About Serbia

Serbia is a country situated at the crossroads of Central and Southeast Europe. Its northern part lies in the southern Pannonian Plain, while the central and southern portions belong to the central Balkans. For centuries it has been a land that connects East and West, a confluence of cultures, religions, landscapes and climates.

Although landlocked, Serbia is connected to distant seas via river Danube. Regarding geography and climate, it is also partly a Mediterranean country.

Serbian rich historical and cultural heritage starts with prehistoric archaeological sites and its legacy from classical antiquity. Some of many mediaeval Serbian churches and monasteries are part of the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Its capital city, Belgrade, ranks among the oldest and largest cities in Southeastern Europe. Besides Belgrade, most-visited tourist destinations are the city of Novi Sad, the mountains of Kopaonik and Zlatibor and the spa towns of Vrnjačka Banja and Sokobanja.

Serbia is a parliamentary republic, and an European Union membership candidate country since 2012.
