[ From the Media ]

In the Enzyklopädie des europäischen Ostens (EEO) run by the University of Klagenfurt ("ein Online-Nachschlagewerk zur Geschichte, Kultur und Politik") one now finds some concise but potentially helpful (and definitely more reliable than the wikipedia) urban histories. For Greece: Thessaloniki, Nauplio, Corfu, Athens; for Croatia: Zagreb, Rijeka, Split, Koprivnica, Karlovac; Montenegro: Ulcinj, Podgorica, Kotor; Kosovo: Prishtina, Prizren, Pec, Mitrovica, Djakovica; Bulgaria: Pleven, Plovdiv, Pliska, Sofia; Serbia: Belgrade, Novi Pazar, Nis, Novi Sad; Albania: Tirana, Berat, Durres, Elbasan, Korca, Kruja, Lezha, Vlora. I'm sure that I missed some, but for Bosnia we indeed only find Sarajevo.
