Spomenik Vuku.

Pogled na spomenik Vuku u Nisu.
Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, lingvist, folklorist i etnograf. Reformator cirilicnog alfabeta sto se, uz latinicni alfabet, upotrebljava u srpskohrvatskome, stvorivsi jedan od najjednostavnijih i najlogicnijih pravopisnih sistema. Zbog rada na prikupljanju i objavljivanju blaga narodnog stvaralastva, smatra se ocem srpske narodne knjizevnosti.
U prvoj polovini 19. veka, uz pomoc tadasnjih vrhunskih filologa, kao sto su braca Grim i austrijskih vlasti koje je predstavljao Jernej Kopitar, Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic je reformisao srpsku otografiju i pravopis.
Roden je 6. novembra 1787. u Trsicu u porodici u kojoj su deca umirala, pa je po narodnom obicaju, dobio ime Vuk kako mu vestice ne bi naudile.
Umro je 6. februara 1864. u Becu. Njegove kosti prenesene su u Beograd 1897. godine i sa velikim pocastima sahranjene u porti Saborne crkve.

Monument to Vuku.

View of Vuk Monument in Nis.
Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, linguist, folklorist and ethnographer. A cyrillic alphabet reformer, which, along with the Latin alphabet, is used in Serbo-Croatian, creating one of the simplest and most logical spelling systems. Due to the work on collecting and publishing the treasures of folk creativity, he is considered to be the father of Serbian folk literature.
In the first half of the 19th century, with the help of the then top-ranked philologists, such as the brothers of the Grim and the Austrian authorities represented by Jernej Kopitar, Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic reformed Serbian otography and spelling.
He was born on November 6, 1787 in Trsic, in a family where children were dying, and according to folk tradition, he was named Vuk, so that witches would not hurt him.
He died on 6 February 1864 in Vienna. His bones were transferred to Belgrade in 1897 and with great honor they were buried in the port of the Cathedral Church.
