Serbia Culture, Geography and History
Geography and Environment of Serbia
A landlocked country in the centre of the Balkan Peninsula, Serbia shares a border with 8 nations, as well as the disputed territory of Kosovo in the south. The Danube River runs left to right across the northern half of the country, providing a valuable trading route with Eastern Europe. The capital, Belgrade, lies between the Danube and Sava rivers, surrounded by hilly terrain near the centre of the city and mountains to the south.
Overall, the landscape of Serbia is quite varied. The top of the country is home to the Pannonian Plains, an expansive lowland area that is primarily used for agriculture. The rest of the country is a mixture of alpine areas, limestone mountains, valleys, thick pine forests and rolling green hills. Serbia's tallest peak, Mt Deravica (2,656 m), is located in the Dinaric Alps, near the border of Albania. Glacial lakes are common in this region and often make for a spectacular sight.
