Pilgrims will visit a multitude of sites and learn about the complex history of the Balkans, have an opportunity to pray at a festal Liturgy, to venerate the Holy Hierarchs Basil of Ostrog Nicholas (Velimirović) of Žiča, and Sava the Enlightener of Serbia, along with many other Serbian Saints, or to pray at the largest functioning Orthodox church in the world, will certainly be able to do so during our pilgrim trip. Of special interest are the sites associated with the post-revolution Russian refugees in Serbia. Pilgrims will visit Miljkov Monastery, Holy Trinity Russian Church in Belgrade, and the Seminary in Sremski Karlovtsi, all directly linked to the Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovitsky) and the first generation of the Russian clerics in exile.
