Exploring Serbian Culture
Serbia is a land-locked country located on the Balkan Peninsula in Europe. The north of the country is flat, while the central and southern parts are hilly or mountainous. Hear the buzz of lively conversations in the streets, and enjoy the lovely and diverse landscape with mountains, plains and rivers. Serbians are often laid back, best summarized in the phrase nema problema—no problem! But don’t be surprised that Serbs are also outgoing and talkative, always ready to share their culture.
Thanks to its eventful history, Serbia has a variety of cultural and architectural monuments –medieval monasteries with their fresco paintings and icons, beautiful mosques, medieval and Austro-Hungarian fortresses, baroque churches. Serbian culture has a very rich folklore, which consists of national traditions and customs, traditional costumes which differ from one region to another, folk dances, and songs.
