Return to Europe

Balkan Express

Savagery and darkness, tribal feuds and vendettas, political chaos and the belief that might be right: numerous myths are interwoven with the Balkans and there is hardly another region of Europe which has to put up with such deeply entrenched clichés. To the prevailing negative image has recently come a folkloristic embellished picture of a people who would rather put themselves into an earthy celebratory mood with wild brass music than attend to any «sane» economic necessities.
