Unveiling of the monument to Stefan Nemanja

This is not just an act of unveiling a monument to our father, the creator of the state, the saint, and the one from who it all began. This is a kind of act of being accountable to ourselves and our identity, what we have learned, what we know and where we are going. Long live Serbia !, President of the Republic of Serbia Mr. Aleksandar Vucic said.

In the center of Belgrade, near the former Railway station, a monument to Stefan Nemanja (Venerable Simeon the Myrrh-Gusher), the Grand Prince (veliki župan) and one of the greatest Serbian rulers, was ceremoniously unveiled on 27 January 2021, on the feast day of Saint Sava.

President Aleksandar Vucic said that since Stefan Nemanja until today, the Serbian people have been a state-building people. "Without the awareness that there was someone before us - someone who had dreams we live today - no dream of the future is possible", the President pointed out. The ceremony was attended by Their Graces Bishops: Jovan of Sumadija and the administrator of the Archbishopric of Belgrade and Karlovci; Irinej of Backa, David of Krusevac, Stefan of Remesiana and Isihije of Mohacs.
