Serbia is a landlocked country, predominantly flat in the north as it spreads over the Pannonian Plain, and hilly and mountainous in the south. Around half of Serbia's land is arable, and is mostly located in the northern part of the country, Vojvodina, and offers ideal infrastructure for agro tourism. The mountainous region boasts several canyons, gorges and caves and is ideal for adventure travel and extreme sports. A total of 15 peaks are higher than 2000m, with Đeravica in the Prokletije range being the highest at 2656m. Ski hubs of Kopaonik, Zlatibor and Stara Planina attract numerous winter sports fans from the country and abroad.
