Official language in Serbia is Serbia
(what a suprise). Although in some regions people speak Hungarian,
Albanian, Slovak, Romanian and Ruthenian.
Most of Serbs belong to Orthodox
Church. Christianity plays an important role in the lives of these
people. For a long time monasteries and churches kept the spirit of
people and helped preserve Serbian national identity. Even if the person
might be very religious the institution of the Church is still highly
regarded. Besides the Republic of Serbia has a fairly large Muslim
community (5%) and Catholics (4%).
