Summary/Abstract: This study aims at re-assessing an important moment in the history of the Balkan states, namely the Bucharest Peace Conference (1913), which ended the Second Balkan War. Without any doubt, the above mentioned event generated significant frontier changes in the Balkans, which reshaped the entire map of the region. With the war being over, the negociations in Bucharest were, first of all, an expression of the new strategic situation on the war fronts, in which Bulgaria was defeated, and its diplomats were trying to limit the territorial losses. Despite all the diplomatic efforts untertaken by Sofia, at the end of the conference Bulgaria was obviously the main loser, while the other Balkan statal entities have all (Serbia, Greece and Romania) achieved significant territorial gains, especially Serbia. Romania itself became an important power in the area, being perceived as a significant political player not only by the Balkan states, but also by the Great Powers.
