Serbia is a European country located in the west-central Balkans. It has an area of 29,922 sq mi (77,498 sq km) and a population (2009) of approximately 7,320,000. The capital is Belgrade.

Serbia is mountainous, with forests in the central area and low-lying plains in the north. Here, the Danube River can be seen meandering across the middle of the image.

The Danube River winds its way across this orthorectified image, providing the border between Romania (above), Serbia (left) and Bulgaria (lower center to right). It is the longest river in the European Union. Although only three countries are visible here, the Danube actually flows through or along the border of 10 different nations.

The river originates in the Black Forest in Germany and flows eastwards for a distance of some 2850 km (1771 miles), passing through four Central and Eastern European capitals, before emptying into the Black Sea via the Danube Delta in Romania and Ukraine.

Of the 10 countries through which or along the borders of which it passes, the following percentage of its length is found in each: Germany (7.5%), Austria (10.3%), Slovakia (5.8%), Hungary (11.7%), Croatia (4.5%), Serbia (10.3%), Romania (28.9%), Bulgaria (5.2%), Moldova (0.017%), and Ukraine (3.8%).

The Danube River flows across eastern Serbia (left) and into Romania (right). After entering Romania, it receives water from tributary rivers flowing down from the Southern Carpathian Mountains, visible here as a dark green ridge in the upper right quadrant.

The land north of the Danube is green with many dark green and tan patches, as this area below the mountains has many marshes and swamps. South of the river, much of the land is used for agriculture and many fields are visible.

This image focuses on Hungary, a landlocked country in the Carpathian Basin of Central Europe, bordered by Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia. Part of Italy is also visible on the lower left, as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina on the lower right.

Slightly more than one half of Hungary’s landscape consists of flat to rolling plains of the Pannonian Basin: the most important plain regions include the Little Hungarian Plain in the west, and the Great Hungarian Plain in the southeast. The highest elevation above sea level on the latter is only 183 metres.

Transdanubia is a primarily hilly region with a terrain varied by low mountains. These include the very eastern stretch of the Alps, Alpokalja, in the west of the country, the Transdanubian Medium Mountains, in the central region of Transdanubia, and the Mecsek Mountains and Villány Mountains in the south. The highest point of the area is the Írott-kő in the Alps, at 882 metres.

The highest mountains of the country are located in the Carpathians: these lie in the northern parts, in a wide band along the Slovakian border. The highest point is the Kékes at 1,014 m (3327 ft).

Hungary is divided in two by its main waterway, the Danube (Duna); other large rivers include the Tisza and Dráva, while Transdanubia contains Lake Balaton, a major body of water.
