"Serbia is a small land in Southern-East Europe (about the size of the U.S. state of Maine) that has had significant impact upon world history and politics.
     As you explore Serbia, you will discover a treasure chest filled with art, culture and tradition. It has ancient monasteries, intricate mosaics, epic poems, and a long list of accomplished artists and scholars.
     From Ivo Andrić, winner of the 1961 Nobel Prize for literature, to Nikola Tesla, the Serbian-American electrical engineer who invented alternating current (AC), Serbia's writers, scientists, scholars, and athletes have made important contributions." - JoAnn Milivojevic, Serbia- Enchantment of the World, Children's Press, New York, 1999.
