 The ceremony marking 195 years since the death of Djordje Petrovic Karadjordje, leader of the First Serbian Uprising, has been held today in the Church of St. George on the hill of Oplenac in Topola. Crown Prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic and Princess Katarina Karadjordjevic paid respects to the Serbian general together with representatives of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, high-level delegations of the Ministry of Defense and the Serbian Armed Forces, as well as the municipalities of Topola and Arandjelovac. Wreaths were also laid by representatives of several organizations and societies for preserving traditions of Serbian liberation wars until 1918. Karadjordje was killed in Radovanjski Lug near Velika Plana on July 25, 1817. He was a leader of the First Serbian Uprising and one of the most significant military commanders in Serbia between 1804 and 1813.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
