About Serbia

Serbia is what is left of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia; after the break away independence of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Slovenia.

Driving From Belgrade.

Serbian Republic

Countries neighbouring Serbia are: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo and Montenegro.

Map of Serbia

The Ottoman Turks ruled what is now Serbia from the 15th to 19th centuries, and that is evident by some of the architecture and cultural influences that they left behind.

World War I was started after a Serb nationalist assassinated Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria and his wife, Czech Countess Sophie Chotek, in Sarajevo; then a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire towards the end of World War I inspired the South Slav independence movement.

King Alexander I of Serbia tried to rule the Land of South Slavs, but was himself assassinated, while in France on a diplomatic mission, by a Macedonian terrorist connected with Croatian separatist groups, in 1934.

Weather in Europe:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around Europe.


In the words of French poet, Alphonse Lamartine, the history of the Serbs should be sung, not written about.

The Republic of Serbia contains two autonomous provinces: Vojvodina and Kosovo-Metohija.

Culture of Serbia:
Although Serbia has for centuries been the scene of frequent wars, devastation, fires and mass-migrations, on the turbulent roads leading from East to Europe and from Europe to the East, a rich cultural and historical legacy has remained there.

National Parks:
Don't just think Belgrade, there are plenty of national parks and limestone caves in Serbia too.

Serbian Government:
The Republic of Serbia aims to take on the obligations of the EU membership by the end of 2018; in order to become an EU Member State at the beginning of the following EU budgetary period.


Though Belgrade is not amongst the most popular travel destinations of Europe, the city offers a lot of attractions to its visitors.

The Serbian capital is one of the oldest towns in this part of Europe. The remains of its long and turbulent history still exist on a hill overlooking the mouth of two rivers, the Sava and the Danube.

Belgrade Airport:
The Nikola Tesla Airport is 18km west of Belgrade, on the road to Zagreb.

If you arrive in Belgrade by air, JAT Airways runs a shuttle service between the airport and Hotel Slavija (Slavija square) - leaving the airport every hour between 07:00 and 22:00. The journey takes about 30 minutes, with stops in Novi Beograd and at the railway station.

Bus #72 leaves the airport every 30 minutes.

Belgrade Taxi:
Offer fixed price sightseeing tours of all the historical Belgrade landmarks and historical buildings, along with the usual airport service and transfers to any town in Serbia.

Belgrade has the status of a separate territorial unit in Serbia, having its own autonomous city government. Its territory is divided into 17 municipalities, each having their own local governmental bodies.

Visit Nis:
Situated by the river Nišava, the city of Niš is one of the oldest cities in the Balkans and the third largest city in Serbia; after Belgrade and Novi Sad.

Novi Sad

Traditionally hospitable and spiritually ambitious builders of Novi Sad have shaped the capital of Vojvodina on the foundations of cultural heritage and economic development and made it a city whose most attractive motifs are easily recognisable.

Learning Serbian can not be done in a day, or even a week, but you can get a grasp of the Serbian language by listening to common Serbian words and phrases online; even while waiting for your flight to Belgrade at the airport.
