Geographical Position in EuropeSerbia is situated in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula, on the most important roads which connect Europe and Asia, covering an area of 88.361 km2. It is in the Western European Time Zone (GMT+1). The climate of Serbia is moderately continental with gradual change between the seasons.

Serbia is a crossroads of Europe and geo-politically important territory. International highways and railroads that pass through valleys of its rivers make the shortest connection between the Western and the Central Europe, on one side, and Middle East, Asia, and Africa on the other. These roads follow the path of the Morava River valley that separates in two directions near the city of Nis. One of them follows the Juzna Morava River and the valley of the Vardar River to Thessaloniki, and the other one goes along the Nisava River towards Sofia and Istanbul. Rivers of Serbia belong to basins of the Black, Adriatic, and Aegean Seas. Three of them are navigable: the Danube, the Sava, and the Tisa River. The longest one is the Danube River, which runs through Serbia with 588 km out of 2,875 km of the total length. The Danube Basin has always been important for Serbia. In September 1992, when the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal was completed, the Black Sea and Middle and Far East ports become much closer to Europe. Blegrade - Bar railroad connects Serbia with Adriatic Sea and Montenegro.

The northern part of Serbia – Vojvodina – is mostly lowland terrain, while the central and the southern parts are hilly and mountainous. Valleys are in the Pannonian Basin and its borderline: Macva, Posavina, Pomoravlje, Stig, and Negotinska krajina in the Eastern Serbia. Serbia has 55 % of cultivable land, while 27% is covered by forests. Fifteen summits reach the height of over 2000m, with Djeravica summit on the Prokletije Mountains being the highest one (2,656 m).

  Geographical Position in Europe The length of Serbia’s borders is 2,114.2 km. Serbia borders Bulgaria on the East, with Romania on the north-eastern side, with Hungary on the North, and with Bosnia & Herzegovina and Croatia on the West. Its neighbouring country on the south-western side is Montenegro, while the county borders with Albania and FRY Macedonia on the South.
