Administrative cities

Cities in administrative sense are defined by the Law on Territorial Organization. They enjoy a special status of autonomy and self-government, as they have their own civic parliaments and executive branches, as well as mayors elected through popular vote, elected by their citizens in local elections. The capital Belgrade is the only city on the level of a district. All other cities are on the municipality level and are part of a district.[2]

As of 2008, the following cities have official administrative city rights:[2]

In addition, Priština is an administrative city according to the Law, but Serbia does not exercise its laws on Kosovo.

Urban settlements

20 largest urban settlements in Serbia (without Kosovo)

The 2011 census in Serbia was held only on the territories of Central Serbia and Vojvodina, and not in Kosovo. According to the statistic criteria, the following settlements are classified as "urban" (i.e. cities and towns), as opposed to "rural" (villages). These criteria are not limited to settlement size, but also include the percentage of residents engaged in agriculture, population density etc. Thus, not all towns in statistical sense are greater than villages, and they are not always municipality centers.

  1. ^ a b These are 2002 census results. At the beginning of September 2011, the Assembly of Albanian Deputies from Preševo, Bujanovac and Medveđa invited the Albanians to boycott the Census, which affected the coverage in the municipalities of Preševo and Bujanovac, and partly in the municipality Medveđa.
