Today, the Serbian Orthodox Church and the faithful mark Saint Sava, who is considered one of the most important figures in Serbian history. Savindan is celebrated as part of the first Serbian archbishop, educator and creator of legislation. Saint Sava is considered the founder of Serbian medieval literature and the protector of educational institutions.

He was born in 1169 as the youngest son of the Serbian prefect Stefan Nemanja. His world name was Rastko. He renounced worldly life and became a monk at a very young age, around 1192, on the Holy Mountain, in the Russian monastery of St. Panteleimon. He returned to Serbia in 1208 to completely reconcile the quarreling brothers. He was engaged in educational work, transmitting basic religious and secular lessons. He left behind several written works. The most important are "Life of Saint Simeon", "Karejski tipik", "Hilandarski tipik" and "Studenički tipik", as well as "Zakonopravilo".


The legacy of Saint Sava is still present in the tradition of the Orthodox Church of the Slavic peoples. He is the greatest Serbian educator. He is a man who founded the Hilandar monastery and who, with his firm faith in God, also believed in people, connected them and illuminated their life paths. He is also important as the writer of the first Serbian Nomocanon, the Life of Saint Simeon, Studenički and Hilandarski tipik. Numerous songs and folk tales have been written about him, and the day of his death, January 27, was marked as a holiday of all schools and many Orthodox believers.
