Why No One Claims a Specific Piece of Land Between Croatia and Serbia

It’s hard to believe that there’s ANY unclaimed land left on the planet, but you learn something new every day. A piece of land along the Danube River between Croatia and Serbia is still unclaimed to this day due to a border dispute between the two countries.

According to the video made by RealLifeLore,

“From Serbia’s standpoint, the border is the Danube river as it is today and the unclaimed piece of land to the west of the river therefore is rightfully a part of Croatia.

But Croatia doesn’t claim it because if they ever did it would mean that they recognize the Danube river as it exists today as the border between them just like Serbia and it would mean forfeiting all of their much more valuable claims to the more plentiful land over to the east of the river.”

There have been prior claims to the land but neither Serbia or Croatia will allow a new country to be formed there. So for now, it stands unclaimed.
