Celebrating the Queens Birthday

Another very exhausting but extremely worthwhile weekend having laid on another Annual Birthday Party here in the Village.

As a foreigner and also non Orthodox, I don’t have a family patron saint, hence don’t celebrate a family Slava as most Orthodox Christians here do.

Listen to the Balkan Adventures Podcast above to find out more.

Being invited to local Slavas is a privilege I know and it’s customary to reciprocate.

So my reciprocal celebration​ is a traditional British event and that is, the official Birthday of the Sovereign.

The second Saturday in June therefore, is when a tiny part of BiH becomes British for a few hours.

This year Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second was toasted after a very social meal based on a “Curry Lunch”.
