Serbia is extremely varied; to the north, rich fertile plains; to the east, limestone ranges and basins; to the southeast, ancient mountains and hills.

About Serbia and the capital, Belgrade
The national flag of Serbia
Borderline map of Serbia
Flag description: three equal horizontal stripes of red (top), blue, and white – the Pan-Slav colors representing freedom and revolutionary ideals; charged with the coat of arms of Serbia shifted slightly to the hoist side; the principal field of the coat of arms represents the Serbian state and displays a white two-headed eagle on a red shield; a smaller red shield on the eagle represents the Serbian nation, and is divided into four quarters by a white cross; interpretations vary as to the meaning and origin of the white, curved symbols resembling firesteels or Cyrillic “C’s” in each quarter; a royal crown surmounts the coat of arms. Note: the Pan-Slav colors were inspired by the 19th-century flag of Russia.
Belgrade (Београд; Beograd) is a lively, high-energy city, especially in spring and summer, when all ages throng the streets at all hours. With a seemingly endless supply of bars and clubs, the city’s pulsing nightlife is one of the unexpected high points on any European itinerary. The town sits at a strategic position on the junction of the Danube and Sava rivers, something that has proved a source of weakness as well as strength over the ages: Belgrade has been captured as many as sixty times by Celts, Romans, Huns, Avars and more.
The onslaught continued right through the twentieth century when the city suffered heavy shelling during World War II and in 1999 withstood 78 days of NATO airstrikes. Visually, the mingling and merging of architectural styles can be off-putting, particularly when a row of beautiful older frontages is interrupted by a postwar interloper. Yet this mishmash also makes the city what it is: alongside all the Yugoslav experimentation, the grand nineteenth-century buildings and Art Nouveau facades bear eloquent witness to the days of Ottoman and Austro- Hungarian rule.
Did you know about Serbia?
Serbia was a kingdom, until conquered by theTurks. It regained independence in the 19th century, Yugoslavia united in 1919, but separated 1991-2006.
The medieval Serbian Empire reached into northern Greece.
The Serbs are Orthodox Christians and share a language with the Croats, although they use different scripts to write it down.
Serbia is a buzzy and boisterous country, compact enough for visitors to sample both Belgrade’s urban hedonism and the gentler pace of the smaller towns or national parks within a few days – and it’s one of Europe’s most affordable destinations to boot. Grittier than its blue-eyed neighbor Croatia, it is nevertheless an integral part of any backpacker’s Balkan tour. At the heart of the region, it gives easy access to the cluster of cultures and histories crammed into this small corner of Europe.
