Why 7526?
Some of the mostly nationalist media outlets, had previously stated that the year was “7526.”, actually calculating the time by the “Byzantine calendar” or “the old Serbian calendar”.

The calendar, which counts 7526, reportedly records the time since Noah’s flood, which, according to the allegations, is; the media reportedly happened about 8,000 years ago, and they claim that “the existence of this calendar did not fit the ideological creators of history because it does not fit into the accepted theories about the emergence of Serbs.”

According to these theories, the year in the “Serbian calendar” is divided into summer and winter. The summer begins on May 6 and winter on November 8, which – again allegedly – coincides with the solar calendar, that is, electromagnetic changes of the Sun.
