BALKAN STATES

 

1910

 

This colorful 1910 map was reproduced from the New Reference Atlas of the World, published by C. S. Hammond in 1913.

 

 

The Balkan Peninsula is an area of southeastern Europe The region takes its name from the Balkan mountains which stretch from the east of Bulgaria to the east of Serbia. It is surrounded by water on three sides: the Adriatic Sea to the west, the Mediterranean Sea (including the Ionian and Aegean seas) and the Marmara Sea to the south and the Black Sea to the east. Its northern boundary is often given as the Danube, Sava and Kupa Rivers.

 

The region is predominantly inhabited by Bulgarians, Croats, Bosniaks, Gorani, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs, Slovenes, Romanians, Aromanians, Greeks, Albanians, Turks and other ethnic groups which present minorities in certain countries like the Romani and Ashkali.The largest religion on the Balkans is Orthodox Christianity, followed by Catholic Christianity and Islam.

The term "The Balkans" covers not only those countries which lie within the boundaries of the Balkan Peninsula, but may also include Slovenia and Romania.

 

Most of the Balkan nation-states emerged during the 19th and early 20th centuries as they gained independence either from the Ottoman Empire or the Austro-Hungarian empire. Greece in 1829, Serbia, Bulgaria and Montenegro in 1878, Romania in 1878, Albania in 1912, Croatia and Slovenia in 1918.

 

This map is a great resource for genealogical or historical research.   The 11x 14 inch (or slightly larger) map is printed  on 80 pound archival paper and protected by our  archival quality polypropylene  sleeve.    An insert on the back of the map provides brief information about the map and a brief history of the area represented on the map.  

 

 

 

This map is reprinted from an original map which we own.
