I especialy liked a small wooden church in this album (http://public.fotki.com/zlatko-visko/serbia-/p8110522.html) and Zlatko has commented on it below.

Serbian churches and monasteries:

It's so heart-warming to see how similar Slavic churches are, even though Serbia is not a neighbor of Russia or Ukraine.

    Hi,

    I'm glad that you like the photo. It's not typical design for Serbian churches. The photo is taken in South West Serbia, near mountain Tara. The village (Drvengrad - Wood Town) is newly dated and it's creation is idea of film director Emir Kusturica. It's not enough to say that it is beautiful. It's necessary to see it and to experience local hospitality, food and to stay some time.

    I guess, people don't know much about the Gypsy culture, and how they make choice to lead nomadic life even when they have opportunities to settle down. People should probably read Pushkin's "The Gypsies" - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gypsies_(poem) (copy-paste the entire link, including the word "poem" and parenthesis, if you browser misinterprets it).
