Serbian is a Slavic language and it is very similar to Russian. A lot of the Serbian population speaks Russian or at least understand it, so you will not have a problem communicating with Serbs. 

Interesting thing is that Serbia is one of the few countries where Latin and Cyrillic alphabets are used in parallel.
