Abstract

In 2017, 160 years were marked since the beginning of the organized physical exercise (1857) and 126 years since the emergence of Sokol movement in Serbia (1891). The great contribution of Academics Steva Todorovic, Dr. Vladan Djordjevic and Dr. Vojislav Rasic to the beginning and development of physical culture in the Principality and the Kingdom of Serbia, was evoked. 160 years since the arrival of Academic Stevan Todorovic in the capital of Belgrade, in which he started his cultural and enlightenment work in 1857, was also denoted. At the "School of Painting" which he opened, "Group for Gymnastics and Fighting" was also founded, as the first organized association for physical exercise. This Group preceded the idea of acceptance of "Sokolstvo", the development of modern sport and the affirmation of physical culture in Serbia. The aim of this paper is to highlight the contribution of academic Steva Todorovic to the overall cultural and educational progress of Serbia, including physical culture. The historical method was compiled of authentic documents from 1899, 1908, 1912, 1927, 1938 which were not available and known to the wider and professional public, gymnastic and Sokol membership.
