Kosovo - the Heart and Soul
of the Serbian People

Kosovo Battle
Kosovo was the heart of the medieval Serbian kingdom. The Serbs lost their freedom and fell under 500 years of harsh Islam occupation after the grand battle of Kosovo.

The meaning of Kosovo to the Serbs
In the old tradition the Serbian nation celebrates the bravery of their ancestors who met the intruder on the battlefield. The Serbs say: "Our forefathers chose death over slavery. They lost kingdom on Earth for kingdom in the Heaven." This courage to stand for one's own beliefs, to defend one's own way of life over the wish of foreign powers to conquer and subdue remained the backbone of the Serbian consciousness and pride.

What happened to Kosovo Serbs?
If Kosovo was the heart of the medieval Serb kingdom and if thus it was all Serb in 14th century - how did it get to be 90% Albanian today?
