Folklore of Serbia

Serbia is one of Europe’s most culturally diverse countries with incredibly rich Cultural Inheritance. The borders between large empires ran through the territory of today’s Serbia for long periods in history: between the Eastern and Western halves of the Roman Empire; and between the Ottoman Empire and the Austrian Empire /later Austria and Hungary/.

In the era of globalization, cultural heritage is of vital importance for a better understanding and respect among the peoples.
