Following the global trends and accordingly to the energy conditions, wind turbines are being succesfully built in Serbia, which leads to an increase in the fund of knowledge in this field. In the paper, on the basis of general geotechnical conditions in Serbia, the most common types of wind turbine foundations will be presented. Problems of the load analysis of these structures will be presented in brief, and also the conceptual requirements in their design. Connection between the tower and the foundation will be briefly described as well. Despite the global aspiration to eneralize and industrialize this aspect of the construction of wind turbines, in specific cases remains a number of issues, regarding component materials, the application of standards and design codes, which are usually not adjusted to the design of wind turbine foundations.
