Serbia is a country situated in South-East Europe, in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. Serbia borders on Macedonia in the south, Bulgaria and Romania in the east, Hungary in the north, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the west, and Montenegro and Albania in the south-west. The country covers an area of 88,400 sq km.
Relief. Much of Serbia lies in the intermountain fertile plains and Danube and Tisa Valleys. East Serbia is occupied by low hilly ridges, while the south-eastern part is occupied by medium mountain ranges. The Kopaonik Range is situated in the north. The highest peak of the country is Peak Daravitsa (2,656 m), part of the Prokletie Mountains.
Rivers. Serbia's rivers belong to the basins of the Black, Adriatic and Aegean seas. Serbia's largest river, the Danube, runs through Serbia for 588 km. Other rivers flowing through the territory of Serbia include such rivers as the Sava, the Timish, the Morava with its tributaries South Morava and West Morava, the Tisa, the Kolubava, the Ibar, the Nera, the Nishava, the Timok and the Mlava.
National Parks and Reserves. In Serbia, there are 5 national parks: Mount Kopaonik, Tara Canyon, Shara, Fruska Gora and Dzherdap, the only gorge of the Danube River. Serbia's protected areas also include Obedska-Bog, Lake Ladasko, Charska-Bog, such reserves as Deliblatska-Pescara, Dyavolya-Varos, Zasavitsa, Karadzhordevo, Vrelo-Mlave, Krupazhsko-Vrelo, Lake Vlasinsko, as well as the canyons of the Uvach and the Gradach Rivers.
The capital of Serbia, Belgrade (Beograd), is a special city. The first settlements on the territory of the city appeared more than 3,000 years ago, and since that time there has not been a century without wars and battles of opposing armies and bloodbaths. This explains why the city has a bizarre mixture of Eastern and Western cultures, which gives modern Belgrade a unique charm.
The city of Nis is a historical crossroads between Eastern and Western Europe, between the cultures of Asia Minor and Europe, on the one hand, and between the Slavic world and the Islamic world, on the other.
Subotica is the most northern city of Serbia, where more than half the people speak Hungarian, and therefore the city and its environs are quite a unique place with distinct national identities.
Serbian tourism is mostly based on a huge variety of landscapes, an abundance of historical and cultural monuments, health resorts and hunting and fishing grounds. The country is criss-crossed by air and rail tracks from Western Europe and Central Europe to Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
Currently, there are over 20 health centers in Serbia, such as the Zlatibor Plateau, with the famous Chigota sanatorium, Buyanovachka Banja, Vrnyachka Banja, Nishska Banja, Soko Banja and Banja Koviljaca.
The Balkan Mountains offer excellent conditions for winter tourism. The villages of Kopaonik, Tara, Sara and Fruska Gora, famous for their beauty, have been declared national parks.
Zlatibor is a well-known center of sports and recreational tourism in the country. Other well-known resorts include Mount Goch, Divchibare, Buyanovachka Banja and Vrnyachka Banja.
