Balkan in Dubai!!!
I received a lot of comments previous days on my Blog like: “This is nice but there are other nationalities here”, “Why are you so focused on Serbs”, “Why only Belgrade when there is Zagreb, Sarajevo, Budva…”. In order to fix this mess, my friend Darko and me come up with the idea to create something that will mix all from Balkan. Balkan in Dubai. Our goal is to collect members from all Ex-Yu countries (also Bulgarians, Greeks) and make them share their stories. This can be great opportunity to show the world that we can live together. If you would like to be part of this and form a first Balkan community in Dubai please send us an email with your short story here or send a message on the facebook page.
What is the Balkan?
The abstract term “The Balkans”, unlike the geographical borders of the Peninsula, defines political borders of the states comprising it. The term is used to describe areas beyond the Balkan Peninsula, or inverse in the case of the part of Italy in the Peninsula.
According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the Balkans comprise Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, while Greece and Turkey are often included (depending on the definition), and its total area is around 666,700 square km (257,400 square miles) and the population as 59,297,000 (est. 2002).
