"Bosnia maybe called the 'heart-shaped land' but, as we are not as fortunate in terms of what our country looks like on the map, Serbia is a bit of a 'cigarette-butt-shaped land'.", Sukkiri, 2007

Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia (Serbian: Република Србија or Republika Srbija) is a landlocked country in Central and Southeastern Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. It is bordered by Hungary on the north; Romania and Bulgaria on the east; Albania and Macedonia on the south; and Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina on the west. The capital is Belgrade.

A modern state of Serbia emerged in 1817 following the Second Serbian Uprising. Later on, it expanded its territory further towards the south to include Kosovo and Metohija, Raška and Macedonia regions (in 1912). Finally, Vojvodina (former autonomous Habsburg province named Voivodship of Serbia and Tamiš Banat), proclaimed its secession from Austria-Hungary, and joined Serbia in 1918. The current borders of the country were established following the end of World War II, when Serbia became a federal unit within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Serbia became an independent state in 2006, after Montenegro seceeded from Serbia and Montenegro.

As this is in the Middle East/Africa subforum, I want to show you the new Serbia. During the 1960s and 1970s we were very close to Middle Eastern and African countries, and still are but not as much as before. Forget all of the stereotypes that Western media has fed you about Serbia being the 'poor backwater of Southern Europe'. Please, I want all of you to enjoy this thread, on behalf of all Serbs. :)

well uhmm, bosnia had something todo with midle east (religion, culture etc) but serbia?
Like I said, Serbia and African and Middle Eastern countries have traditionally good relations, some aspects of Serbian culture link up with the Middle East (cuisine, music, etc) just like Bosnia. So why not open up a thread about Serbia, and this sub forum includes Africa as well remember.

Nice photos, nice country.
Thank you :banana:

That's fine my friend :) 239,658 Muslims live in Serbia according to the 2002 census and around 8 Million people live in Serbia proper (making it around 3%). There are around 20 000 Serbs of the Islamic faith and most of them live in the southern area near the Montenegrin border. According to wikipedia, these are the main ethnic groups who are Muslim in Serbia - Albanians, Bosniaks, Muslims by nationality, Gorani, Turks, Arabs, Ashkali and Egyptians.

The country looks beautiful but are the people there as friendly as the pics look like?
Yes, but I can't assure you everyone is friendly, I mean you're going to find arrogant people all around the world right? But Serbs in general are very hospitable towards tourists.

BELGRADE - CAPTIAL CITY

Belgrade is the capital and largest city of Serbia, it's population was 1.5 Million at the 2002 census but recent estimates put it at around 2 Million. Belgrade has the status of a separate territorial unit in Serbia, with its own autonomous city government. Its territory is divided into 17 municipalities, each of which has its own local council. Belgrade spreads over 3.6% of the territory of Serbia, and 21% of the Serbian population (excluding that of the Kosovo province) lives in the city. It is the central economic hub of Serbia, and the capital of Serbian culture, education and science.

NOVI SAD

Novi Sad is Serbia's second largest city, after Belgrade. In its most recent official census from 2002, the city had an urban population of 216,583, while its municipal population was 299,294. The city is located on the border of the Bačka and Syrmia regions, on the banks of the Danube river and Danube-Tisa-Danube Canal, while facing the northern slopes of Fruška Gora mountain.

Since it was founded in 1694, Novi Sad became the centre of Serbian culture and earned its nickname Serbian Athens. Today, Novi Sad is a large industrial and financial centre of the Serbian economy; and it is also one of the biggest construction sites in the region.
