28 June - Vidovdan or St. Guy's Day in Serbia
There are plenty of days of national importance for Serbia throughout the year, but none come close to the intensity and emotion of June 28. Known as Vidovdan, the day is the very heart of what makes Serbia ‘Serbia’.
A lot of people assume that Yugoslavia was a part of the Soviet sphere of influence, but the truth couldn’t be further from that. Tito and Yugoslavia were the first to break from Stalin and the Soviet Union, and the events that led to the official split were put in motion on Vidovdan, 1948.
