Serbia is in the heart of Europe, just in the middle of the Balkan peninsula. Find the Italy on map, and it won't be difficult to find Serbia,just across Adriatic sea, between her neighbors Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia and Montenegro. Serbia and its people are temperamental, and likes everyone who come to our country.
