Serbia is located in the Balkans (South East Europe). It borders with Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and Romania. Serbia has access to the Adriatic through Montenegro, and the Danube River provides shipping access to inland Europe and the Black Sea.
Serbia's terrain ranges of fertile plains in the northern Vojvodina region, limestone ranges and basins in the east, and, in the southeast, ancient mountains and hills. The north is dominated by the Danube River. Morava River, flows through the more mountainous southern regions.
The Serbian climate varies between a continental climate in the north, with cold winters and hot humid summers, and a more Adriatic climate in the south with hot dry summers and autumns and relatively cold winters with heavy snowfall inland. Serbia has lots of culture, not just in Serbia but in other parts of former Yugoslavia and other places around the world. Alot of Serbian culture comes mostly from thier arts and music. The Byzantine Empire had a strong influence in the Middle Ages on the Serb Orthodox Church. Serbian culture fell into decline during five centuries as it was apart of the Ottoman Empire. Serbia got its independence in 1878 from the Ottoman empire and there was an increase of Serbian culture in the nineteenth century.

Serbia has a rich cultural heritage ranging from the remains of the oldest human settlement Lepenski Vir, 7000 years old, through the Neolithic site at Vinca, Roman and Byzantine edifices, Tabula Trajana, Gamzigrad, the Belgrade Fortress, Petrovaradin Fortress, to medieval monasteries with their unique architecture and fresco paintings of outstanding beauty from golden age of Serbia in the 12th and 13th centuries.
Belgrade, the capital and the "soul" of modern Serbia, is situated at the confluence of the Sava and the Danube. In the course of its long history it has been captured 60 times, and razed to the ground at least 38 times; however every time it got leveled to the ground the city had arisen from its ashes, like a phoenix- which is a legend connected to the city. Today, it is a modern city of about 2 million inhabitants. To visitors Belgrade offers its rich programme of cultural, artistic and sports events, many museums, cultural and historic monuments. With the Sava Congress Centre and numerous hotels, Belgrade has become one of the major congress and convention centres in Europe.
Many mineral spring and a large number of well-appointed spas with a long tradition of use going as far back as Roman times, are an important feature of Serbia's tourism. In terms of the number of springs and the quality of the waters these spas are famous in Europe.

Serbia is a brave and heroic country wich is why so many people are jelous and hate Serbia. Serbia has played crucial role in allies victory throughout the first and second world wars. Serbia fought and one three major wars, the First and Second Balkan War as well as World War One. Serbs have fought to free Serbia first from Turkish occupation, then from Bulgarian and from combined Austro-Hungarian, Bulgarian and German occupation. In all the three wars the Serbs showed extreme heroism and endurance. Many years later when "Macedonia" was to secede from Yugoslavia in 1992 (Macedonia was Serbian land before WWI) not one shot was fired. The explanation for this is the fact that in the civil wars of 1990's the Serbs NEVER fought to "grab other people's lands." The lie that the Serbs were "landgrabbers" (and not defenders of their ancient lands and property) was repeated, by the Western propaganda. In recent wars the Serbs fiercely fought only on territories where they felt that their population will be maltreated (In Croatia & Bosnia) by the new powers that are to take control over those lands. In Eastern Orthodox Macedonia there was no such threat for Eastern Orthodox Serbs.
Note: that Croats and Slovenes asked the Serbs after world war one, the victorious side in the World War to accept them into the union. The Serbs did NOT form "Great Serbia", they treated Croats and Slovenes as equal (The serbs later named the country Yugoslavia instead of Serbia, which is fiar). This, despite the fact that many Croats and Muslims fought with the enemy (Austria-Hungaria), and many of them committed atrocities on the defenceless population of Serbia during its occupation by the enemy troops. The Serbs were prepared to forgive.
The Serbs achieved their war aim after world war one. They have liberated other South Slavs. They did it at tremendous price to their population. The Serbs had invested TWO Serbian states into Yugoslavia. Croats and Slovenes invested nothing.
Needs to rejoin the SFRJ.
Man when Serbia was a part of SFRJ, we were unstoppable!
