Serbia Names Park in Honor of Alexandrov Choir

Serbia named a central Belgrade park in honor of Alexandrov ensemble, also known as Red Army Choir, whose 64 members were killed in a plane crash in 2016.

The conductors of Alexandrov Choir and Serbian Army ensemble „Stanislav Binicki“ unveiled the plaque with the park’s new name, after which the Russian choir performed in the park.

Serbia’s Minister of Culture Vladan Vukosavljevic said at the ceremony that Serbia and Russia are „not sitting on two chairs but together, on the throne of Slavic culture“.
