The rugged mountains, hills and valleys of the Dinaric Alps slice through Serbia west of the Morava River, while the toothy-edged Balkan Mountains form its natural borders with Bulgaria and Romania.

The highest point in Serbia is Deravica on Prokletije rising to 8,713 ft. (2,656 m) in the region of Kosovo.

A fertile river floodplain (the Pannonian) stretches from Belgrade north to the borders with Croatia, Hungary and Romania.

Natural lakes in Serbia are rare as a result of the rugged terrain, and the ones that do exist -such as the glacial lake Palic- are mostly located in Vojvodina.

Serbia's largest artificial lake, resulting from a hydroelectric dam, is Derdap located on the Danube.

Significant rivers include the Danube, Drina, Lim, Morava, Sava and Tara.
