BELGRADE -- St. Vitus Day, a religious holiday when Serbs commemorate
the 1389 Battle of Kosovo, was marked in all Serbian Orthodox
Christian temples today.
The ceremonies continued by liturgies in the monastery of Grac(anica
and memorial service in Gazimestan, devoted to the Kosovo heroes who
lost their lives in the battle that took place 619 years ago.
Several thousand Serbs rallied in Gazimestan to attend the service,
with intensified police and KFOR patrols are securing the event.
The service dedicated to the souls of Serbia's fallen soldiers more
than 600 years ago was also held in the Church of Sv. Marko in Belgrade.
