Serbia and Montenegro borders on Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania and Macedonia.
The northern part is, for the most part, flat country, the central part is hilly and mountainous and the southern part is littoral.

The River Danube flows into Serbia near Bezdan. The first Serbian city the great river reaches is Novi Sad, capital of the Vojvodina. The town is dominated by the mighty fortress of Petrovaradin, one of the largest fortifications in Europe.
Seventy kilometers downstream lies Belgrade where the imposing Kalemegdan fortress guards the confluence of Sava and Danube. Under the Romans the city was called Alba Graeca, while the Celts knew it as Singidunum. Belgrade is known for its many museums, in particular the National Museum and Ethnographic Museum. The artists' quarter Skadarlija is also well worth a visit.
