Geography, size

Serbia is located in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula, on the most important route linking Europe and Asia. Occupying an area of 88 361 km2, Serbia is referred to as the cross-roads of Europe – international roads and railways pass through with its river valleys providing the shortest link between Western and Central Europe, and the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
