On Vidovdan celebrated Holy Eucharist in Serbian Orthodox temples all over the world

Kosovo and Metochia St. Vitus Day (Vidovdan), 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 Gračanica 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.
