A journey through the Balkans is a journey through Europe’s past and its future. Europe is discovering its fascination for the Balkans. After years of bloody conflict, this region has become again a region of hope. Romania and Bulgaria have joined the European Union. There is peace. A new generation desires change. The magic word that echoes from Tirana to Belgrade, from Sarajevo to Istanbul is “Europeanisation”.
“These are documentaries all citizens of the European Union should have the opportunity to see” – Giuliano Amato, former Prime Minister of Italy
“A compelling documentary series about the Balkans and Turkey, capturing the essence of a fast-changing region central to Europe’s future” – Olli Rehn, European Commissioner for Enlargement (November 2008)
