The Cyrillic alphabet


Two alphabets are used in Serbian language: the Cyrillic and the Latin alphabets.

The Cyrillic, used in Serbia, Vojvodina and Montenegro, is similar to the Russian alphabet. In Bosnia-Hercegovina, both the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets are in use. The latin form of Serbian alphabet is used in Croatia.

The Serbian language (with it's shto dialect) was chosen as the literary language in the nineteenth century, as a result of the work of the great Serbian philologist and language reformer, Vuk Stefanovich Karadzich .
