Republic of Serbia is a country located in both Central and Southeastern Europe. Its territory covers the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and central part of the Balkans. Serbia borders Hungary to the north; Romania and Bulgaria to the east; the Republic of Macedonia to the south; and Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro to the west. Although Albania, to the southwest, shares no borders with Serbia proper, it does border Kosovo, whose status as either a part of Serbia or a new independent state is currently a matter of international controversy. Belgrade is the capital of Serbia and the largest city.
