taken advantage of the opportunity to meet with 11 Russian companies to establish contractual agreements and improve business relations between Serbian furniture makers and Russian buyers. The Russian buyers who participated in this event are mainly engaged in the import, distribution and placement of furniture through their trade chains, as well as furnishing hotels and other facilities within the Russian Federation.

NAMEŠTAJ, IZVOZNI POTENCIJAL SRBIJE

Creative Space Serbia at Moscow’s Mebel furniture trade show Prema podacima Republičkog zavoda za statistiku, sektor nameštaja je u prošloj godini ostvario izvoz u vrednosti od 214. miliona dolara, što je za 19 procenata više u odnosu na prethodnu godinu. Iako ohrabruje, još se ne može reći da je to i željeni nivo. Ono što svakako jeste veliki pomak, to je podatak da Srbija počinje da beleži porast udela gotovih, odnosno finalnih proizvoda u ukupnoj strukturi izvoza. Činjenica je da će usmerenost ka proizvodima više faze obrade i dodate vrednosti u ukupnoj proizvodnji, ali i strukturi izvoza, u krajnjem rezultirati porastom vrednosti izvoza, ali i višim nivoom razvijenosti zemlje.

P

rema ocenama stručnjaka, srpski proizvođači nameštaja svakako jesu konkurentni na evropskom tržištu, ali se čini da su retki oni koji se zaista i usude ili, pak, potrude da svoje proizvode predstave van granica Srbije i regiona. S jedne strane, to može biti zato što domaće tržište za sada još uspeva da apsorbuje domaću ponudu, a, s druge, takva situacija nastaje zbog nedostatka samopouzdanja i prakse izlaganja u inostranstvu. Srbija tradicionalno ima izuzetan inženjerski kadar, veoma talentovane dizajnere u ovoj oblasti, te kvalitetnu sirovinu za proizvodnju nameštaja. Sve ovo zajedno, uz optimizaciju proizvodnje i dobro osmišljen marketinški nastup, trebalo bi da bude dobitna kombinacija. SAJMOVI I PROMOCIJA DOMAĆIH PROIZVOĐAČA U okviru svojih aktivnosti, na promociji izvoznih potencijala domaće privrede Agencija za strana ulaganja i promociju izvoza Republike Srbije (SIEPA), između ostalih, potencira i industriju nameštaja. Pored organizovanja nastupa srpskih firmi u okviru nacionalnog štanda Srbije na međunarodnim sajmovima, velika pažnja se posvećuje i jačanju sinergije između mladih dizajnera i domaćih proizvođača nameštaja, te organizovanju B2B sastanaka sa potencijalnim inostranim partnerima. I ove godine SIEPA organizuje nastup domaćih firmi iz sektora nameštaja na prestižnim međunarodnim sajmovima. U kalendaru za ovu godinu nalaze se sajam M.O.W., koji se od 22. do 26. septembra

održava u nemačkom gradu Bad Salcuflenu, i sajam Mebel, koji se od 19. do 23. novembra održava u Moskvi. Pored ovih sajmova, u toku su pripreme i za sam početak naredne godine, kada se prvi put planira nastup i na sajmu IMM Cologne, koji se od 14. do 20. januara 2013. održava u Kelnu, u Nemačkoj.

modernog nameštaja i dizajna enterijera je IMM Cologne. Njime tradicionalno započinje nova godina dizajna i nameštaja. Ovde se predstavlja kompletna industrija nameštaja, od faze primarne prerade drveta do finalnih proizvoda. Prvo naše učešće na ovom sajmu SIEPA je organizovala za narednu godinu.

M.O.W. Sajam M.O.W. jedna je od najznačajnijih sajamskih manifestacija u Nemačkoj u oblasti proizvodnje nameštaja. Ove godine će se srpske firme drugi put predstaviti. Namenjen je top menadžerima, veleprodajnim i maloprodajnim distributerima nameštaja, lancima stovarišta i profesionalnim prodavnicama tipa „uradi sam“.

FUORI SALONE Već dve godine zaredom SIEPA organizuje nastup mladih dizajnera na najvećoj smotri dizajna u Milanu, na kojoj se predstavljaju komadi nameštaja nastali kao rezultat sinergije ideja mladih srpskih dizajnera i domaćih proizvođača nameštaja. Finalni proizvodi koji se predstavljaju na nacionalnom štandu Srbije u su potpunosti „Made in Serbia”.

MEBEL Činjenica da je od 2011. godine nameštaj pridodat na listu proizvoda koji su obuhvaćeni Sporazumom o slobodnoj trgovini sa Rusijom, otvorila je velike mogućnosti za srpska preduzeća. Pokazalo se da srpski nameštaj ima veliki potencijal na ruskom tržištu koje ujedno predstavlja i jedno od ciljnih izvoznih tržišta Srbije. Agencija SIEPA od prošle godine organizuje nastup srpskih kompanija na sajmu Mebel, kao jednom od najznačajnijih događaja iz oblasti drvne industrije i nameštaja u Rusiji.

B2B SASTANCI U saradnji sa Udruženjem preduzeća industrije nameštaja Severozapada Rusije SIEPA krajem maja prvi put organizuje Rusko-srpske poslovne susrete. Više od 30 srpskih kompanija koje proizvode nameštaj iskoristilo je priliku da se sastane sa 11 ruskih kompanija kako bi se sklopili ugovori i unapredili poslovni odnosi između srpskih proizvođača nameštaja i ruskih kupaca. Ruski kupci koji učestvuju u ovom događaju uglavnom se bave uvozom, distribucijom i plasiranjem nameštaja kroz svoje trgovinske lance, te opremanjem hotela i drugih objekata na teritoriji Ruske Federacije.

THE GREAT RETURN OF A HOTEL DIVA From its opening in 1957, the Hotel Metropol spent almost half a century as the perfect representative of the capital. Prestigious, luxurious, elegant and stylish, the Metropol was the centre of Belgrade social life, provided the setting for key events and played host to the most famous names from around the world and from the local political, economic and cultural elite. The announced opening of the renovated Hotel Metropol Palace, which utilises a modern style to restore the luxury, grandeur and splendour of the atmosphere of the old Metropol, is undoubtedly a major happening for Belgrade.

T

he Hotel Metropol is among the city’s most important architectural monuments. Designed by famous Serbian architect Dragiša Brašovan, it was conceived and built as one of the most exclusive and elegant hotels of its era. Even Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito enjoyed New Year’s celebrations at the Metropol. In 1961 he and his wife hosted a Metropol reception for some 2,000 guests and leaders of the First Summit of the Non-aligned Movement. Neil Armstrong – the first man to set foot on the moon – was also a guest of

the Metropol. The list of world immortals whose names have been entered into the hotel’s golden guest book is long: Kirk Douglas, Louis Armstrong, Igor Stravinsky, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Jack Nicholson, Gina Lollobrigida, Bobby Fischer and many more. REFINED COMBINATION OF STYLE & TRADITION Led by the idea of restoring the Metropol’s splendour, architects were tasked with integrating

and matching modern solutions to its historical heritage, with the result being a refined and simultaneously relaxed atmosphere that was always the trademark of the Metropol. Responsibility for the interior of the Metropol Palace was entrusted to company MKV Design – one of the world’s most respected companies specialising in hotel interiors. Their projects to date have included, among others, the Regent Emirates Pearl Hotel in Abu Dhabi, the Atlas Tower in Dubai, the Royal Savoy Hotel in Lausanne and the Westin Navarino Dunes project in


parks, providing guests with tranquility, luxury and unparalleled comfort. The Metropol Palace is also designed as the city’s largest centre for conferences, meetings and events and can accommodate, depending on event needs, up to 1000 guests. In the restaurant offer guests will find, among other things, a rooftop bar and an a la carte restaurant serving a specific combination of Greek and Oriental food. The main Metropol Palace chef is Jovica Nešković, while the chef in charge of creating this unique culinary fusion is Christoforos Peskias. In addition to the restaurant and conference centre, the hotel will also include a modern spa and fitness centre with a swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room and many other facilities dedicated to health, beauty and relaxation.

The gorgeous apartments, including the unique presidential and royal suites, offer wonderful views over Tašmajdan Park - one of the city’s most beautiful

by today’s business travellers, tourists and those seeking to experience belonging and living in a different reality for a “snippet of time”. The Metropol Palace Belgrade project is definitely one of the most advanced and most spectacular hotel projects in Southeast Europe. “We expect the preliminary opening in the summer of 2012, with the grand opening of the entire hotel in autumn. We hope to receive our first guests in July. Over the coming months we will organise a large number of different events, including an exhibition in Tašmajdan that will show the wonderful history of the Metropol from its first opening to this day. We want the renewed Metropol Palace to regain its rightful place on the map of Belgrade as soon as possible and become one of the most important locations in the city and a meeting place for all major events,” says Jelena Đaković, pr and marketing manager of the hotel, concluding the presentation of this great enterprise.

VELIKI POVRATAK HOTELSKE DIVE Od otvaranja, 1957. godine, hotel Metropol je gotovo pola veka bio savršen predstavnik prestonice. Prestižan, luksuzan, elegantan i moderan, Metropol je bio središte beogradskog društvenog života, pozornica ključnih dešavanja i domaćin najpoznatijih imena svetske i domaće političke, privredne i kulturne elite. Najavljeno otvaranje renoviranog hotela „Metropol Palace“, koji u modernom kodu vraća luksuz, raskoš i sjaj ambijenta starog „Metropola“ nesumnjivo je veliki događaj za Beograd.

H

otel „Metropol“ spada u red najznačajnijih arhitektonskih spomenika grada Beograda. Projektovao ga je čuveni srpski arhtekta Dragiša Brašovan. Zamišljen je i izveden kao jedan od najekskluzivnijih i najelegantnijih hotela svoga doba. Nove godine u „Metropolu“ dočekivao je predsednik SFRJ Josip Broz Tito. On i njegova supruga su 1961. godine tu priredili prijem za oko 2.000 zvanica lidera Prvog samita pokreta nesvrstanih zemalja. Nil Armstrong – prvi čovek koji je kročio na Mesec, bio je gost „Metropola“. Lista svetskih besmrtnika koji su upisani u zlatnu knjigu gostiju poduža je: Kirk Daglas, Luj Armstrong, Igor Stravinski, Elizabet Tejlor, Sofija Loren, Džek Nikolson, Đina Lolobriđida, Bobi Fišer... PREFINJENA KOMBINACIJA STILA I TRADICIJE Sa idejom da povrate sjaj „Metropolu“, arhitekte su imale projektni zadatak da istorijsko nasleđe uklope i nadgrade modernim rešenjima, a rezultat je prefinjena i ujedno opuštena atmosfera, koja je oduvek zaštitni znak „Metropola“. Za enterijer „Metropol Palaca“ zadužena je kompanija MKV dizajn – jedna od najuglednijih svetskih kompanija specijalizovana

za hotelske enterijere. Neki od njihovih projekata su „Regent Emirates Pearl Hotel“ u Abu Dabiju, „Atlas Tower“ u Dubaiju, „Royal Savoy Hotel“ u Lozani, projekat „Westin Navarino Dunes“ u Grčkoj... Sobe i apartmani novog „Metropol Palaca“ raskošno su opremljeni i upotpunjeni najnovijim komunikacionim tehnologijama. Velelepni apartmani, uključujući jedinstveni predsednički i kraljevski apartman, pružaju predivan pogled na Tašmajdanski park – jedan od najlepših gradskih parkova, i obezbeđuju gostima mir, luksuz i udobnost bez premca. „Metropol Palace“ projektovan je i kao najveći centar za konferencije, sastanke i dešavanja, koji, u zavisnosti od potreba, može da primi i do 1.000 zvanica. U restoranskoj ponudi naći će, između ostalog, i bar na krovu hotela i A la carte restoran, koji će služiti specifičnu kombinaciju grčke i orijentalne hrane. Šef kuhinje hotela je Jovica Nešković, a kuvar zadužen za kreiranje ove jedinstvene kulinarske fuzije je Kriostoforos Peskijas. Pored restorana i konferencijskog centra, u sklopu hotela će postojati moderan Spa i Fitness centar sa bazenom, Jacuzzijem, saunom, parnim kupatilom i brojnim drugim sadržajima namenjenim zdravlju, lepoti i opuštanju.

OSTVARENJE SPEKTAKULARNOG PROJEKTA Ideja novog hotela jeste da vrati stari sjaj i slavu nekadašnjeg „Metropola“ i upotpuni ih svim modernim pogodnostima koje su potrebne današnjim poslovnim putnicima, turistima i svima koji žele da u „isečku vremena“ pripadaju i žive u drugačijoj stvarnosti. Projekat „Metropol Palace Belgrade“ svakako je jedan od najnaprednijih i najspektakularnijih hotelskih projekata u jugoistočnoj Evropi. „Očekujemo preliminarno otvaranje tokom leta 2012. godine i veliko otvaranje kompletnog hotela na jesen, a nadamo se da ćemo prve goste primiti u julu. Tokom narednih meseci, organizovaćemo veliki broj raznovrsnih dešavanja, uključujući i izložbu na Tašmajdanu, koja će prikazati istoriju ‘Metropola’ od njegovog otvaranja do danas. Želimo da obnovljeni ‘Metropol Palace’ što pre ponovo zauzme svoje zasluženo mesto na karti Beograda i postane jedna od najznačajnijih lokacija u gradu i stecište svih najvažnijih dešavanja“, kaže za kraj predstavljanja ovog velikog poduhvata Jelena Đaković, PR i marketing menadžer hotela.

TOURISM ORGANISATION OF BELGRADE SURVEY

TOURISTS SPEAK ABOUT BELGRADE – MORE THAN POSITIVE

N

umerous indicators provide support for Belgrade’s rapid development as a tourist destination. Many international media companies have proclaimed Belgrade as a capital of nightlife; the city is also wellpositioned as a desirable city break destination and a centre of business and congress tourism; there are also an increasing number of tourists arriving in Belgrade on cruise ships... In order to improve the offer and attempt to analyse the complex mosaic that comprises the image of a city’s tourist attractions, the Tourism Organisation of Belgrade, in conjunction with the Institute for Informatics and Statistics, has conducted a survey entitled Rating Belgrade’s tourist offer. This is also part of a series of projects under the management of Ljiljana Alajbegović, conducted and implemented by the Tourism Organisation of Belgrade’s Department of Development and Marketing, with a focus definitely on market research projects that aim to promote tourism in our city. The results of the survey showed that the average tourist who visits Belgrade

is a male younger than 35 who spends about €612 during a three-day visit and rates his level of satisfaction with his stay in Belgrade as high! The survey examined satisfaction in various segments of Belgrade’s offer. When rating the diversity of tourist attractions, 86 percent of respondents provided a positive grade; while in terms of accommodation 74 percent described hotels with a good grade, hostels were given three percent less, while private accommodation had the lowest rating. Presenting the results of this survey, Dejan Veselinov, Director of the Tourism Organisation of Belgrade, said that the strongest impressions of tourists are linked to the hospitality of Belgrade residents, the city’s rich history, numerous green areas and parks, a diverse range of services and traditional foods and drinks. Negative comments were related to cleanliness, big crowds and smoking in public places. The capital’s nightlife also received very high marks from 92 percent of respondents, followed by restaurants and cafes, which also received a positive rating from 91 percent of tourists. Satisfaction with Belgrade’s cultural life was reported by 81 percent of tourists, while 72 percent were happy with shopping and 66 percent were satisfied with the prices and quality of public transportation in the city. The survey also considered ways of booking accommodation in and trips to Belgrade. “Given that 65 percent of tourists made their bookings online through the website of the Tourist Organisation of Belgrade, which is already available in seven languages and includes a brochure on Belgrade in Japanese, a browser will soon be installed to make it possible for Belgrade accommodation bookings to be made online,” Veselinov said, noting that last year about 572,000 tourists stayed in Belgrade and the city generated revenue of €1.6 million from tourist taxes alone. Interestingly, almost half of tourists knew about the capital before they came to visit; around 22 percent had heard about Belgrade through friends and relatives, while Belgrade’s most frequent guests come from Germany, Italy, the U.S., Spain, Austria and Greece. The results of this survey are encouraging and indicate the necessary direction for developing the city’s tourist offer. A Power Point presentation with graphs of the results was shown at a press conference, as was a film about the survey that was made by the Tourism Organisation of Belgrade, in cooperation with TV Studio B.

ISTRAŽIVANJE TURISTIČKE ORGANIZACIJE BEOGRADA

TURISTI O BEOGRADU – VIŠE NEGO POZITIVNO

V

iše je pokazatelja koji govore u prilog brzom razvoju Beograda kao turističke destinacije. Mnogi svetski mediji proglasili su Beograd za prestonicu noćnog života, grad se dobro plasira i kao poželjna city break destinacija i kao centar poslovnog i kongresnog turizma, u Beograd dolazi sve veći broj turista na kruzerima... Kako bi poboljšala ponudu i pokušala da sagleda složeni mozaik koji sačinjava sliku turističke vrednosti jednog grada, Turistička organizacija Beograda je, u saradnji sa Zavodom za informatiku i statistiku, sprovela istraživanje sa nazivom Ocena turističke ponude Beograda. Ovo je jedan od mnogih projekata koji, pod rukovodstvom Ljiljane Alajbegović, sprovodi i implementira Sektor za razvoj i marketing TOB-a, a fokus je svakako na projektima istraživanja tržišta kojima je cilj unapređivanje turističke ponude našeg grada. Rezultati istraživanja Ocena turističke ponude Beograda pokazali su da je prosečan turista koji dođe u Beograd muškarac, da je mlađi od 35 godina i da tokom tri dana potroši oko 612 evra, a za svoje zadovoljstvo boravkom daje visoku ocenu! Istraživanje se bavilo ispitivanjem zadovoljstva u raznim segmentima ponude Beograda. Kada je reč o raznovrsnosti turističkih atrakcija, 86% ispitanika dalo je dobru ocenu, u domenu smeštaja 74% je dobru ocenu dalo hotelima, 3% odsto manje hostelima, dok je na začelju privatni smeštaj. Predstavljajući rezultate ovog istraživanja, direktor TOB-a Dejan Veselinov istakao je da se najjači utisci turista vezuju za ljubaznost Beograđana, bogatu istoriju, veliki broj zelenih površna i parkova, raznovrstan asortiman usluga i tradicionalne hrane i pića. Negativni komentari vezani su za čistoću, veliku gužvu i pušenje na javnim mestima. Noćni život prestonice takođe je dobio veoma visoku ocenu, od 92% ispitanika, slede restorani i kafei, koji su dobili dobru ocenu od 91% anketiranih turista. Zadovoljstvo kulturnim životom Beograda iskazalo je 81% , šopingom 72%, a cenom i kvalitetom prevoza 66%

turista. Istraživanje se bavilo i pitanjem načina rezervacije smeštaja i boravka u Beogradu. „Budući da je 65% turista rezervacije izvršilo putem interneta, na sajtu Turističke organizacije Beograda, koji je već dostupan na sedam svetskih jezika, uključujući i brošuru o Beogradu na japanskom jeziku, uskoro će biti postavljen i pretraživač preko kojeg će biti moguća onlajn rezervacija smeštaja u gradu,” rekao je Veselinov i podsetio da je prošle godine u Beogradu boravilo oko 572.000 turista i da je grad samo od turističke takse ostvario prihod od 1,6 miliona evra. Zanimljivo je i da je gotovo polovina turista znala za prestonicu i pre nego što je došla u posetu, oko 22 odsto je za Beograd čulo od prijatelja i rođaka, a najčešći gosti Beograda dolaze iz Nemačke, Italije, SAD, Španije, Austrije i Grčke. Rezultati istraživanja ohrabruju i pokazuju smer u kojem je potrebno razvijati turističku ponudu Beograda. Na konferenciji za novinare prikazana je power point prezentacija sa grafikonima rezultata, i film o ovom istraživanju, koji je Turistička organizacija Beograda uradila u saradnji sa TV Studio B.

Meet Serbia

Aranđelovac is a small town in Šumadija – a region that is not dubbed “the heart of Serbia” without good reason. It was in this pleasant landscape that the modern Serbian state was created. Serbian rulers Miloš and Mihailo Obrenović are responsible for launching modern development of the Bukovačka spa in Aranđelovac, which during two centuries of existence had true “stellar moments”. Today, with its historical and contemporary buildings, it attracts tourists seeking refreshment and a fulfilling holiday. On the following pages we will also preview for you the great European celebration of “17 centuries from the proclamation of the Edict of Milan”. Niš - the hometown of Emperor Constantine - is on the map of cities where many outstanding projects will represent this great epoch.

Upoznajte Srbiju

Aranđelovac je mali grad u Šumadiji - oblasti koja se, ne bez razloga, naziva „srcem Srbije“. U ovom pitomom krajoliku nastala je moderna srpska država. Vladari Srbije – Miloš i Mihailo Obrenović zaslužni su za početak razvoja Bukovičke banje u Aranđelovcu, koja je tokom dva veka postojanja imala istinske „zvezdane trenutke“. Danas, sa svojom istorijskim i savremenim zdanjima, privlači turiste željne okrepljenja i sadržajnog odmora. Na narednim stranicama najavljujemo vam i veliku evropsku proslavu „17 vekova od proglašenja Milanskog edikta“. Niš - rodni grad cara Konastantina - nalazi se na mapi gradova u kojima će se mnogim izvanrednim projekatima predstaviti ova velika epoha.

here is a belief that for centuries Serbian churches and monasteries were built only in places of exquisite beauty and importance. It enough simply to recall any churchyard view for us to easily and quickly agree with the choices of Serbia’s rulers and benefactors. History records that Prince Miloš Obrenović, having been convinced of the healing powers of the Bukovica waters, decided to erect a church in the village of Vrbica in 1858 and dedicate it to the Holy Archangel Gabriel, as well as taking of

There is no better spice than a blend of tradition, art and nature, which, united with human ability, forms beauty. It is these very ingredients that characterise Aranđelovac. Of course, beauty is always medicinal, just like the water of the Bukovička Banja spa. As a tourist centre, Aranđelovac appears in the tourist offer of Serbia with a diverse and rounded offer. the village of Vrbica, Bukovik, and making it into the town of Aranđelovac. Long before that, back in 1811, Dositej Obradović improved his health with Bukovica sparkling water. Reading the history of Aranđelovac today, we could quite confidently exclaim: Let there be water, because it was precisely around the Bukovica mineral springs, and thanks to their healing qualities, that Aranđelovac grew to form into a town, which has the rare feature of having a spa – the Bukovička Banja – at its centre. The town and spa are surrounded by the moun-

tain ranges of Bukulja and Venčac, and Lake Garaši – all of which add their special offers to the life of Aranđelovac THE SPA The town repaid the great prince in its own special way. In the first decade of the 20th century, the hand bottling of the Bukovica mineral water began at the “Knjaz Miloš” pavilion, which was erected over the spring of the same name.

Today it uses the most advanced therapeutic methods of treatment based on mineral water, clay and climate. In the recreation block, in addition to standard hydrotherapeutic procedures, there is a swimming pool with a whirlpool bath and underwater massage, sauna, hydrokinetic showers, shower massage with variable pressure and temperatures, mud baths and a fitness club.

ONE HOTEL, ONE DREAM The luxury hotel “Izvor” (Spring) will enchant its guests with its harmonious architecture, modern interior and the highest level of service and facilities, of which we would highlight the wellness centre with its nine swimming pools boasting natural, healing, mineral water. Towards the end of last year’s season an aqua-park was unveiled. Its special magic of “water and games” attracts many tourists to Aranđelovac. national festival of arts “Marble and Sounds”. The embodiment of that great idea and of the Symposium “White Venčac”, which brought the world’s finest sculptural art to this town, are the sculptures of white Venčac marble displayed among the greenery of the park, forming one of the most beautiful museums of sculptures under an open sky. One may calmly compare it to some famous sculpture parks worldwide, such as those in Spoleto, Otterlo in the Netherlands or Houston and Forvert in Texas. The land for the park was purchased in 1849 and it was then that the first trails were marked, trees were planted and the spring and Talpara bathroom were arranged. Setting up the park in the modern sense of the word began in 1856, when the paths were cut, the tree lanes, lawns and flower gardens were planted, and when the Đulara hot bath was set up. Interestingly, the water in this bath was heated with hot cannonballs, after which the bathroom was named. People believed that the hot cannon ammunition improved the water quality and made the treatment far more effective.

THE PLINTH OF THE STATUE OF LIBERTY It remained noted that the first use of Venčac white marble as sculptural material related to the sculpture of the “Lion”, which is still located in the Aranđelovac park. Many monuments and sculptures have been made of white stone from Venčac over the years, such as Vuk Karadžić’s life-size monument in Topola, but also the squares and monuments of New York, Paris, Moscow, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Rome... This stone decorates the façades and interiors of one of the wings of the White House in Washington D.C., the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York City, as well as airports and museums in Belgrade, Cairo and Tokyo.

INTERESTING PLACES AROUND ARANĐELOVAC ORAŠAC The village of Orašac near Aranđelovac is the site of the agreement to launch the First Serbian Uprising and declare Karađorđe Petrović the supreme leader, on the holy day of Sretenje (Candlemas), on 15th February 1804. In memory of this great event, the Ascension Church, a memorial school and a memorial fountain were erected in the Marićevića Jaruga ravine, as was the museum and a sculpture of Karađorđe, making up a memorial complex for the great and historic event that brought the Serbian people national freedom and initiated the creation of Serbia as a modern European state. BUKULJA Mount Bukulja overlooks Aranđelovac. Its height of 696 metres makes it ideal for high altitude athletic training. Marked hiking trails, which start from the spa park, lead to the very top. At the top Bukulja an observation point is open for visitors. At 19 metres high it offers a magnificent view of a large part of Šumadija. LAKE GARAŠI At the foot of the mountain Bukulja is the accumulation lake Garaši, just six kilometres away from the town. The lake is well stocked with fish and offers excellent conditions for fishing. Next to the lake facilities for football and volleyball have been installed and there is a restaurant. OPLENAC In nearby Topola, Karađorđe’s town, his residence and church still remain, while Oplenac hill is dominated by harmony and charm of the astonishing monumental church of Saint George, the endowment of King Petar I Karađorđević. Its mosaics, copies of the most beautiful frescoes of medieval Serbian churches and monasteries, are made of 40,000,000 glass tiles in 15,000 colours. In the crypt of the Oplenac church, which was converted into a mausoleum and opened to visitors in the middle of the last century, lie the remains of the members of the Karađorđević dynasty. WINERY VRBICA At the spot where the southern slopes of the Orašac and Vrbica hills meet, in the Venčac vineyards, is the Vrbica Winery, which continues a tradition of growing vines and making wine that dates back more than a hundred years. The restaurant located right in the middle of the vineyard is a perfect place to taste local wines and superb cuisine.

In the 1870s, during the reign of Prince Mihailo Obrenović, the Bukovička Banja spa became one of the best-developed spa centres and it retained renown as the best spa of a European rank until the outbreak of the First World War. The old edifice, the oldest preserved building in the Bukovička Banja park, is a representative example of Serbian Romanticist architecture. Prince Mihailo Obrenović began its construction in 1865 as a summer residence and assembly house. Carrying the traces of the past, a visible harmony and the beauty of its time, the old edifice is still awaiting restoration. In Aranđelovac it is as though everything has felt some sort of wonderful touch, like the famous paintingbyMichelangelointheSistineChapel.Overthecourse of history, this was the place where the royal dynasties of Obrenović and Karadjordjević touched, in Aranđelovac and the nearby Topola. From the observation point on Bukulja, one can see the touch of an endless sky and waving slopes where the harmony of the landscape is hiding. A touch of white stone and green nature adds harmony to the view of the park, while the picture is completed by the sound of water. Come, touch this town. Although surrounded by the white Venčac quarry, its heart is not made of stone. DRAGANA MARKOVIĆ photographs: DARIMIR BANDA


POSTOLJE ZA SPOMENIK SLOBODE Ostalo je zabeleženo da je prva upotreba venčačkog belog mermera kao skulptorskog materijala upravo vezana za sklupturu „Lava“, koji se i danas nalazi u aranđelovačkom parku. Mnogi spomenici i skulpture izrađeni su tokom godina od belog kamena sa Venčaca, poput biste Vuka Karadžića u prirodnoj veličini, spomenika u Topoli, ali i trgova i spomenika Njujorka, Pariza, Moskve, Amsterdama, Buenos Ajresa, Rima... Ovim kamenom ukrašeni su fasade i enterijeri jednog krila Bele kuće u Vašingtonu, postolje spomenika „Sloboda“ u Njujorku i aerodromi i muzeji u Beogradu, Kairu, Tokiju.

Gavrilu, a od dela sela Vrbice sa delom sela Bukovik formira varoš Aranđelovac. Mnogo pre toga, još 1811. godine, Dositej Obradović je svoje zdravlje krepio bukovičkom kiselom vodom. Čitajući danas istoriju Aranđelovca, sasvim bismo samouvereno mogli da uzviknemo: I bi voda, jer se upravo oko bukovičkih mineralnih izvora, zahvaljujući njihovoj lekovitosti, oblikovao grad Aranđelovac, u čijem je samom središtu, što je prilična retkost, banja – Bukovička. Grad i banju svojim planinskim masivom uokviruju Bukulja i Venčac, jezerskom vodom Garaši – dodajući životu Aranđelovca svoje posebne sadržaje.

The Old Edifice today

Nema lepših začina od spoja tradicije, umetnosti i prirode, koji, sjedinjeni sa ljudskim umećem, tvore lepotu. Upravo se tim sastojcima odlikuje Aranđelovac. Naravno, lepota je uvek lekovita, kao što je to i voda Bukovičke banje. Kao turistički centar, Aranđelovac se nameće u turističkoj ponudi Srbije raznovrsnim i zaokruženim sadržajem.

P

ostoji uverenje da su srpske crkve i manastiri građeni vekovima na mestima izuzetne lepote i značaja. Dovoljno je tek da se prisetimo bilo kog pogleda iz crkvenih porti pa ćemo se lako i brzo složiti sa izborom srpskih vladara i zadužbinara. Zabeleženo je u istoriji da je knez Miloš Obrenović, uverivši se u lekovitost

bukovičke vode, odlučio da u selu Vrbici, 1858. godine, podigne crkvu i posveti je Svetom Arhanđelu

BANJA Na svoj način grad se odužio velikom knjazu. U prvoj deceniji prošlog veka počinje ručno flaširanje bukovičke kisele vode u paviljonu „Knjaz Miloš“, podignutom nad istoimenim izvorom. Prvu stručnu analizu lekovitih svojstava bukovičke vode uradio je doktor Lindermajer, načelnik saniteta Knjaževine Srbije, da bi ona kasnije, kao stona voda, bila nagrađena najvećim međunarodnim priznanjima za kvalitet u Briselu, Varni, Londonu... Specijalna bolnica za rehabilitaciju „Bukovička banja“ baštini iskustvo korišćenja blagotvornih svojstva bukovičke vode. Danas se ovde na bazi lekovite vode, gline i klime, primenjuju najsavremenije terapijske metode lečenja. U rekreacionom bloku, pored standardnih hidroterapijskih procedura, postoje bazen sa đakuzi kup-

Hotel Izvor NE GAZI ZASTAVU, LAVE! Autor skulpture „Lava“ je Piter Ginter, austrougarski oficir u vreme Prvog svetskog rata. Po zamisli i naređenju austrougarskih vlasti lav - simbol Austrougarske monarhije – gazio je srpsku zastavu. Klesanje skulpture započeto je 1916. godine, ali se autoru nije žurilo, te su radovi trajali sve do kraja rata. Sa završetkom rata i porazom Monarhije uklonjena je srpska zastava, pa „Lav” od tada gazi samo po travi parka.

GRAD OD MERMERA Banjski park, koji je ujedno srce grada, posebna je vrednost Aranđelovca. Već skoro 50 godina u ovom gradu održava se međunarodna smotra umetnosti „Mermer i zvuci“.

JEDAN HOTEL, JEDAN SAN Luksuzni hotel Izvor svoje goste očaraće skladnom arhitekturom, modernim enterijerom i najvišim nivoom usluge i sadržaja, iz koga posebno izdvajamo Wellness centar sa devet bazena, sa prirodnom, lekovitom, termomineralnom vodom. Pred sam kraj prošlogodišnje sezone otvoren je akva-park, koji posebnom magijom „vode i igara“ privlači u Aranđelovac mnogobrojne turiste. Otelotvorenje te sjajne ideje i Simpozijuma „Beli venčac“, koji su gradu doneli vrhunsku vajarsku umetnost iz celog sveta, jesu skulpture od belog venčačkog mermera, koje razmeštene po zelenilu parka, tvore jedan od najlepših skulptorskih muzeja pod otvorenim nebom. On se mirne duše može porediti sa nekoliko čuvenih svetskih parkova skulpture, poput onih u Spoletu, Oterlou u Holandiji ili Hjustonu i Forvertu u Teksasu. Zemljište za park kupljeno je još 1849. godine i tada su obeležene prve staze, zasađeno drveće, uređen izvor i kupatiloTalpara. Podizanje parka u

današnjem smislu te reči počelo je 1856. godine, kada su prosečene staze, obrazovani drvoredi, zasejani travnjaci i cvetnjaci i uređeno toplo kupatilo Đulara. Zanimljivo je da se u ovom kupatilu voda zagrevala užarenom đuladi, po čemu je kupatilo i dobilo ime. Ljudi su verovali da ova vrela topovska municija poboljšava kvalitet vode i lečenje čini daleko delotvornijim. Sedamdesetih godina 19. veka, za vreme vladavine kneza Mihaila Obrenovića, Bukovička banja postaje jedno od najbolje uređenih banjskih mesta, a renome najbolje banje ,,evropejskog” ranga zadržava do izbijanja Prvog svetskog rata. Staro zdanje, najstariji sačuvan objekat u parku Bukovičke banje, reprezentativni primer arhitekture srpskog romantizma, počeo je da gradi knez Mihailo Obrenović 1865. godine, kao letnju rezidenciju i skupštinski dom. Noseći tragove prošlosti, vidljiv sklad i lepotu svog vremena, Staro zdanje danas čeka restauraciju. INTIMNI PANSIONI I VILE Mogućnosti za smeštaj u Aranđelovcu su raznovrsne, od različitih hotela, do banjskih vila, smeštenih uglavnom na samom obodu ili u blizini banjskog parka, koje tradicionalno nude kvalitetan smeštaj, dopadljive enterijere i intimnost brižljivo uređenih dvorišta, poput apartmana „Nedeljković“, Vile „Sokol“, Vile „Mila“, Vile „Biljana“, Pansiona 13A...


ZANIMLJIVA MESTA U OKOLINI ARANĐELOVCA

U Aranđelovcu je sve u nekom čudesnom dodiru, poput čuvene Mikelanđelove slike iz Sikstinske kapele. Na ovom prostoru su se tokom istorije dodirivale dinastije Obrenovića u Aranđelovcu i Karađorđevića u obližnjoj Topoli. Sa osmatračnice na Bukulji vidljiv je taj dodir beskrajnog neba i zatalasanih obronaka u kojima se sakriva harmonija pejzaža. Dodir beline kamena i zelenila prirode dodaje sklad pogledu na park, dok sliku upotpunjuje šum vode. Dođite, dodirnite ovaj grad. Iako okružen majdanom belog venčaca, njemu srce nikako nije od kamena. DRAGANA MARKOVIĆ fotografije: DARIMIR BANDA

ORAŠAC Selo Orašac nadomak Aranđelovca mesto je dogovora o podizanju Prvog srpskog ustanka i proglašenja Karađorđa Petrovića za vrhovnog vožda, na Sretenje, 15. februara 1804. godine. U znak sećanja na ovaj veliki događaj, podignuti su Crkva Vaznesenja Gospodnjeg, spomen-škola i spomen-česma u Marićevića jaruzi, muzej i skulptura Karađorđa, te je tako formiran spomenički kompleks u spomen velikom istorijskom događaju koji je srpskom narodu doneo nacionalnu slobodu i pokrenuo stvaranje Srbije kao moderne evropske države. BUKULJA Planina Bukulja natkriljuje Aranđelovac. Visina od 696 m čini je idealnom za visinske pripreme sportskih ekipa. Do samog vrha vode obeležene pešačke staze, koje kreću iz banjskog parka. Na vrhu Bukulje je za posetioce otvorena osmatračnica visine 19 m, sa koje se pruža veličanstven pogled na veliki deo Šumadije. JEZERO GARAŠI Akumulaciono jezero Garaši u podnožju planine Bukulje udaljeno je od grada svega šest kilometara. Jezero je dobro poribljeno i pruža izvanredne uslove za bavljenje ribolovom. Kraj jezera izgrađeni su tereni za mali fudbal i odbojku na pesku, te restoran. OPLENAC U obližnjoj Topoli, Karađorđevom gradu, i danas postoje njegov konak i crkva, dok na oplenačkom brdu dominira, a skladom i čistotom linija zadivljuje monumentalna Crkva Sv. Đorđa, zadužbina kralja Petra I Karađorđevića. Njeni mozaici, kopije najlepših fresaka srpskih srednjovekovnih crkava i manastira, sazdani su od 40.000.000 staklenih kockica u 15.000 boja. U kripti oplenačke crkve, pretvorene u mauzolej i otvorene za posetioce sredinom prošlog veka, sahranjeni su članovi dinastije Karađorđević. VINARIJA VRBICA Na mestu spajanja južnih padina Orašačkog i Vrbičkog brda, u Venčačkom vinogorju, nalazi se Vinarija „Vrbica“, koja nastavlja tradiciju gajenja vinove loze i spravljanja vina staru više od stotinu godina. Restoran smešten usred vinograda pravo je mesto za degustaciju domaćih vina, ali i vrhunske kuhinje.

THE TOURISM ORGANISATION OF SERBIA RECOMMENDS – THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF ARANĐELOVAC

Exhibition display of the “World of Ceramics”

THE FLOW OF ŠUMADIJA’S TIME A sovereign mirror of the interesting past of rich cultural life and the creative art scene of the Aranđelovac area is represented by its heritage museum. The National Museum in Aranđelovac preserves and exhibits numerous artefacts from the fields of palaeontology, archaeology, ethnology, history and art history. Aside from the permanent standing exhibition, visitors to this museum can also see a unique exhibition of great works of contemporary ceramic art.

T

he construction of Aranđelovac’s National Museum began in 1982 according to the design of Belgrade architect Feliks Bajlon, in the style of an old Šumadija house, or rather a single-piece wooden house with a chimney in the middle of the roof on four waters. Its first solo exhibition opened in 1985. At that time the gallery space was already being used for retrospective exhibitions of the international World of Ceramics festival, guest exhibitions of other museums, within the auspices of the festival of Marble and Sounds, as well as for themed museum exhibitions.

Over time the museum grew into a complex institution. It has carried its contemporary title since 2008. In addition to its own collections, the National Museum also covers the Risovača Cave, as well as the house of Ilija Milošević - a cultural heritage site better known as the Ethno household. THE AMAZING WORLD OF CERAMICS For sevel decades Aranđelovac has been home to the Marble and Sounds arts festival during the summer months. This event also includes the International White Venčac Symposium and the international World of Ceramics festival.


Not only do the Bukovička Banja park’s white stone sculptures enrich the space in which they are located, but they also testify to contemporary trends of Serbian and international sculptural art. UNESCO has recognised the White Venčac Symposium as one of the world’s most important international art events. Moreover, the World of Ceramics event offers a representative overview of the general state of this art form in Yugoslavia and Serbia during a period spanning almost 40 years! Since the first symposium in 1974, the collection of the National Museum of Ceramic Art has assembled more than 600 artwork exhibits by 258 local and foreign artists. All amplitudes, traces, experiments and political trends are integral parts of the Aranđelovac collection of ceramic art. Many recognised names in this field, with their earlier and later works, as well as artists whose primary medium is not ceramics, have left their impressions of the world in the musuem’s collection. Considering the complexity and size of the collection, only a small part is presented in the exhibition hall of the museum. Testifying to the notion that Yugoslav and Serbian ceramic art are part of the world’s art scene is the visible parallel with current leading European and world authors. The works of foreign artists have enriched the collection and the appearance of Colin Pearson will be remembered as the most important event of the festival. Moreover, the works of individual artists that emerged at this festival demonstrate that being part of this symposium represented a real change in their opus, uncovering their new strengths and new potentials, as well as awakening new visions.

CHILD OF THE EARTH, WATER, FIRE AND AIR Contemporary ceramic art is an attractive artistic discipline determined and unified by the four elements: earth, water, fire and air, because it requires earth and water to be shaped, needs air and fire to survive and needs art in order to reach to the sky. And that special component of the World of Ceramics has been added throughout the years by artists such as Paula Kaasinen, Velimir Vukićević Stariji, Mirjana Isaković, Božena Štih-Balen, Edit Merle, Delia Prvački, Nadežda Aksentijević, Larisa Ackov, Dobromir Georgijev, Nemanja Nikolić, Velja Vukićević, Biljana Milenović, Branislav Spasojčević, Antonija Dragutinović, Biljana Lana Rakanović, Evgenija Portnoj, Lana Tikveša, Nebojša Stojković, Olgica Jelić Kucina, Valentina Savić et al. Most of the works were done in chamotte clay (stoneware) and porcelain. THE WORLD OF THE CRETACEOUS AGE – RISOVAČA CAVE At the entrance to Aranđelovac, on the right side of the River Kubršnica, stands the Risovača Hill with its cave of the same name, which is an important archaeological and paleontological site. An interesting fact is that the cave was discovered completely by accident. Namely, the site included a quarry and sometime around 1950 part of the hill collapsed to reveal the cave behind it. Unfortunately, blasting at the quarry destroyed the entrance to the cave, which would have been very important for scientific research. The geologists soon established the cave’s age: Risovača dates back to the Cretaceous Age! Years of research within the cave led to the discoveries of many fossilised bones and teeth of animals that lived on the nearby steppes during the last

Ice Age. Through studies of these fossils, palaeontologists discovered that at least twenty species of mammal had lived in the vicinity of the cave during the last Ice Age. Some of these species still live in the region, such as the brown bear, wolf, fox, rabbit and beaver, while some have been wiped from the face of our planet forever, such as the cave bear, cave lion, cave hyena, mammoth, steppe bison, steppe rhinoceros etc. Discoveries of stone and bone tools confirm that the Risovača Cave was inhabited by Neanderthal hunters during the middle of the Old Stone Age. Because of its natural features and cultural and historical values, the cave was declared a monument of nature and a cultural heritage site of great importance. Some of the cave’s areas are accessible to visitors, but others are accessible only by professional cavers even today. They also examined 160 metres of the cave’s chamber. The cave starts in the Archaeological canal, continues through the Canal of Ice Age fauna that leads to the Optimistic Hall, from which the upward Cascade canal leads to the biggest extension – the Amber Room. By far the biggest and most distant chamber that scientists have explored is called the Hall of the Risovača Man, which has two lateral extensions:Vesna’s and Snowy’s chorale rooms. Today the Risovača Cave is arranged according to all principles of modern presentation and receives thousands of domestic and foreign visitors annually. It is one of the oldest archaeological sites in the Balkans, but is also a kind of a time machine – a profound journey towards understanding the Earth. DRAGANA MARKOVIĆ photographs: DARIMIR BANDA

TOS PREPORUČUJE – NARODNI MUZEJ ARANĐELOVAC

TOK VREMENA ŠUMADIJE Suvereno ogledalo zanimljive prošlosti, sadržajnog kulturnog života i kreativne umetničke scene aranđelovačkog kraja predstavlja njegov matični muzej. Narodni muzej u Aranđelovcu čuva i izlaže brojne eksponate iz oblasti paleontologije, arheologije, etnologije, istorije i istorije umetnosti. Pored stalne izložbene postavke, posetioci u Muzeju mogu videti i jedinstvenu izložbu ostvarenja savremene umetničke keramike.

G

radnja zgrade aranđelovačkog Narodnog muzeja započeta je 1982. godine, po idejnom rešenju Feliksa Bajlona, arhitekte iz Beograda, u stilu stare šumadijske kuće, tačnije, jednodelne kuće brvnare sa odžaklijom u sredini i krovom na četiri vode. Prva samostalna izložba otvorena je 1985. godine. Galerijski prostor je već u to vreme korišćen za retrospektivne izložbe Međunarodnog festivala „Svet keramike“, za izložbe drugih muzeja, izložbe u okviru Smotre „Mermer i zvuci“, te za muzejske tematske izložbe.

svoje zbirke, Narodni muzej se stara o Risovačkoj pećini i okućnici Ilije Miloševića, kulturnom dobru poznatijem kao Etno-domaćinstvo. ZADIVLJUJUĆI SVET KERAMIKE U Aranđelovcu se već nekoliko decenija, tokom letnjih meseci, održava Smotra umetnosti „Mermer i zvuci“, u okviru koje traju Međunarodni simpozijum skulpture „Beli Venčac“ i Međunarodni festival „Svet keramike’“. Skulpture od belog kamena u parku Bukovičke banje ne samo da oplemenjuju prostor u kome se nalaze već istovremeno svedoče i o razvoju naše i

svetske savremene vajarske umetnosti. Simpozijum „Beli Venčac“ Unesko je prepoznao kao jednu od najznačajnijih svetskih umetničkih manifestacija. Isto tako „Svet keramike“ nudi reprezentativni uvid u opšte stanje jugoslovenske i srpske umetničke scene tokom skoro 40 godina! Od prvog Simpozijuma iz 1974. godine do danas Kolekcija umetničke keramike Narodnog muzeja sabrala je više od 600 eksponata koji predstavljaju radove 258 domaćih i stranih umetnika. Sve amplitude, traganja, eksperimenti i nanosi politike sastavni su deo aranđelovačke zbirke umetničke keramike. Mnoga afirmisana imena u ovoj oblasti,


njihovi rani i kasniji radovi, te umetnici kojima keramika nije primarni medij, ostavili su svoja viđenja sveta zbirci muzeja. U odnosu na slojevitost i veličinu zbirke, tek mali njen deo predstavljen je u izložbenom prostoru Muzeja. O tome koliko je jugoslovenska i srpska umetnost keramike deo svetske umetničke scene svedoči vidljiva paralela sa vodećim evropskim i svetskim autorima. Dela inostranih umetnika obogatila su Zbirku, a pojava Kolina Pirsona ostaće zabeležena kao najznačajniji događaj Festivala. S druge strane, radovi pojedinih umetnika nastali na ovoj smotri pokazuju da je boravak na Simpozijumu predstavljao pravi preokret u njihovom opusu. Otkrio im je novu snagu, nove potencijale, razbudio nove vizije. ČEDO ZEMLJE, VODE, VATRE I VAZDUHA Savremena umetnička keramika je atraktivna umetnička disciplina, a određuju je i objedinjuju četiri elementa: zemlja, voda, vatra i vazduh, jer da bi bila oblikovana, potrebne su joj zemlja i voda, da bi opstala, vazduh i vatra, a da bi dosegla nebo, potrebna joj je umetnost. A taj posebni sastojak „Svetu keramike“ dodavali su godinama umetnici kao što su Paula Kaasinen, Velimir Vukićević Stariji, Mirjana Isaković, Božena Štih-Balen, Edit Merle, Delia Prvački, Nadežda Aksentijević, Larisa Ackov, Dobromir Georgijev, Nemanja Nikolić, Velja Vukićević, Biljana Milenović, Branislav Spasojčević, Antonija Dragutinović, Biljana Lana Rakanović, Evgenija Portnoj, Lana Tikveša, Nebojša Stojković, Olgica Jelić Kucina, Valentina Savić… Najveći broj radova izveden je u šamotiranoj glini (kamenina) i porcelanu SVET IZ DOBA KREDE – PEĆINA RISOVAČA Na ulazu u Aranđelovac, sa desne strane rečice Kubršnice, uzdiže se brdo Risovača sa istoimenom pećinom, značajnim arheološkim i paleontološkim nalazištem. Zanimljiv podatak je da je pećina sasvim

slučajno otkrivena. Naime, na tom istom mestu postojao je kamenolom: negde 1950. godine srušen je jedan deo brda, a iza njega se ukazala pećina. Nažalost, miniranje u kamenolomu uništilo je ulazni deo pećine, veoma značajan za naučna istraživanja. Starost pećine ubrzo su utvrdili geolozi: Risovača potiče iz vremena krede! Dugogodišnjim istraživanjima u pećini je otkriveno mnoštvo fosilizovanih kostiju i zuba životinja koje su za vreme poslednjeg ledenog doba živele na obližnjim stepama. Izučavanjem tih fosila paleontolozi su utvrdili da je u ledeno doba u okolini pećine živelo najmanje 20 vrsta sisara. Neke od tih vrsta i danas žive na ovom podneblju, poput mrkog medveda, vuka, lisice, zeca, dabra, a neke su zauvek nestale sa lica naše planete, poput pećinskog medveda, pećinskog lava, pećinske hijene, mamuta, stepskog bizona, stepskog nosoroga… Pronađene kamene i koštane alatke potvrđuju da je Risovačka pećina u srednjem razdoblju starijeg kamenog doba bila stanište neandertalskih lovaca. Zbog svojih prirodnih osobenosti i kulturnoistorijskih vrednosti pećina je proglašena spome-

nikom prirode i kulturnim dobrom od izuzetnog značaja. Pojedini pećinski prostori pristupačni su posetiocima, ali postoje delovi u koje i danas mogu stići samo speleolozi. Oni su i istražili 160 metara pećinskog kanala. Pećina počinje Arheološkim kanalom, nastavlja se Kanalom faune ledenog doba, koji vodi u Optimističku dvoranu, iz koje uzlazni Kaskadni kanal vodi do najvećeg proširenja – Ćilibarske sobe. Najdalja i najveća prostorija koju su naučnici do sada istražili zove se Dvorana risovačkog čoveka, koja ima dva bočna proširenja – Vesninu i Snežnu koralnu sobu. Danas je Risovačka pećina uređena po svim principima savremene prezentacije i godišnje primi hiljade posetilaca iz zemlje i inostranstva. Jedno je od najstarijih arheoloških nalazišta na Balkanskom poluostrvu, ali je isto tako i svojevrsni vremeplov – dubok hod ka poimanju Zemlje. DRAGANA MARKOVIĆ fotografije: DARIMIR BANDA

Oblast Donjeg Podunavlja jedna je od najlepših u Srbiji – kroz njene predele protiče moćni Dunav, a iznad njegovih obala izdižu se lanci prekrasnih planina. Hotelsko turističko preduzeće „Plaža“, u čijem se sastavu nalaze hotel Aquastar Danube i istoimena turistička agencija, posebnu pažnju poklanja lovnom i ribolovnom turizmu. Na otvaranju ovogodišnje lovne sezone ugošćena je grupa iz Skandinavije, a u maju, septembru, oktobru i decembru očekuju se nove grupe lovaca.

S

poslovnom filozofijom zasnovanom na načelu „Biti najbolji“, u jesen 2008. godine u Kladovu je otvoren hotelski kompleks Aquastar Danube. Hotel, pored kvalitetnog smeštaja, ima i vrhunski osmišljen Welness i Spa centar. Centar ima bazen sa slanom vodom, saune, đakuzi, masažere i dobro opremljenu teretanu. Svesni činjenice da je i za ponudu samog hotela, ali i za ukupnu turističku ponudu Dunava izuzetno važna brodska veza, HTP Plaža se odlučila na još jedan poslovni poduhvat: izgradila je moderan turistički brod Aquastar Maksim, koji će od ove sezone ploviti fascinatnom Đerdapskom klisurom i povezivati Beograd i Tekiju. Razvijajući široku lepezu ponude – od individualnog do konferencijskog turizma, HTP Plaža je posebnu pažnju posvetila izuzetnim prirodnim vrednostima ovog kraja, pre svega bogatstvu

obližnjeg Nacionalnog parka Đerdap, koji je poznat kao izvanredno lovište. U stoletnim hrastovim i bukovim šumama žive jeleni, srndaći, divlje svinje, kune, zečevi... Divljač je oprezna, tako da ovde lov „ima svojstva pravog iskonskog doživljaja“. Lovišta su bogata krupnom i sitnom divljači, od čega se izdvajaju visokotrofejni primerci jelena, srndaća, muflona i divlje svinje. Obilje ribe ne zaostaje: som, PROFESIONALNA AGENCIJSKA PONUDA Najveći kvalitet nove ponude je odlična organizacija, koja podrazumeva transfere hotelskim shuttl busom, angažovanje profesionalnih vodiča i izuzetno kvalitetan smeštaj u hotelu Aquastar Danube. Agencija Aquastar travel obezbeđuje svu potrebnu logistiku, od pozivnih pisama pa do procedura oko carinjenja oružja i lovačkog pribora.

smuđ, štuka, kečiga, šaran. Ovi krajevi su pravi eldorado za sve ljubitelje prirode, a posebno za lovce i ribolovce. Lovišta kao što su Vratna, Alija, Deli Jovan i Miroč - Štrbac predstavljaju izazov za lovce koji imaju visoke standarde kada su u pitanju trofeji visokog ranga. U saradnji sa JP Srbijašume i Nacionalnim parkom Đerdap, HTP Plaža je napravila posebnu ponudu, koja je već privukla ekskluzivnu lovačku klijentelu.

NI Š – A CELEBR AT ION OF 17 C E NT UR IE S OF T HE E D IC T OF M IL A N

EMPEROR CONSTANTINE’S PERMANENT SEAL Next year marks 1700 years since the promulgation of the Edict of Milan – the imperial act of religious tolerance, by which Christians gained the right to freely practice their religion in 313 AD. Niš, as the hometown of Emperor Constantine the Great, is on the list of European cities where this great anniversary will be celebrated.

P

reparations for Niš’s celebration of the anniversary of the Edict of Milan are ongoing full steam ahead. “Within the context of the anniversary of the Edict of Milan, two new churches will be consecrated: the Orthodox Church of Saint Emperor Constantine and Empress Jelena and the Roman Catholic Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. The main ceremony will be

preceded by an international scientific conference entitled “Niš and Byzantium,” while the premiere of the oratorio “Constantine Magnus” is planned for 3rd June. In the following years this musical-theatrical work should be performed in all cities linked to the life and times of Constantine the Great: Milan, Trier, York, Arles and Petronella KornutTurkish Izmit, formerly Nicomedia. The monograph

“City of Constantine – the Old Christian Niš” is also being prepared. One of the most important events will certainly be the large exhibition entitled “The Time of Emperor Constantine”, which will present original exhibits from ancient archaeological sites,” says Vladimir Jovanović, director of the Tourism Organisation of Niš, speaking to BelGuest. In addition to decorative historical and cultur-


al buildings, Niš will also gain a monument to Emperor Constantine the Great. One of the city’s must-see sites related to Constantine the Great and the Roman era is the Mediana archaeological site, which covers a vast area of 80 hectares and is a valuable location testifying to the richness and glory of imperial Naissus. Mediana’s central focus certainly belongs to the villa with peristyle which was once a summer house of Constantine the Great. The composition of the villa indicates its ceremonial role. The visit of the emperor would start at the access path, capped with a monumental gate. The ceremonial access path led to a reception hall (consitorium) and a banquet hall (trichorum). Covering Constantine’s palace floors were mosaics with geometric motifs – some exceptional mosaics have been discovered at Mediana, such as those representing the Gorgon Medusa or the Water Deity. Mediana is certainly a must-see and an exciting part of getting acquainted with the ancient heritage of the life of Emperor Constantine the Great. 200,000-YEAR HISTORY In addition to its spiritual and cultural significance, this anniversary should also improve the tourist offer of Niš, which is the largest city in Serbia after Belgrade. The story of Niš dates back more than 200,000 years. It starts with the first traces of life in the Sićevac Gorge. The emergence of Niš was recorded in the book “Serbia – country

and population” by Balkanogist Felix Kanitz, who was the first to launch a study of ancient Naissus in 1850 and who wrote: “it is traditionally believed to have been built by the Prince of Niš with a stone from the nearby Humska čuka, while his sister Vida built the strong city of Vidin and the border between their two states was along the Nišava and Timok rivers.” Kanitz further noted that “Roman Naissus, Byzantine Nysos, Slavic Niš and German Nissa were named after the River Nišava, the Celtic Navissos,” which flows through it and, not far from the city, flows into the South Morava River. Dardanians settled this area around 350 BC and fought against the Romans for control of it for several decades. The last Roman invasion was led by Mark Antony. It gained the status of a Roman city – municipium – in the 2nd century AD, when it was first mentioned in written sources as Nais. Construction of the residential part of Mediana

Bronze railings with herma began a century later. Apart from Constantine the Great, Niš was also the hometown of Roman Emperor Constatius, while a hundred years later, Justinian, arguably the greatest Byzantine Emperor – builder, reformer and founder of the First Justiniana – was born in Lebane, in the vicinity of Niš. Other residents of ancient Niš included Diocletian and Constantine’s sons Constantius the Second and Kostans, while emperors Valerian I and Valens also issued their laws in the city... ATTRACTIVE AND STRONG MAN Emperor Constantine the Great – Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantius Augustus – was born, according to ancient records and historians, on 27th February, most probably in the year 273 AD, in a lush suburb of the Roman town of Nais in the province of Upper Moesia. Historical sources describe him as a “strong and good-looking” man. His father Constantius I, Marcus Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantius Herculius Augustus, commonly known as Constantius Chlorus, was a Dardanian by origin, while his mother Helena was from Drepanum – a place in the area of Bithynia, Asia Minor (modern Jalova in Turkey). Historians assume that Constantine stayed in Naissus with

his mother, while his father forged a successful military career and paved the way to the throne of the tetrarch – one of the co-rulers, Emperor Diocletian. At the age of 12, Constantine was sent to the palace of Diocletian in Nicomedia to prepare for a life in the military and state affairs. His rule is a historic milestone – he again turned the tetrarch into a monarchy and made a huge turn towards Christianity. In addition to often staying in Nais as a ruler, when choosing the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire Emperor Constantine nominated his hometown as “a new Rome”, alongside Jerusalem, Troy and Nicomedia, but the final choice was the small town of Vizantion, which was subsequently renamed Constantinople and is now known as Istanbul. THE EDICT OF MILAN AND A MONOGRAM OF CHRIST Co-emperors Licinius and Constantine met in February 313 AD in Milan. At that meeting an agreement was reached on religious matters from which, according to historians, stemmed the legend of the Edict of Milan – a document that was never published under that name. It is an agreement similar to an edict published on 30th April 311 AD in the Gallery Serdica (Sofia). Although

opinion among historians is divided on whether Constantine’s passing of the Edict of Milan was “an act of a believer in defending his faith” or “a wise statesman’s assessment that Christianity was a force that could restore the unity of the Empire,” the Church canonised him nonetheless. Eusebius, a contemporary of Constantine, recalls what the emperor told him personally: “One afternoon, the emperor said, when the sun had already begun falling towards the west, I saw with my own eyes the Lord’s Cross in the sky, made of stars which shone brighter than sun, and on the cross was written: “Win with this!” This sign is also known as the monogram of Christ, or labarum or hrizmon – a heavenly sign that Constantine saw in the face of victory at the battle with Maxentius. The Orthodox Church celebrates the feast of Saint Emperor Constantine and Empress Saint Helena on 3rd June according to the Gregorian calendar and on 21st May according to the Julian calendar, which is also the saint’s feast of the City of Niš. Constantine the Great is considered the first Christian emperor, a great benefactor and patron who helped massively to settle the situation within the Church. BelgUeST

TOURISM FEATURES OF NIŠ AND ITS SURROUNDINGS FOrTreSS One of the best-preserved city fortifications and the most beautiful example of Turkish military architecture in the central Balkans. Built between 1719 and 1730, it has been declared a cultural asset of great importance and includes Lapidarium, the Ancient Street – the remains from the ancient and Byzantine periods – as well as buildings from the Ottoman Empire, such as the Hammam, an arsenal, Bali beg mosque, the armoury and prison and a monument to Prince Milan Obrenović and the liberators of Niš.

NIŠ - PROSLAVA 17 VEKOVA MILANSKOG EDIKTA

TRAJNI PEČAT CARA KONSTANTINA Naredne godine navršava se čitavih 1700 godina od proglašenja Milanskog edikta – carskog akta o verskoj toleranciji, kojim su 313. godine nove ere hrišćani stekli pravo slobodnog ispovedanja vere. Niš, kao rodni grad cara Kostantina Velikog, nalazi se na listi evropskih gradova u kojima će se proslavljati ovaj veliki jubilej.

P

riprema za proslavu godišnjice Milanskog edikta u Nišu uveliko traju. „U sklopu obeležavanja godišnjice Milanskog edikta biće osveštane dve nove crkve – pravoslavna Svetog cara Konstantina i carice Jelene i rimokatolički hram Uzvišenja Svetog Križa. Centralnoj svečanosti prethodiće međunarodni naučni skup Niš i Vizantija, a za 3. jun planira se i premijerno izvođenje oratorijuma Konstantin Magnus. Narednih godina ovo muzičko-scensko delo trebalo bi da bude izvedeno u gradovima vezanim za život i vladavinu Konstantina Velikog: Milano, Trir, Jork, Arl, Kornut-

Petronel i turski Izmit, nekadašnja Nikomidija. U pripremi je i monografija Konstantinov grad – starohrišćanski Niš. Jedna od najznačajnijih manifestacija biće svakako velika izložba Vreme cara Konstantina, na kojoj će biti prikazani originalni eksponati sa antičkih arheoloških nalazišta“– kaže za BelGuest Vladimir Jovanović, direktor Turističke organizacije Niša. Pored uređenja istorijskih i kulturnih zdanja, Niš će dobiti i spomenik cara Konstantina. Jedno od nezaobilaznih mesta vezanih za Konstantina Velikog i rimsku epohu grada je arheološki lokalitet

Medijana, koji se prostire na ogromnoj površini od oko 80 hektara. Medijana je dragoceno arheološko nalazište koje svedoči o bogatstvu i slavi imperijalnog Naisusa. Centralno mesto na Medijani svakako pripada Vili sa peristilom, koja je bila letnjikovac Konstantina Velikog. Kompozicija vile ukazuje na njenu ceremonijalnu ulogu. U posetu imperatoru dolazilo se svečanim prilaznim putem, koji je počinjao monumentalnom kapijom. Ceremonijalni prilaz vodio je do sale za audijenciju (consitorium) i banket salu (trichorum). Podovi Konstantinove palate bili su pokriveni mozaicima sa geometrijs-

kim motivima – u Medijani su otkriveni izuzetni mozaici, poput onih koji predstavljaju gorgonu Meduzu ili Božanstvo voda. Obilazak Medijane biće svakako nezaobilazan i uzbudljiv deo upoznavanja sa antičkim nasleđem grada i životom cara Konstantina Velikog. ISTORIJA OD DVESTA HILJADA GODINA Pored duhovnog i kulturnog značaja, jubilej bi trebalo da unapredi i turističku ponudu Niša, koji

je, posle Beograda, najveći grad u Srbiji. Priča o Nišu traje više od dvesta hiljada godina. Počinje s prvim tragovima života u pećinama Sićevačke klisure. O nastanku Niša, kako je u knjizi Srbija – zemlja i stanovništvo zabeležio balkanolog Feliks Kanic, koji je 1850. prvi počeo istraživanje antičkog Naisa, „postoji predanje da ga je sagradio kraljević Niša kamenom s obližnje humske čuke, dok je njegova sestra Vida ozidala tvrdi grad Vidin, a da je granica između njihove dve države išla Nišavom i

TURISTIČKA ZNAMENJA NIŠA I OKOLINE Tvrđava Jedno od najočuvanijih gradskih utvrđenja i najlepših zdanja turske vojne arhitekture na srednjem Balkanu. Sagrađena je između 1719. i 1730. godine. Proglašena je za kulturno dobro od velikog značaja, u njoj se nalaze Lapidarijum, Antička ulica – ostaci iz antičkog i vizantijskog doba, te građevine iz vremena vladavine Turaka, kao sto su hamam, arsenal, Bali begova džamija, barutana, apsana, spomenik knezu Milanu Obrenoviću i oslobodiocima Niša Ćele-kula Jedinstveno u svetu spomen-obeležje u koje su Turci uzidali 952 lobanje srpskih ustanika izginulih u boju na Čegru 1809. godine. Niška baNja: Ova banja se smatra za jednu od najstarijih u Evropi – bila je poznata još u rimsko doba. U vreme vladavine cara Konstantina i njegovih naslednika, u naselju Medijani postoji kupatilo u koje je iz banje doticala blagotvorna termomineralna voda. Danas je Niška banja centar zdravstvenog turizma.


Timokom“. Kanic dalje konstatuje da je „rimski Naissus, vizantijski Nysos, slovenski Niš, nemački Nissa ime dobio po reci Nišavi, keltskom Navissosu“, koja kroz njega protiče i nedaleko od grada se uliva u Južnu Moravu. Dardanci su ovu oblast naselili oko 350. godine pre Hrista i za nju su više decenija ratovali s Rimljanima. Poslednji rimski pohod vodio je Marko Antonije. Status rimskog grada – municipijuma dobija u 2. veku nove ere, kada se prvi put u pisanim izvorima pominje kao Nais. Izgradnja rezidencijalnog dela Medijana započela je vek kasnije. Pored Konstantina Velikog, u Nišu je 425. rođen i rimski car Kostancije, a stotinak godina kasnije u njegovoj okolini, kod Lebana, i jedan od najvećih vizantijskih careva Justinijan, graditelj, reformator i osnivač Prve Justinijane. U antičkom Nišu boravili su i Dioklecijan, Konstantinovi sinovi Kostancije Drugi i Kostans, a carevi Valerijan Prvi i Valens u njemu su izdavali i zakone...

PRIVLAČNI SNAŽNI ČOVEK Car Konstantin Veliki – Flavije Valerije Aurelije Konstantin Avgust rođen je, kako navode antički zapisi i istoričari, 27. februara, najverovatnije 273. godine, u raskošnom predgrađu rimskog grada Naisa, u provinciji Gornja Mezija. Istorijski izvori opisuju ga kao čoveka „snažnog i prijatnog izgleda“. Njegov otac Flavije Kostancije Hlor, po poreklu bio je Dardanac, a majka Jelena rodom iz Drepanuma – mesta u maloazijskoj oblasti Bitinija (današnja Jalova u Turskoj). Istoričari pretpostavljaju da je Konstantin ostao u Naisu sa majkom dok je otac gradio uspešnu vojnu karijeru i put ka prestolu tetrarha – jednog od suvladara cara Dioklecijana. Konstantin je u 12. godini poslat na Dioklecijanov dvor u Nikomidiji da se priprema za vojne i državne poslove. Njegova vladavina predstavlja istorijsku prekretnicu – tetrarhiju je ponovo pretvorio u monarhiju i učinio ogroman zaokret ka hrišćanstvu. Car Konstantin je kao vladar često je boravio u Naisu, a prilikom izbora prestonice Istočnog rimskog carstva svoj rodni grad kandidovao je za „novi Rim“, zajedno sa Jerusalimom, Trojom i Nikomidijom, ali je izbor pao na malo mesto Vizantion, potom Konstantinopolj, pa Carigrad, današnji Istanbul. MILANSKI EDIKT I HRISTOV MONOGRAM U februaru 313. u Milanu su se sastali tadašnji suvladari Konstantin i Licinije. Na tom sastanku postignut je dogovor o verskim pitanjima, iz kojeg je, tvrde istoričari, nastalo predanje o Milanskom ediktu – dokumentu koji s tim imenom nikada

donošenje Milanskog edikta bio „čin vernika u odbrani svoje vere“ ili „mudra državnička procena da je hrišćanstvo snaga koja bi mogla da obnovi jedinstvo Carstva“, Crkva ga je kanonizovala. Jevsevije, Konstantinov savremenik, kazuje ono što je mu je sam car rekao: „Jednom posle podne, pričao je car, kada se sunce već poče kloniti zapadu, ja svojim očima videh na nebu Krst Gospodnji, napravljen od zvezda, koji je sijao jače od sunca, i na krstu napisano: Ovim pobeđuj!“ Ovo znamenje poznato je i kao Hristov monogram, labarum ili hrizmon – nebeski znak koji je Konstantin video uoči pobede u bici sa Maksencijem. Pravoslavna crkva slavi praznik Svetog cara Konstantina i carice Jelene 3. juna po gregorijanskom – 21. maja po julijanskom kalendaru, što je i gradska slava Niša. Konstantin Veliki smatra se za prvog hrišćanskog cara, velikog dobrotvora i ktitora, koji je umnogome pomogao uređivanju prilika unutar Crkve.

SLODENT – CENTRE FOR AESTHETIC DENTISTRY

HIGH PROFILE DENTISTRY The Slodent Centre for Aesthetic Dentistry emerged from the renowned specialist dental practice of the same name. Reliant on standards of the most developed countries, Dr. Slobodan Todorović, DDS, and his son Dr. Vladimir Todorović, DDS, built and furnished this top-class dental clinic, which is listed among the practices recommended for foreigners by the Tourist Organisation of Belgrade, but is also on the world list of Dental Departures.

ocated on a quiet street in the Banovo Brdo neighbourhood is a beautiful house with a modern design – glass, an elegant white façade and carefully selected greenery provide the external frame for the world of the Slodent Centre for Aesthetic Dentistry. The entrance lobby, consulting rooms and office space with glass lounge inspire confidence at first sight. The equipment is top class, but the separate operating unit is a real hi-tech surprise. “By opening the new centre, we have provided our patients with a whole new dimension when going to the dentist’s. We strived for the level of our service and the ambience to be at a highest level. In addition, through constantly investing in education, we managed to ensure that our therapeutic procedures do not differ from those in prominent dental centres worldwide. By equipping the Centre according to the highest standards and by applying super modern technology, we have gained recognition for our work both in the country and abroad, says Dr. Vladimir

Todorović, speaking with BelGuest. Along with classical dental procedures, the list of services provided by the Slodent Centre includes: cosmetic dentistry, implantology, periodontal and oral surgery. “An attractive smile and sparklingly white teeth, the so-called Hollywood smile, used to be the privilege only of some chosen personalities, while today an ordinary man can enjoy such a smile in a safe and affordable way. Cosmetic dentistry involves the use of special techniques and most modern materials. The range of cosmetic dental services we offer include teeth whitening, ceramic veneers that are minimally invasive, metal-free crowns, inlays... Completely safe, pain-free and fast, one can correct numerous anomalies and gain a perfect smile as a result, that is, a gallery of beautiful smiles,” our collocutor says. The field of implantology occupies a special place in the activities of the Slodent Centre. Dr. Vladimir Todorović is a MSc in this field of dentistry and will

soon defend his PhD. thesis in this domain. Last autumn he participated in the prestigious implantological ITI EduWeek conference in Hong Kong and received advanced training with internationally renowned expert, Professor Niklaus Lang. “At our Centre we devote special attention to modern aspects of dentistry, so it is quite understandable that implantology occupies an important place. This treatment is a painless, reliable and long-term therapeutic method that can compensate for the loss of one or more teeth and even total edentulism, all with the aim of improving patients’ oral health and quality of life.” Slodent also has a well-designed website that dedicates special attention to prevention and provides advice on how to preserve a healthy and beautiful smile – which represents the centre’s essential mission.

Centar za estetsku stomatologiju Slodent izrastao je iz istoimene renomirane specijalističke stomatološke ordinacije. Oslanjajući se na standarde najrazvijenijih zemalja Doc. dr Slobodan Todorović i njegov sin dr Vladimir Todorović izgradili su i opremili vrhunsku stomatološku kliniku koja se nalazi na listi preporučenih ordinacija za strance Turističke organizacije Beograda i na svetskoj listi Dental Departures.

a Banovom brdu, u mirnoj ulici, nalazi se lepa kuća modernog dizajna – staklo, elegantna crna fasada i brižljivo odabrano zelenilo su spoljni okvir sveta Slodent centra za estetsku stomatologiju. Prijemni hol, ordinacije i kancelarijski prostor sa salonom u staklu ulivaju poverenje već na prvi pogled. Oprema u ordinacijama je vrhunska, ali pravo hi-tech iznenađenje predstavlja izdvojeni operacioni blok. “Otvaranjem novog Centra pružili smo našim pacijentima jednu potpuno novu dimenziju posete stomatologu. Želeli smo da nivo naših usluga i ambijent budu na zavidnom nivou. Uz to, stalnim ulaganjem u edukaciju obezbedili smo da se naše terapijske procedure ne razlikuju od onih u priznatim dentalnim centrima širom sveta. Opremanjem Centra po najvišim standardima i primenom ultramodernih tehnologija dobili smo priznanja za svoj rad, kako u našoj zemlji, tako i u inostranstvu.“ kaže

za BelGuest dr Vladimir Todorović. Na listi usluga koje pruža Slodent Centar, uz klasične stomatološke procedure, nalaze se: estetska stomatologija, implantologija, parodontalna i oralna hirurgija. „Atraktivan osmeh i blistavo beli zubi tzv. Hollywood smile nekada su bili povlastica samo odabranih ličnosti, a danas na bezbedan i pristupačan način i običan čovek može da uživa u osmehu. Estetska stomatologija podrazumeva primenu specijalnih tehnika rada i najsavremenijih materijala. U spektru usluga u okviru estetske stomatologije radimo izbeljivanje zuba, keramičke fasete koje su minimalno invazivne, bezmetalne krune, inleje... Potpuno bezbedno, bezbolno i brzo mogu se korigovati brojne anomalije, a kao rezultat dobijamo savršen osmeh, odnosno galeriju lepih osmeha“, kaže naš sagovornik. Oblast implantologije zauzima posebno mesto u radu Slodent Centra. Dr Vladimir Todorović je

specijalista za ovu oblast stomatologije, iz koje će uskoro odbraniti i doktorsku tezu. Prošle jeseni učestvovao je na na prestižnom implantološkom skupu ITI EduWeek u Hong Kongu i usavršavao se kod poznatog svetskog stručnjaka profesora Niklausa Langa. „U našem Centru se posebna pažnja posvećuje savremenim aspektima stomatologije, pa je sasvim razumljivo da važno mesto zauzima implantologija. Tretman je bezbolan, pouzdan i dugoročan terapijski metod kojim se može nadoknaditi gubitak jednog ili više zuba, pa čak i totalna bezubost, a sve sa ciljem da se pacijentima unapredi oralno zdravlje i kvalitet života.“ Slodent ima i svoj dobro urađen sajt koji posebnu pažnju posvećuje preventivi i daje niz saveta za očuvanje zdravog i lepog osmeha – a to je i njegova suštinska misija.

DUNAV OSIGUR ANJE

NEW OPERATIONAL FRAMEWORK FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES Belgrade’s Hotel Hyatt hosted a regional conference in late March entitled “Development of the insurance markets of Southeast Europe” and staged under the organisation of company Dunav Osiguranje. In addition to Dunav’s management, the conference was also attended by many representatives of insurance companies operating in Serbia and the region. The gathering was opened by the president of the National Assembly of Serbia and attended by representatives of the Serbian government, the EU mission in Serbia, leading local and regional experts in the fields of insurance and finance and representatives of higher education institutions.

Dunav Osiguranje is the market leader in Serbia, with a market share of 30 percent,” explained Dr Jezdimirović, noting that the company operates on the market with competitive principles. “For Dunav Osiguranje the issues of particular importance are state ownership in the insurance domain, the existence of composite companies and the introduction of the “Solvency II” principle”. Mr Freek Janmat, Head of EU Integration and Economy at the EU Delegation in Belgrade, addressed the content of the “Solvency II” principle and other European directives in the insurance sector. He provided a broad explanation of EU directives and stressed that candidate countries, including Serbia, should gradually harmonise with EU standards and introduce the existing EU framework into their legislation and administrative procedures. ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW LAW & OWNERSHIP STRUCTURE Ms Mira Erić Jović, Vice Governor of the National Bank of Serbia, Serbia’s central bank, told conference participants that the draft law on insurance would be published as early as next week’s meeting of central banks. Among the topics that the new law will address is the issue of separating non-life and life insurance products. According to her explanation, the draft law envisages that by the end of the year insurance companies licensed to conduct both life and non-life insurance distinguish between those operations. The alternative of continuing to perform these tasks within a single company will remain, but a solution that would be appropriate for the Serbian market will only be reached through public debate, said the vice governor. Dunav Osiguranje’s stance regarding the announced legislative framework was presented by company director Jezdimirović, who said that “according to European standards, it is possible for companies to remain in state ownership, as well as dealing with both life and non-life insurance without splitting into two companies.” She added that In 2011 Dunav Osiguranje reported an operating profit of 20 percent, which marked significant success during the crisis period. Mr Sergei Simoniti, Director of the Insurance Supervision Agency of Slovenia, announced that he would exchange experiences with Serbian partners on issues related to this area and state-owned companies. “We’re also talking about the liberalisation of compulsory insurance, auto insurance, life and non-life insurance,” added Simoniti, noting that all insurance groups registered in Slovenia operate on the Serbian market. Conference participants and media representatives were also addressed by Deputy Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić, who said that it was in the interests of the Serbian state for Dunav to remain under its ownership, as well as for their to be state banks, because it is completely wrong to simply leave the financial market to foreign capital alone. Following the plenary session, the conference saw thematic panel discussions that addressed the legislative framework of the EU, current practices in the EU and Western Balkan countries, ownership structures of capital in insurance companies, management methods etc. The event was assessed as an exclusive exchange of opinions among vocations and sciences.

DUNAV OSIGURANJE

NOVI OKVIR POSLOVANJA OSIGURAVAJUĆIH KOMPANIJA

U organizaciji kompanije Dunav osiguranje krajem marta je u hotelu Hayatt održana regionalna konferencija sa nazivom „Razvoj tržišta osiguranja u Jugoistočnoj Evropi“. Konferenciji je, pored rukovodstva kompanije Dunav, prisustvovao veliki broj predstavnika osiguravajućih društava koja posluju u Srbiji i regionu. Skup je otvorila predsednica Narodne skupštine Srbije, a učestvovali su predstavnici Vlade Republike Srbije, misije EU u Srbiji, vodeći domaći i regionalni eksperti iz oblasti osiguranja i finansija i predstavnici visokoobrazovanih institucija.

P

redsednica Skupštine Srbije Slavica Đukić Dejanović je, otvarajući konferenciju, istakla da su premije osiguranja značajan izvor investicija koje doprinose finansijskoj stabilnosti zemlje i najavila skoro donošenje novog zakona o osiguranju, koji će biti tema budućeg saziva parlamenta:„Ovu konferenciju doživljavam kao početak javne rasprave o zakonu čiji tekst još nemamo.“ Direktorka Dunav osiguranja dr Milenka Mila Jezdimirović je, pozdravljajući učesnike skupa, istakla da je ova konferencija važna za kompaniju, jer se održava uoči donošenja nove regulative. „Uz razmenu iskustava, ovaj skup nastoji da utiče na stvaranje okvira koji će na najbolji način urediti oblast osiguranja. Dunav osiguranje je lider na tržištu Srbije, sa tržišnim udelom od 30 odsto“, precizirala je gospođa Jezdimirović, napominjući da kompanija posluje na tržišnim i konkurentnim principima. „Za Dunav osiguranje posebno su važna pitanja državnog vlasništva u oblasti osiguranja, postojanja kompozitne firme i uvođenje principa „Solventnost II“. O sadržaju principa„Solventnost II“ i drugim evropskim direktivama u oblasti osiguranja govorio je Freik Janmat, šef sektora Delegacije Evropske unije u Beogradu za evropske integracije i ekonomska pitanja. On je šire obrazložio direktive EU i istakao da bi države kandidati, među kojima i Srbija, trebalo postepeno da se usaglašavaju sa standardima Unije i u svoja zakonodavstva i administrativne procedure unesu okvir koji postoji u EU. NAJAVA NOVOG ZAKONA I VLASNIČKA STRUKTURA Viceguverner Narodne banke Srbije Mira Erić Jović rekla je učesnicima konferencije da će na sastanku centralne banke već naredne nedelje biti objavljen Nacrt zakona o osiguranju. Jedna od tema koju će zakon obrađivati jeste i pitanje razdvajanja neživotnog od životnog osiguranja. Prema njenom objašnjenju, Nacrtom se predviđa da zatečena društva za osiguranje, koja imaju dozvolu za obavljanje

poslova i životnog i neživotnog osiguranja, do kraja tekuće godine razgraniče te poslove. Ostavljena je i alternativa da društva nastave obavljanje ovih poslova u okviru jedinstvene kompanije, ali će se tek u javnoj raspravi doći do rešenja koje bi bilo primereno tržištu Srbije, rekla je viceguvernerka. Stav Dunav osiguranja u odnosu na najavljene zakonske okvire iznela je direktorka Dunav osiguranja, rekavši : „Prema evropskim standardima, moguće je da kompanija ostane u državnom vlasništvu, i da se bavi i životnim i neživotnim osiguranjem, bez cepanja na dve kompanije.“ Dunav osiguranje je u 2011. godini iskazalo poslovnu dobit od 20 odsto, dodala je gospođa Jezdimirović, što je značajan uspeh u vremenu krize. Direktor Agencije za nadzor osiguranja iz Slovenije Sergej Simoniti najavio je da će sa partnerima iz Srbije razmeniti iskustva o pitanjima iz ove oblasti i državnog vlasništva kompanija. „Razgovaraćemo i o liberalizaciji obaveznog osiguranja, auto-osiguranja, životnog i neživotnog osiguranja,“ dodao je Simoniti, ističući da na tržištu Srbije posluju sve grupe osiguravača registrovane u Sloveniji. Učesnicima konferencije i predstavnicima medija obratio se i zamenik premijera Srbije Ivica Dačić, rekavši da je interes države Srbije da Dunav osiguranje ostane u njenoj svojini, te da ima državne banke, jer je potpuno pogrešno da se finansijsko tržište prepusti samo stranom kapitalu. Na konferenciji su, nakon plenarne sednice, održani tematski paneli, na kojima je bilo reči o zakonodavnom okviru EU, postojećoj praksi u EU i u zemljama zapadnog Balkana, vlasničkoj strukturi kapitala u društvima za osiguranje, načinu upravljanja... Skup je ocenjen kao ekskluzivna razmena mišljenja struke i nauke. BelgueSt

BELMEDIC

THE IMPORTANCE OF AN EARLY DIAGNOSIS Top doctors, state-of-the-art medical equipment and full commitment to the patient –these are the keys of the successful work of BelMedic since 1995. Aware of numerous risks that affect the health of modern man, BelMedic has designed special programmes that allow systematic examinations that enable the early detection of risk factors and early detection of diseases or imbalances in the body.

I

s there awareness in serbia of the need for regular check-ups and early detection of diseases? We ask Doctor Ivana Petrović, a deputy director and general practitioner at BelMedic. Awareness of the need and importance of systematic examinations are slowly evolving. After the 1990s, when the importance of prevention was completely forgotten, interest in systematic examinations has been on the rise since the beginning of the century. Each year there are more and more companies seeking to provide their employees with this opportunity, but there are also individuals

who are aware of the fact that early detection of health problems and imbalances will help preserve their health. They are motivated to change lifestyle habits, stop smoking, be more active, lose weight and, thus, gain a better personal and business life. The early detection of diseases such as hypertension, poor regulation of blood sugar and coronary heart disease allow the timely start of treatment and consequent reduction of complications (heart attack, diabetes, heart failure). Finally, even serious illnesses detected on time (breast cancer, cervical cancer or colon cancer) are treated successfully and do not have lasting conse-

quences, therefore ensuring the patient can quickly return to their working routine and family activities after treatment. For some ten years already BelMedic has been organising and performing medical examinations for employees of large international companies operating in serbia (Tetrapak, British American Tobacco, schneider Electric, PWC, KPMG, Holcim etc.). Their managements attach great importance to the prevention and early detection of diseases. In that way they care for the health culture of their employees, preserve their own resources and potential and, on the other hand, also reduce employees’ work absences. It is with great pleasure that I point out that every year more and more local companies are offering this kind of benefit to their employees. We have examined employees of companies like Elkont, ose Engineering, Ds Engineering and many others. one of our patients said jokingly: “The first year we asked the director if we really had to do it; the next year we all responded right away; and this year we are already asking when we are going for our systematic check-up”. How does BelMedic organise medical examinations for companies and individuals? BelMedic organises and carries out examinations for employees working in high risk environments (noise polluted environment, high altitude, construction machin-

ery zone etc.). The structure of these examinations is prescribed by law. When it comes to jobs with no increased risk (white collar functions), the programme is agreed with company representatives, depends on the age and gender of employees and includes laboratory analyses of blood, urine, abdominal ultrasound, an internist’s examination and, almost always, an ophthalmic examination and dental check-up. systematic examinations can be carried out on any day, including weekends, and are organised so that the patient can do everything in a very short time, without having to wait. Companies prefer the possibility of conducting examinations on weekends because that ensures no absences from work. When it comes to check-ups for individuals, the intended patient completes a questionnaire and, based on the information provided, our medical team devises a bespoke programme. The structure of annual health checkups depends on gender, age, health condition, family medical history and type of work, as well as the habits and lifestyles of our patients. What should women under 50 be checking in control and what are those over 50 advised to check? Women are advised to take an examination by a gynaecologist and a gynaecological ultrasound. We do an obligatory PAP smear test for the early detection of precancerous and malignant changes of the cervix, a test of vaginal secretions and a breast ultrasound or mammogram. Women under the age of 40 are advised to undergo a clinical examination and ultrasound check-up of the breast, while for over-40s the mammogram is the diagnostic method of

100

SPring | Proleće 2012 BelGuest

choice for detecting breast cancer. Menopausal women are advised to measure bone density (DEXA method) in order to promptly reveal osteopenia (reduced bone density) and osteoporosis, i.e., bone loss that results in bone fractures. With adequate prevention (physical activity, calcium and vitamin D consumption), these diseases are preventable and treatable through the use of certain drugs. What are men advised to check for? As men age they face an increased risk of prostate cancer. For that reason, men who are over 50 are encouraged to undergo regular annual controls of PsA – prostate tumour markers. Both men and women over 50 are encouraged to have the entire length of the colon examined –colonoscopy – in order to detect polyps and colon cancer, which can be carried out at BelMedic under a short general anaesthetic. This eliminates any discomfort and pain: a reason why patients often avoid this check-up. Are managers exposed to additional health risks and what do you recommend for them? This is almost the only profession that has its own disease, because doing this job carries a special risk. These are people who work a lot and are exposed to continuous stress. They do not have enough time for physical activity or sleep and often eat irregularly and unhealthily. A systematic examination of managers of both sexes contains comprehensive, high profile laboratory analyses of blood and urine and in addition to standard tests (ECG, abdominal ultrasound, internist and ophthalmologic examination), their examination also includes the Doppler ultrasound of the heart and heart stress test (ergometry), which facilitates early detection of coronary artery disease. How challenging is this kind of work is for you? The fact that I have the opportunity to help a patient before they fall ill and help them preserve their health with the right advice is a real challenge, I have to admit. You must motivate and win the confidence of the patient and take the lead together to make the necessary habit and lifestyle changes. BelgueSt

Na ovim takmičenjima učestvuju školski timovi i postižu zapažene rezultate. Samo u ovoj školskoj godini, u okviru udruženja CeeSA, ISB je osvojila sedam individualnih i timskih takmičenja. Učenicima osnovne škole pruža se mogućnost da učestvuju u širokom spektru aktivnosti, od borilačkih veština i fudbala, preko sportskog penjanja, bejzbola i šaha, pa sve do glume, joge i košarke.

Učenici na svim uzrastima pohađaju i nastavu muzičkog obrazovanja i nastupaju u nekoliko priredbi tokom školske godine. Srednja škola ima i svoj školski list koji uređuju učenici, a osnovcima i srednjoškolcima pruža se mogućnost da učestvuju u rukovođenju školom preko predstavnika svojih odeljenjskih zajednica.

LAUGH RESOUNDING IN THE ETHER OF MEMORIES

Educational trips represent an important part of education. Aware of the importance of travel, PRIMA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, in agreement with pupils, selects a destination each year which, in a relaxed and interesting form, provides pupils with an abundance of information and the kind of experience necessary for forging the general cultural values of an individual. This year the choice was northern Italy.

O

n my recent school excursion I finally got a chance to meet Italy, have fun with my friends and get a stiff neck from a twelve-hour bus ride,” wittily comments Kagai Muriithi, a twelfth grade pupil at the PRIMA school, on his travel experience. “Our young tour guide, Miloš, did all he could to make our trip unforgettable. The facts and knowledge he relayed to us will stay in our minds forever. The best parts of the excursion have been recorded through photos. Our laughs on this journey will resound through the ether of our memories,” poetically concludes Kagai, who is originally from Kenya. The travel itinerary took in the cities of northern Italy. The first destination was Venice, with its famous square of St. Marko, canals, bridges, historic buildings etc. Anđela Bajagić, an eighth grade pupil, described the experience of the journey in her own words, saying: “the cities were amazing and my favourite was Venice, probably because we got to ride on the gondolas.” The next destination was Florence, the capital of Tuscany. Visiting the Uffizi Museum, one of the oldest and most famous museums in the world, crossing the “Old Bridge” that connects the banks of the River Arno, meeting Michelangelo’s David, walking through “the exciting pages of history of art and architecture,” left a lasting mark on the collective memory of these schoolchildren. Breeze Kimber Freeman, an eighth grade pupil originally from the UK, summarised her experience of visiting these ancient cities, saying: “overall, travelling through Italy was a

106

SPring | Proleće 2012 BelGuest

wonderful experience for me. The architecture of the cities was incredible and the history behind all of those statues and buildings is more than interesting.” Of course, an integral part of getting to know Italy was “sampling” famous Italian specialities: pizza, pasta and ice cream with the best flavours in the world. The next destination was Pisa, a small town in the heart of Tuscany. Here pupils visited the famous Leaning Tower, which also provided an opportunity to take lots of humerous and educational photographs that remain in the PRIMA School travel album. The pupils took advantage of the break in Pisa to buy souvenirs that will always remind them of this school trip. From Pisa the journey continued northwards – towards Venice and Trieste. During this trip filled with various programmes there was still enough time for students to better acquaint themselves with their peers and teachers. Seeing the authority of teachers under more relaxed circumstances was also an important moment for the pupils. The trip back to Belgrade was accompanied by music and socialising and the obligatory question of where the next excursion will take them. You can see all the beauty of pupil companionship in the photographs that testify to the good atmosphere of the PRIMA excursion. What cannot be seen is the effect of the journey that seamlessly and unobtrusively provided the children with much important information and valuable knowledge. BelgUeST

SMEH U ETRU SEĆANJA

Važan segment u obrazovanju predstavljaju edukativna putovanja. Prepoznajući značaj putovanja, PRIMA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, u dogovoru sa učenicima, svake godine bira destinacije koje na opušten i zanimljiv način đacima pružaju informacije i doživljaje neophodne za opštu kulturu. Ove godine izbor je bio severna Italija.

N

a nedavno završenoj ekskurziji konačno sam dobio priliku da upoznam Italiju, da se lepo zabavim s drugarima i da imam ukočen vrat od dvanaestočasovne vožnje autobusom, duhovito komentariše svoj doživljaj putovanja Kagai Muriithi, učenik dvanaestog razreda PRIMA škole. „Naš mladi turistički vodič Miloš dao je sve od sebe da nam ovo putovanje bude nezaboravno. Činjenice i znanje koje nam je preneo ostaće nam zauvek u sećanju. Najlepši deo ekskurzije zabeležen je na fotografijama. Naš smeh na ovom putovanju će i dalje odzvanjati u etru naših sećanja“, poetično zaključuje Kagai, inače rodom iz Kenije. Itinerer putovanja obuhvatio je gradove severne Italije. Prva destinacija bila je Venecija, sa čuvenim trgom Sv. Marka, kanalima, mostovima, istorijskim građevinama... Anđela Bajagić, učenica osmog razreda, ovako je opisala svoj doživljaj putovanja: „Gradovi su na mene ostavili snažan utisak, a najjači je ostavila Venecija, verovatno zato što smo se vozili gondolama.“ Naredna na našem putu bila je Firenca, prestonica Toskane. Obilazak jednog je od najstarijih i najpoznatijih muzeja na svetu Ufici, prelazak preko „Starog mosta“, koji povezuje obale reke Arno, susret s Mikelanđelovim Davidom, šetnje kroz „uzbudljive stranice istorije umetnosti i arhitekture“ ostavili su trajan pečat u sećanju učenika. Briz Kimber Friman, učenica osmog razreda iz Velike Britanije, ovako je sažela svoj doživljaj obilaska drevnih gradova: „Sveukupno, putovanje

u Italiju bilo je divno iskustvo za mene. Arhitektura gradova je fascinantna, a istorija u pozadini svih tih građevina i skulptura više je nego zanimljiva.“ Naravno, sastavni deo upoznavanja sa Italijom bila je „degustacija“ čuvenih italijanskih specijaliteta: pizza, pasti i sladoleda sa najlepšim ukusima na svetu. Potom smo stigli u Pizu, gradić u srcu Toskane. Đaci su obišli čuveni Krivi toranj, a to je bila i prilika da se napravi dosta duhovitih i edukativnih fotografija, koje su ostale u albumu putovanja PRIMA škole. Predah u Pizi učenici su iskoristili za kupovinu suvenira, koji će ih uvek podsećati na ovu školsku ekskurziju. Iz Pize, putovanje je nastavljeno ka severu – ka Veneciji i Trstu. Na ovom putovanju, ispunjenom raznovrsnim sadržajima, bilo je i dovoljno vremena za bolje upoznavanje sa vršnjacima i profesorima. Sagledavanje autoriteta profesora u opuštenijim okolnostima takođe je bio važan momenat za učenike. Povratak u Beograd protekao je uz pesmu i druženje i obavezno pitanje kada će biti naredna ekskurzija. Sva lepota đačkog druženja može se videti na fotografijama koje svedoče o dobroj atmosferi PRIMA ekskurzije. Ono što se ne vidi je učinak putovanja koje je deci nenametljivo pružilo mnogo važnih informacija i dragocenog znanja. BelgUeST
