Õðèñòîñ âîñêðåñå! Âàèñòèíó âîñêðåñå!

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!
Hrist uskrse! Zaista uskrse!

Hope this helps (will help next year :-)
