The Supreme Court of Serbia (Serbian: Врховни суд Србије) is the highest court in the Republic of Serbia, located in Belgrade. It was established in 1846 by decree of HRM Aleksandar Karađorđević.

In the last 160 years since it was established, the Court has asserted its authority within judiciary in Serbia and beyond, all based on a qualitative and dedicated work of its judges and other employees. Generations of judges changed but their unbiased, fair and dedicated work in keeping the tradition of equity and independence of judiciary whereby strengthening the honor of the profession as well as the court continued.
