The capital of Serbia is Belgrade, its largest city. Belgrade is situated at the point where the Sava and Danube rivers meet.

The Danube β€” the second-longest river in Europe β€” dominates Serbia’s northern landscape, while the south is largely mountainous. The central region is a combination of rivers, hills, and low mountains. Four mountain systems meet in Serbia: the Dinaric Alps, the Carpathians, the Balkans, and the Rila-Rhodope. The highest point in Serbia is MidΕΎor in the Balkan Mountain Range. The country’s longest river is the Danube; its largest lake is Đerdap Lake.

Most of Serbia has a temperate continental climate. Summers are hot, and winters are cold, with heavy snowfall in the mountain regions. There can be sudden changes in temperature due to cold air masses originating in the country itself and warm air masses from the Mediterranean Sea or Africa. Most of the country experiences rainfall during June.

Serbia is a parliamentary republic. The President is the head of the state, and the Prime Minister is the head of the government. The government is divided into executive, legislative, and judiciary branches.
