Stefan Lazarević (1377 -19 July 1427), also known as Stefan the Tall, was the ruler of Serbia as knez (1389–1402) and despot (1402–1427). The son of Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović, he was regarded as one of the finest knights and military leaders in Europe.

After the death of his father at Kosovo (1389), he became ruler of Moravian Serbia and ruled with his mother Milica (a Nemanjić), until he reached adulthood in 1393. Stefan led troops in several battles as an Ottoman vassal, until asserting independence after receiving the title of despot from the Byzantines in 1402. Becoming an Hungarian ally in 1403 - 04, he received large possessions, including the important Belgrade and Golubac Fortress. He also held the superior rank in the chivalric Order of the Dragon.

Despot Stefan Lazarević was a great patron of art and culture providing support and shelter to scholars from Serbia and exiles from surrounding countries occupied by the Ottomans. He was educated at his parents’ home, he spoke and wrote Serbo-Slavic; he could speak Greek, and was familiar with Latin.

He was an author in his own right, and his main works include "Slovo ljubve" (Letter of Love) that he dedicated to his brother Vuk.

About us

The festival of lost values Just Out is a culmination of all summer festivals

The passion of the people around D.S.L (Despot Stefan Lazarević) organization who conceived the concept of the Just Out festival, support from Bejing to London, the modern knights with brave hearts and with word of honor brings back lost hope while respecting gentleman's code. 

We are fighting for the respect of moral values, participate and help uncompomising fight against violence on women, children and weaklings. 
This is our mission, our covenant! 

Monastery fortress to this they with bishops, nuns and all of us here and now proudly resists the dramatic rise in violence, drugs, hooliganism, kitsch. We set as a dam, on the brightness of day, this festival inspired by the history and honor that in this holy place we delete the boundaries, colors and diversity and we all breathe in what the modern world in a hurry forgets... Love! 

Јust Out festival is turned to traditional values. He unlocks the secret code of Eastern Serbia, approaching the world every creek, tweet, hot earthenware dish, plum ''Ranku'', children's smiles, the clatter of wild horse. 

We are non-profit non-governmental organization. And in addition we initiated a major project to clean around monastery Manasija, elimination of consequences of floods with help of large number of volunteers. 
Municipality Despotovac helps works and understands the importance of this and many future projects to preserve natural beauty and ecology. 

We support making a movie about great Serbian diplomat and warrior Despot Stefan Lazarević

 

History of one nation is one of the most important factors that influence its development. Without it the existence of naciona identity is unithinkable. History does not just represents cluster of periods that were irrevocably past and gone, but its presence is constant and visible, especially in the shaping of today’s society.

The Association “Beli Orlovi” (White Eagles), therefore, attempts to show the modern world, the most important elements from one period of Serbian history. The development of Serbian society started in the distant past, when major historic events took place.
