- from Europe
There is no universal agreement on the countries that make up Southeastern Europe. (To many, western Turkey is in this region.)
However, most will agree that Southeastern Europe is home to ruins of the Roman Empire and some of the oldest cities in Europe – and the world. Southeastern Europe once included Yugoslavia, a large country. However, political conflicts in the 1990s resulted in it being divided into many smaller countries, including Croatia, Serbia, and North Macedonia.
