Turks in Serbia, also known as Serbian Turks are people of Turkish ancestry who have been present in Serbia since the Ottoman period. The Turkish minority has traditionally lived in the urban areas of Serbia, however in 1830, when Serbia was granted an autonomous region, many Turks emigrated as "muhacirs" (refugees) to Turkey and by 1862 almost all the remaining Turks left Serbia, including 3,000 from Belgrade.[3] According to the 2011 census only 647 people declared themselves as Turks, though this does not include the Turkish minority in Kosovo.[4]
