Explanation:
This is the true, original greeting, written in Cyrillic alphabet. Switch to the Cyrillic (Windows) encoding in order to see it properly.

The Latin transcription is the following:
Hristos voskrese! Vaistinu voskrese!

These sentences are not spoken in modern Serbian, but in the Old-Slavic language which was spoken until about a century ago. Nowadays it is spoken only in churches.

In modern Serbian this greeting could be translated as follows:
Hrist uskrse! Uistinu uskrse!
or
Hrist uskrse! Zaista uskrse!

Hope this helps (will help next year :-)
