Our treasure keeps growing!


We have created a new section devoted to old Serbian manuscripts. The page is designed as a web portal to the work of BLAGO Fund and other internet databases. Digital copies of two manuscripts created by the BLAGO team have been added to our collection - a fifteenth-century menaion for September from Manasija monastery and a sixteenth-century menaion for October from Duboki Potok monastery. We have also gathered links to other digitized Serbian menaia available online and also to some of the most renowned Serbian manuscripts which are included in the Library of Congress, National Library of Serbia, Russian National Library, and many other digital repositories around the world. And the list keeps growing daily.


Menaion is a liturgical book with offices, hymns, and prayers for immovable feasts for each month of the liturgical year.

A Gift of Good Health


Popular Siberian Aronia in the USA. Numerous studies have linked aronia berries to potential health benefits such as helping to fight cardiovascular disease, normalizing blood pressure, diabetes prevention & help, urinary tract health, weight control, anti-carcinogenic effect, and many more. Our aronia berries are never chemically treated, and grow in sprawling fields in Siberia, where sub-zero temperatures reduce acidity and push more antioxidants into each plant—resulting in a more potent, resilient, and lower-sugar fruit.
