In the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, stretching across Southeastern and Central Europe, lies the mystical and still underexplored Serbia. From prehistoric times to the present day, it was and remains the crossroads of the most important travel routes. Observed geographically, politically and culturally, it has always been between the East and the West, between Byzantium and Rome, the Ottoman Empire and Western Christianity. The Serbs have always remained the East to the West, and they have always been the West to the East, wisely said one of the greatest Serbian saints – Rastko Nemanjić – Saint Sava, 800 years ago.
