文/Mirjana Kovacevic

This is a very popular song in Serbia. It is one of my favorite songs because it is about a man who is falling in love with a woman. Even though he is trying to resist the temptation, everything about this woman, her look, her fragrance is alluring this man into loving her deeply. In the end, he succumbs and he accepts to “dance with her eternally”, that is to spend the rest of his live with her.
這首歌在塞爾維亞非常有名,也是我最喜歡的歌之一,歌詞內容是關於男人愛上女人的故事。即使這個男人想要抗拒一切跟這個女人有關的事物,但從她的容貌、她的香水都誘惑著這個男人更加深愛她。到最後,他終於服從他的感情並且要「永遠和她一起跳舞」,也就是和她一起度過下半輩子。

How to say “I love you” in Serbian? 「 VOLIM TE 」
塞爾維亞的我愛你怎麼說呢?「 VOLIM TE 」

塞爾維亞情人節必訪活動

“Kiss me” manifestation is a symbol of Valentine’s Day in Serbia.

「親吻我」是塞爾維亞情人節的象徵。

Still, it is expected that manifestation which has become a symbol of Valentine‘s Day is going to attract the largest number of domestic and foreign visitors again this year. “Kiss me” will be held on the February 14th at the famous “Bridge of love” and represents something that people simply must visit!

可以想見這個成為情人節象徵的活動,今年會再次吸引的大量的國內外遊客造訪。「親吻我」在二月十四號舉行,地點是在有名的「愛情橋」,大家一定要去看看。

On the bridge, among hundreds of red, heart-shaped balloons, Valentine’s Day will be marked in Vrnjačka Banja as well as every year. At noon sharp, dozens of couples are going to send a honest message of love and peace with the kisses.

在橋上會布置數百個紅色的心形氣球,每年情人節都被會放在Vrnjačka Banja  (塞爾維亞地名) 。正中午的時候,幾十對情侶互相親吻來傳達愛與和平的信念。

The charming, queen of Serbian spas these days symbolizes love, happiness and celebration of the marriage. Positive energy is spreading through the air, and even those of the “coldest heart” cannot resist the strong emotions. Besides the message that the love is the most beautiful and most sublime feeling, this event has a goal of awarding and encouraging those in love to cherish and spread their love.

迷人的 Serbian spas皇后在情人節的日子裡象徵著愛、幸福和婚禮慶祝。正面的能量會散播出去,就算是那些最冰冷的心也不能抵擋這麼強烈的情感。伴隨著愛最美好和崇高的感受,這個活動希望獎賞和鼓勵戀愛中的人們珍惜和散播他們的愛。

¨“Kiss me” manifestation was held in 2009 for the first time on the “Bridge of love” in Vrnjacka Banja. Since then, several thousands of visitors attend and enjoy the competition, entertaining program, music, food and drinks every year.

2009年「親吻我」活動第一次在Vrnjacka Banja的愛情橋上舉辦,從那時候開始,每年數以百計的遊客會前來參加和享受比賽,並且沉浸在餘興節目、音樂和食物中。

"Kiss me"is a competition for the longest kiss represents the central part of the manifestation, and the winning couple is traditionally rewarded. From the stage of kisses, the oldest and the most attractive couple are also being chosen and a record of the longest kiss of 80 minutes and 44 seconds is still waiting to be broken.

「親吻我」的主要活動是看誰親吻得最久,傳統上贏家會得到獎賞。親吻的舞台上,最老的和最吸睛的情侶通常也會被選到,而至今最長的親吻紀錄是八十分鐘又四十四秒,還等著情侶們打破呢!

把鎖扣在橋上的愛情故事

A beautiful, but a bit sad story is related to the one of the most popular meeting points for couples in love and at the same time the most interesting tourist attraction of Vrnjačka Banja. There is almost no resident who wouldn’t know to say a few words about a great love of a teacher named Nada and Serbian officer Relja. Just before the World War I, two young people fell in love and swore on the eternal love. Their happiness was ruined by Relja’s departure for Greece on the battlefield.

Vrnjačka Banja這個地方,有一個美麗卻有點悲傷的故事,發生在這個情侶們最有名和有趣的約會景點,這裡的居民沒有人不知道這段愛情故事。一位叫Nada的老師和塞爾維亞的軍官 Relja兩人的愛情故事。在第一次世界大戰前,兩個年輕人墜入愛河而且發誓要永遠相愛,但他們的幸福卻因為Relja離開去希臘參加戰爭而破滅。

The officer falls in love with a Grecian girl there, and Nada, because of the great sorrow wanes every day and dies in the end, young and unhappy. Shaken by her destiny, girls who wanted to save their love, started to tie padlocks to the bridge, and throw the key symbolically into the water. This custom was forgotten for some time, but one of the most important Serbian poets Desanka Maksimović has brought it back to life.

這位軍官和當地的希臘女孩相戀,而Nada因為每天過度悲傷,最後年紀輕輕就抑鬱地過世了。因為她的遭遇而受到震動,為了要守護愛情的女孩們,就開始把鎖扣在橋上,並且象徵性地把鑰匙丟掉。這個傳統曾經被遺忘了一陣子,但是塞爾維亞的一位重要詩人讓這個習俗重新回到生活中。

Inspired by this tragic story, Desanka writes one of her most beautiful poems and calls it “A prayer for love”. The custom of tying a padlock to the bridge is being revived with this song, and a memory of the great love continues to be cherished and transferred to the new generations.

受到這個悲劇的啟發, Desanka寫了一首她最美麗的詩 “A prayer for love”,而這個把鎖扣在橋上的習俗也因為這首歌而重新活了過來,於是,一個美好愛情的回憶繼續被珍惜而且一代一代地流傳。

We want to spend this day in a most beautiful way with our loved ones, to give and receive the love because it is the most sublime emotion you can feel.

我們想要和愛的人用最美麗的方式度過這一天,去付出和接受愛,因為這是你所能感覺到最崇高的感情。
