Abstract
Passenger traffic between Serbia and Bulgaria operates through six border crossing points, one of which is rail. Not so long ago, there were more border crossing points between the two countries, fluctuations of the local population were far greater, but the depopulation of the border area between Serbia and Bulgaria over time resulted in the need to close these crossing points. Dynamic political events on the Balkan Peninsula during the 20th and 21st century have made the border crossing points to be separation points rather than meeting points of the two nations. Besides depopulation, the border area is characterized by extreme economic underdevelopment. The border area of Southeast Serbia in contemporary development plans is commonly recognized as an area suitable for tourism development, where the transit position plays one of the most important roles.
