Country File: Serbia

For today’s Country File, we’re heading to the center of the Balkans to a country whose borders have a significant amount of controversy attached —

— namely, whether its province of Kosovo is a province or a country, but we’ll take that up later, today we’ll be following the official UNESCO status —

Republika Srbija, commonly known as Serbia!

Flag of Serbia

Serbia joined UNESCO on 20 December 2000, making it a real country by everywhs.com‘s standard, and it has 5 inscribed and 12 tentative World Heritage Sites:

Inscribed:
Gamzigrad-Romuliana, Palace of Galerius
Medieval Monuments in Kosovo
Stari Ras and Sopoćani
Stećci Medieval Tombstone Graveyards
Studenica Monastery

Tentative:
Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe (Serbia)
Caričin Grad – Iustiniana Prima, archaeological site
Djerdap National Park
Fortified Manasija Monastery
Frontiers of the Roman Empire (WHS FRE)
Historical place of Bač and its Surroundings
Mt. Sara National Park
Negotinske Pivnice
Smederevo Fortress
The Deliblato Sands Special Natural Reserve
The Djavolja Varos (Devil’s Town) Natural Landmark
The Tara National Park with the Drina River Canyon

TCC and MTP both count Serbia as two places — Serbia proper, and the province of Kosovo as a separate place.
