The high temperature in December, the lack of wind, heavy traffic and using solid fuel for heating all led to excessive air pollution in Serbia and the region.
Niš is still the most polluted city in Serbia this morning with an index of 217, while, in the region, the most alarming situation is in Nikšić and Pljevlja.
