The Balkans takes its name from the Balkan Mountains, which run through the centre of Bulgaria into eastern Serbia and has a population of about 55 million people.
Balkan is an old Turkish word meaning "a chain of wooded mountains". However, due to the connotations of the term 'Balkan', many people prefer the term Southeastern Europe instead.
Interesting information, tnx for that !
