Serbian Alps

The Serbian Alps are part of the Dinaric Alps, which lie in the South eastern part of the continent. This mountain range includes a significant part of the country.4 different mountain ranges lie in this country. This will mean that this country will feature in a variety of mountain range pages. In the East of the country, the great Carpathian mountain chain also lies, along with the Balkan mountains chain. Finally the Rila-Rhodope mountain system lies in the far South of the country. This wide range of mountains, not surprisingly, mean that much of the country remains wild, meaning that the country could support large populations of various wildlife.


A view of the Serbian Alps


Wolves are not treated well, with these animals widely shot poisoned and trapped. As such, the remaining population of around 500 wild wolves, seems higher than we should expect. Increased tourism might well lead to a more nuanced discussion over these predators.

Bears are unfortunately even less healthy from a population standpoint in the country, with a population of 50-60. Never the less, if well treated, bear populations are capable of bouncing back relatively quickly. These bears form a bigger population with countries in the area. As such, genetically they are more healthy than these numbers might lead people to think.

Serbia contains part of the range of the Balkan Lynx which is spread across Albania, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Croatia and possibly even Northern Greece. Given that this entire population numbers only around 60-120 in size, it is incredibly rare.

The Balkan Lynx only has a population of 60-120 spread across Albania, Kosovo and North Macedonia. There are also thought to be some in Serbia Montenegro and greece.(opens in a new tab)
