Language of Serbia

Official language in Serbia is Serbia (what a suprise). Although in some regions people speak Hungarian, Albanian, Slovak, Romanian and Ruthenian.

 

Religion in Serbia

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%).
