About SerbiaSatellite view is showing the landlocked country in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula in southern Europe. Serbia is bordered by Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria,
Croatia, Hungary, the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, and Romania.
The former Principality of Serbia was conquered by the Turks in the 14th century and became part of the Ottoman Empire until 1878. But three Austria–Hungary invasions and numerous rebellions constantly challenged Ottoman rule. Between 1717 and 1739, the Austrian Empire regained the rule in Central Serbia and formed the "Kingdom of Serbia".
Serbian rivalry with the Austro-Hungarian Empire contributed to the outbreak of the First World War, after which Serbia was absorbed into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (later known as Yugoslavia from 1929–2003, with the capital Belgrade).

In the early 1990s, in times of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, four out of the six countries seceded the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. On the break-up of Yugoslavia Serbia remained in the federation with Montenegro until 2006.
