Ethnic map of Serbia

Serbians (Serbian: Србијанци or Srbijanci) are people who live in, or come from, Serbia. It includes people of different ethnicities. Serbians should not be confused with Serbs, who are members of an ethnic group present in many different countries.

Serbians include various ethnic groups which live in Serbia: Serbs, Hungarians, Bosniaks, Roma, Albanians, Slovaks, Croats, Romanians, Bulgarians, Montenegrins, and others.

Another usage refers to people who are from Central Serbia, and does not cover Vojvodina or Kosovo-Metohia. In this case, it usually refers only to Serbs, and distinguishes the Serbs of Central Serbia from those from other regions ( those that were not part of the Principality of Serbia and the Kingdom of Serbia between 1878 and 1912), such as Vojvodina, Montenegro, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Krajina and so on.

However, Serbs who live in Serbia do not like to be called Srbijanci and they find it insulting.
