Moments to remember: Olympism in Serbia 1912-2012


Exhibition „Moments to remember: Olympism in Serbia 1912-2012“ is organized in the light of the upcoming XXX Summer Olympic Games in London 2012, with an intention to mark one century since the Serbia took part at the Olympic Games for the first time. This important jubilee represents an opportunity to portray history of the Olympic movement in Serbia, as well as the genesis of modern Olympism as a unique phenomenon of the modern age, still sharing ideals of its founder Baron Pierre De Coubertin. Inspired by the Ancient Olympics, he organized the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1986. Since than, the Games have been held every 4 years.

The most important exhibits from the collection of the Foundation of Sports and Olympism and the Olympic committee of Serbia will be on display, since the establishment of Serbian Olympic Club in 1910 by Svetomir Djukic, to Serbia’s first participation at V Olympics in Stockholm 1912, first medal won in Paris 1924 and all the way to the successes of our athletes in Beijing Olympics. Our Olympians have so far won 98 medals and the exhibition is symbolically on the road to the 100th medal expected to be won in London.

Serbian athletes didn’t compete at the first Olympics in 1986, but Kingdom of Serbia was an honorary guest. King Aleksandar I Obrenovic attended at the invitation of Greek King George I, and at the opening ceremony where a Serbian flag was raised and Serbian anthem was played, he was the only foreign monarch. In London, 112 athletes will represent Serbia competing in 15 sport disciplines.
