Our homeland extends from Northern Dalmatia, Lika, Banija, Kordun, Western and Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Srem.
In this region, there are fewer and fewer of us now. We are mentioned in the 9th century by the Frankish chronicler Einhart, the first mention of Serbs being related to Dalmatia. Serbian monasteries have records of our faith and history – the Krupa Monastery built in 1317 and the Krka Monastery in 1350, which was built by the sister of Emperor Dušan Nemanjic.
Our people inhabited the homeland of Eastern Slavonia, Baraja and Western Srem in the 5th century along with beautiful Lika, surrounded by Velebit in the south, Veliki Kapel in the west, Mali Kapel in the north and Lika Plješevica in the east, and in Lika springs the most beautiful river, Una.
Also northern Dalmatia on the Adriatic coast, from the island of Rab to the Bay of Kotor, decorated with national parks and Krka waterfalls, Eastern and Western Slavonia, Baranja and Western Srem, once the southern parts of the Pannonian plain.
Banija, between Una and Kupa, from Petrova gora towards Dvor, is wooded and luxurious.
Kordun, both mountainous and plain, is adorned in the south by the Korana, in the north by Kupa, and shares Topija with Banija.
Our homeland has it all – the smell of the sea, and the power of karst and mountains, the splendor of the forest, and the warmth of the plains.
It has everything, and will always have each other.
