Many conquering armies including the Romans, Byzantines, Goths, Greeks, Macedonians, Ottomans, Allies, Axis Nations have fought over this territory. Many positive things have come to the world from the Balkans including this eclectic list: Nikola Tesla, Mother Teresa, Parachutes, Cevapi (sausages) and the Cyrillic alphabet that is used by Russia among other nations.
