St Vitus's chapel, St Mark's cemetery, Sarajevo, 13 June 2014 1. According to the Julian calendar, still in use in Serbia in 1914, the assassination had taken place on 15 June, the feast of St Vitus. This date is important in Serb history. On St Vitus's day in 1389 the Serbs were defeated by the Ottoman Turks at the decisive battle of Kosovo, although a Serb managed to assassinate the Turkish sultan in his tent. This chapel is dedicated to St Vitus, and was built in 1939 to house the remains of Gavrilo Princip and other conspirators.
