Republic of Srpska 32nd anniversary celebrated in Rotterdam




The 32nd anniversary of the Republic of Srpska was celebrated.


In honor of Republic of Srpska Day, the Representation of Republic of Srpska in Brussels, in cooperation with the Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity in Rotterdam, organized a banquet for the 4th consecutive year on Sunday, February 11, to bring together our community and commemorate this significant occasion.


Among the attendees were Željka Cvijanović, a Serb member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Mario Djuragic, Head of the Republic of Srpska Representation in Brussels, and Mrs. Ksenija Milenkovic, the Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia to the Kingdom of the Netherlands.


Following a holy liturgy and the reading of church gospel, the sacred cake was consecrated. President Cvijanović expressed gratitude to all present and emphasized the importance of unity, highlighting the challenges and denials this day has faced over the years. She stressed the significance of maintaining strong ties with the diaspora and continuing to cherish and celebrate Srpska, preserving its significance in our hearts and memories.


 

Republic of Srpska was founded on January 9, 1992. Three and a half years later the Dayton Peace Agreement was signed, which internationally verified it as one of the two highly decentralized entities that make up Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Today, Republic of Srpska is one of two constitutional and legal entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, that covers 49% of its territory with population of 1.3 minion. Banja Luka is the second largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the de facto capital of the Republic of Srpska entity.
