If you’re a Serb or know one, then you know how much fun a Serbian Festival can be.
If you’re a Serb and love wine, you visit a winery for wine-tasting (and drinking). If you really love wine, chances are you venture to California Wine Country.

Ćurčić was a prolific scholar whose work examined a wide spectrum of topics across southeast Europe. Among his areas of focus were late-Roman and early-Christian archaeological remains in Cyprus, Greece and Serbia; decoration of Byzantine-Norman churches in Sicily; and architecture in the Byzantine Balkans from late antiquity to the Ottoman era.
Born Dec. 19, 1940, in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (the former Yugoslavia), Ćurčić grew up in Belgrade, Serbia. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and in 1975 received his Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, writing a dissertation on the Late Byzantine church at Gračanica.
