Abstract: New world order and rearrangement of Europe transform the position of Balkan region
instead as the crossroad between East and West, it is more often included into the area of Western influence. In
European relations, developed core is gradually spreading toward periphery removing the traditional Balkan
culture. The europeisation of Balkans and spreading of Western European civilizations circle gives the arguments
that the term Balkans should be replaced with the term Southeastern Europe. The europeisation or balkanization is
not geopolitical but civilization choice in front of all Balkan nations.
Key words: Balkans, Southeastern Europe, cultural geography, geopolitics.

Summary
BALKANS AS THE CULTURAL SUBCONTINENT OF EUROPE
Cultural region of Balkans as the region of mixed remains of European and non European civilizations
reveals basically the culture of crossroad which had the great influence to Balkan geopolitical horizons, to the
worlds image of Balkan people, who was often interpreted in the wrong way by the neighboring nations and
great powers. Balkans, according to its physical-geographical and cultural-geographical characteristics, is not
Asian, European or some other mixed Eurasian sphere, but the cultural European region with authentic cultural,
economic and political forces. Those forces are researched in this article with the conclusion that the own forces
and openness for cooperation with neighboring focuses of cultural, economic and political power are factors of
progress of Balkan nations and states.
