    Battle of Kosovo icon. ...The heart of Serbia, her soul, which was Kosovo, lay here. Lazar’s territory began to feel the threat for real in 1381 when the first Turkish raids in northern Serbia began. The pivotal invasion would come on a Tuesday, eight years later. That Tuesday, June 28, 1389, would become probably the single most important date in all of Serbian history, and the impact of the events of that single day would not only effect the Serbians and their lands, but all of the Balkans and the future of Europe as well. It is impossible to quantify...

    Kosovska Devojka The Kosovo Maiden ***** Today, June 28, 2011, marks the anniversary of perhaps the most sacred day in Serbian history. It can be said, too, that it is a sacred day in Christian history. On this day, in 1389 on Kosovo field, 70,000 Serbian men, the entire Serbian Army, gave its life to defend Christianity against the onslaught of the Ottoman Turks and Islam. They chose the "Heavenly Kingdom" over the earthly one. For them, Christianity was worth fighting for.Sincerely, Aleksandra Rebic *****

Kosovo was, is and will be the heart of Serbia, just...
