About this trip

 With the Blessing of His Eminence Peter, Archbishop of Chicago and Mid-America, a Diocesan pilgrim group will visit some of the most beautiful and important Holy sites of the Balkans. Starting with the Medieval Venetian ports on the shore of the Adriatic Sea, to the Monasteries of Kosovo and Metohija, we will visit a multitude of sites along our route and will learn about the complex history of the Balkans. Those of you who wanted to venerate St. Basil of Ostrog, St. Nicholas of Zhica, St. Sava the Enlightener, along with many other Serbian Saints, or to pray at the largest Orthodox functioning 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. We will visit Miljkov Monastery, the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox church in Belgrade and the Seminary in Sremski Karlovtsi, all directly linked to the Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovistsky) and the first generation of the Russian clerics in exile.

We feel blessed being a part of this pilgrimage! People were friendly and the trip was very well organized: nice hotels, convenient transportation, restaurants with non-GMO food and a knowledgeable tour guide. The tap water was drinkable everywhere during this trip. Our special thank you to our tour guide Ivan Krucican, who gave us a good blend of history, culture, and of course - Orthodoxy. His kindness and knowledge exceeded our expectations! We visited many ancient churches and monasteries and admired their unique frescoes and beautiful architecture. Thank you for this spiritual experience!
