The City of Belgrade and What to Visit
What the famous Serbian writers, poets and journalists said about Belgrade:
„This grand city seems to have always been like this: torn and split, as if it never exists but is perpetually being created, built upon and recovered … Ever in motion and rustle, never calm and never knowing tranquility or quiet, the city upon two rivers, on the grand clearing, bound by the winds. (Ivo Andrić)
“He who was lucky enough to wake up this morning in Belgrade shouldn’t ask for anything more in life. More than that would be immodest.” (Duško Radović)

Irena Medňanská – Epitaph
Irena Medňanská passed away on December 31, 2020, in Prešov, Slovakia. With her, the EAS as well as international music education is losing a renowned and deserving personality. Irena has helped shape the development of our association from the very beginning. She was an EAS board member for more than a decade and an EAS honorary member since 2016. She participated in nearly all EAS conferences and organized the EAS conference in 1996 at the University of Prešov. Irena has achieved special merits by strengthening Eastern European countries’ presence in the international music education discourse.
