Serbia is in south eastern Europe, a part of what was once Yugoslavia until it broke up in the 1990s.
There are also Serbian populations in neighbouring Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovnia.
The Serbian language is part of the slavic group, so it is a bit like Russian, Bulgarian, etc.

I am leaving out a lot of history. It is very complex and controversial. Read it for yourself and decide who was to blame for the war crimes and genocides of the 1990s.

I know it is a country, but I’m really bad at topography, so I’m not sure where it is. I also recall something that it split up very peacefully with mo….thingy. Or perhaps that was another country that split up from what-was-it before that. Yeah, I suck at such things :P

Just following up on my previous answer:
There’s a lot more to Serbia than its tragic recent history.
It is a beautiful country, one which is largely ignored by the tourism industry.

I passed through it a number of times when it was still part of Yugoslavia. The cities tend to be a bit grey and grim, but a lot of the countryside is fantastic.

Tennis fans are starting to really take note of Serbia because a lot of young Serbs are rising through the ranks. That’s another positive.

And they won the Eurovision Song Contest this year. So the contest will be hosted there next year.

Of course i know where it is! I live there!

Well, ppl it is a beautiful country (if you mean of its natural treasures), but it’s certainly not a really good place to live… There’s too much corruption, retarded politicians, and the history is interesting but sad (because it’s full of wars).

@QuizMaster: There are almost no Serbs in Croatia, because they were all outcasted during the war in 1990s.
