      Pilgrimages to Serbia. Fall 2024 and Spring 2025

      Icon Art Studios is hosting cultural, art, and historical pilgrimages to Serbia. Icon Art Studios recently hosted two pilgrimages to Serbia. These experiences were extremely successful in the warmth and expertise of our host and tour guide from Belgrade, Deb Korluka’s icon board maker, Miroslav and his daughter Simona, who is an art historian. These pilgrimages will be offered in the fall and spring if group numbers fill to a minimum of ten participants. The itinerary consists of monastery visits almost every day along with visits to wineries and hotel spas. Itineraries will sometimes vary, such as including Sofia, Bulgaria. The tour begins and ends in Belgrade. Many Serbian cities are included. Please call or e-mail Deb Korluka if you are interested in either this coming fall or 2025 spring/fall possibilities. Inquiries appreciated. The iconography is exquisite, the monasteries very serene, the people so lovely. Truly, a memorable journey.
