The South Slavs

The South Slavs

The South Slavs settled in the regions around the Balkan Peninsula. Because of their proximity to the Byzantine Empire, this group of Slavs was heavily influenced by the Byzantines, as well as by Western Europe.

 

The descendants of the South Slavs live in the present day nations of Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, and Bosnia. Their faith is influenced by both Eastern Orthodox as well as Roman Catholic. Many of the Bosnians are Muslim.
