40. Bulgaria (Balkans) – Pitcher with Relief Decoration 19th
The Balkans (often referred as the Balkan Peninsula), is a geopolitical and cultural region of southeastern Europe that takes its name from the mountains that run through the centre of Bulgaria into Eastern Serbia. The Balkans, (“Balkan” comes from a Turkish word meaning “a chain of wooded mountains”, also the ancient Greek name for the Balkan Peninsula was the “Peninsula of Haemus” – Χερσόνησος του Αίμου in Greek), is a major crossroad between mainland Europe and the Near East. Its unique identity owes much to its violent history of the last 1000 years but also its very mountainous geography. (Source: Wikipedia The free encyclopedia)
