Previously Serbo-Croatian, nowadays Serbian

Serbian is an Indo-European language and belongs to the South Slavic language family. The oldest literary texts in Serbian date back to the Middle Ages. The preserved texts include the Serbian Alexandride, an epic tale about the life of Alexander the Great, and a translation of Tristan and Iseult.

Serbian – the sister of Slovak and Croatian

Phonetically, the language closest to Serbian from all the Slavic languages is Slovak. If you ever go to Serbia or Montenegro, don’t worry if you can’t speak the language. In maritime regions, English or Russian will do.

In addition to Slovak, Serbian is also very close to Croatian. The main difference between these two languages is that Serbian took more loanwords from Russian while Croatian maintained more of a traditional Slavic form.


Serbian is the official language of Serbia and of the already mentioned Republic of Montenegro. It’s also the language of the Serbian people in Bosnia and Herzegovina and a minority language in Croatia, Macedonia, and in some other European countries (for example in Slovenia, Romania, Germany, Austria, Switzerland).

Serbian is spoken by approximately 9.5 million people. The predominant Serbian writing system is Cyrillic, but they also use the Latin script, especially when using the computer or the Internet. The Serbian alphabet contains 30 letters.
