The Republic of Serbia is a country located at the crossroads of Central and Southeastern Europe. 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. Belgrade, Serbia’s capital city is among the most populous in Southeastern Europe.
It is landlocked, although access to the Adriatic is available through Montenegro, and the Danube River provides shipping access to inland Europe and the Black Sea.
Apart from the Danube, which flows 588 km through Serbia or as a border river, the chief rivers are its tributaries Sava, Tisa, Drina and Morava.
