Located between Croatia and Serbia, will Liberland be recognized as a ‘country’?
“Free Republic of Liberland is a sovereign state located between Croatia and Serbia on the west bank of the Danube river.”
That is how its official page on the web describes the Liberland, a three-square-mile patch of land that is the product of a border dispute.
According to this webpage, the nearest towns are Zmajevac (Croatia) and Bački Monoštor (Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, Serbia) and on some maps, this area is referred to as “Gornja Siga”.
Formed on 13 April 2015, this year’s anniversary will be the country’s first ever celebration on its home soil.
