I am interested in differences of former Yugoslav (and some other Balkanian) nations (Macedonians, Serbian, Montenegrins, Bosnians, Albanians, Croatians, Slovenians, Bulgarians).
In particularly, I am interested in:
1.Language they speaks (and it's group)
2.Religion of theirs (as far as I know, Bosnians and Albanians are muslims, Croats and Solovenians Catholics and others Orthodox. Do they have their own Orthodox churches in each of countries or are they all Russian orthodox or Serbian orthodox, etc.?)
3.Alphabets they use
As far as I know Serbians, Bosnians, Croats and Montenegrins uses the same language (Serbo-Croat), just Croatians writes in latin alphabet, while others writes in cyrillic. If this is true, what actually differs Serbians from Montenegrins? (they speak same language, has the same alphabet, believes in same religion, are of the same race, etc.). Also, ais it true that Bulgarians and Macedonians speaks the same language of Slavic branch? What alphabet do they use then? Also, about Bosnian nation: it seems they are also the same as Serbs except religion. Do they have any traditions? Also, do they (or Montenegrins) had any their own language in the past? If not, does that means that any Serbian or Montenegrin converted to Islam becomes Bosnian?
Thanks in advance for answers,
