Starting from the legal position of the National Bank of Serbia, the paper analyzes the objectives entrusted to this institution by domestic legislation. In line with the dominant monetary paradigm, the main goal of the central bank of Serbia is price stability. After the global financial crisis, financial stability is increasingly mentioned as the objective that central banks implement. This also applies to the central bank in Serbia (National Bank of Serbia), which has a clear mandate to take account of financial stability, in addition to monetary stability. Finally, as an important subject of economic policy, the National Bank of Serbia, by exercising the entrusted functions also affects the achievement of other economic policy objectives. It should be kept in mind that domestic legislation precisely determines the hierarchy of the objectives of the central bank, considering that it explicitly stipulates that the National Bank of Serbia primarily takes care of monetary and financial stability, and only then it provide support for general economic policy, provided that it does not jeopardize the exercise of the basic objectives.
