Serbia, officially known as the Republic of Serbia is a landlocked country in the Balkans, that shares borders with Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, and Albania/Kosovo.

It has been inhabited since the Paleolithic ages, a fact that can be attested to by the human fragments found in the Sicevo Gorge.

Various rulers and settlements have come and gone since then, and the country has withstood wars and revolutions.

While cities in Serbia show signs of modernization and varied industry, the ancient mountains and beautiful valleys are filled with villages and towns to explore.
