Faith.

September 18, 2010 § Leave a comment

Vojvodina and Kosovo were the only two autonomous provinces in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Though far less controversial, we spent a day driving through the former. With no agenda at hand, we whisked through the terrain of Fruška Gora, a mountain in the province of Vojvodina. Its hilly terrain is peppered with a host of Serbian Orthodox monasteries, some of which date back to the 15th century. Exposed to orthodox christianity for the first time, I took my time observing the scenes that unfolded in these centres of monastic existence. Some were being given a facelift undergoing renovation, some were ornately beautiful and some just stood tall as modern day bastions of christianity.
