Topic: Central Serbia


  
  Central Serbia Information
Central Serbia (Serbian: Centralna Srbija or Централна Србија), also referred to as Serbia proper, is the region of Serbia that lies outside the northern and southern autonomous provinces of Vojvodina and Kosovo.
In 1913, Serbia further expanded its borders to the south and in 1918 to the north and south-west, and on November 28, 1918 united with the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs to form a Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes on December 1, 1918.
The region today known as Central Serbia did not had separate political status within the Kingdom, although in 1929, when new provinces of the Kingdom were formed, one of the provinces (Morava Banovina) was established in the eastern part of the present-day Central Serbia with its capital in Niš.

Serbia is bounded on the north by Hungary; on the east by Romania and Bulgaria; on the south by the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM); on the southwest by Albania; and on the west by Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia.
Most of Serbia can be divided into three regions: Vojvodina, a large province in the north containing fertile plains drained by the Danube, Sava, Tisza, and Morava rivers; Šumadija, a hilly and heavily populated area in central Serbia; and Kosovo, a mountainous province in the south.
Serbia’s economy was also damaged because large numbers of draft-age men, intellectuals, and artists fled after the wars began in the early 1990s, and because much of the republic’s economic resources were diverted to the military.

 Destroying Serbia
According to a representative sample of the population, an assessment was made in all the 16 Belgrade municipalities and 12 central municipalities of central Serbia and Vojvodina and it was established that in the period between 1990 and 1994, 320 thousand people of all education levels emigrated from the country.
Great social changes (indeed, shocks) which destroyed Serbia in the beginning of the nineties, starting with the war, nationalism, plunder of social property, inflation, emigration, all the way to total impoverishment of the population, were compared by the experts with the "organized chaos" registered in Germany at the time of nazi rule.
In the comprehensive investigation of a group of sociologists, the drastic changes in everyday life of the population are first observed from the aspect of "social structure collapse" of the former society, the sphere of labour, situation of the spirit, and mentality in urban environments.
