Highlights of this video:
in the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroad between East and West, has
imprinted on it’s soil the witness of a rich civilization. For centuries Serbs fought against foreign invaders to keep
Serbian land that flourished in the Middle Ages under Nemanjic dynasty.
In 1389 the Serbian Army met, at the Kosovo Field, the Ottoman
Turks invaders, who according to contemporary sources, counted
ten times more soldiers than the Serbian Army.
In these unbalanced confrontations of military forces, Serbs lost
the battle. Prince Lazar
was decapitated by the Turks and Sultan Murat was killed by the Serbian
hero Milos Obilic. But the
Serbian spirit was never defeated.
Kosovo Battle gave the Serbs the spiritual and moral strength to
fight the Infideles, who came from Asia.
Serbs also defended the Christian Europe against the Ottoman Turks. They built a defensive border, called “Military Frontier” at the South-East border of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy which extended a thousand miles from the Adriatic Coast and Lika Region to Voyvodina – the northern part of Yugoslavia. For their bravery, Serbs were given land by the Austrian Empress.
