This page describes style and naming conventions that are currently used in articles on Serbia-related topics. Please discuss proposed significant changes at the talk page, announcing them at the Serbia project talk page.



Naming of articles should follow the Wikipedia:Article titles policy and the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (use English) guideline. When applying these conventions, preference should be given to sources specialized on the subject rather than general material. For cases where no established name exists in the English language, or where multiple romanization variants are available, follow the romanization rules outlined in Romanization of Serbian.

Administrative divisions of Serbia[edit]

Use the following terms to refer to the administrative divisions:

Inhabited localities[edit]

For the inhabited localities which have a status of grad, both "city" and "town" can be used in English; Cities in administrative sense are defined by the Law on Territorial Organization. Use "city" for larger and "town" for smaller ones: see List of cities in Serbia for proper application. Do not use the term "town" to refer to urban-type settlements.

Naming of articles on the inhabited localities in Serbia follows the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names)#Serbia guideline.
