Summary/Abstract: The years of Ottoman rule served to isolate the Balkan region from the blossoming Renaissance period in Europe, and consequently the culture of this area was deeply affected by Turkish influences. The study gives a survey of the cultural contacts between Bulgarians and Serbs during the National Revival. Among the Slavs the period of the National Revival and the epoch of the Enlightenment is appearing tardily compared to other European countries. Among the Southern Slavs it starts in the 18th century. Because of its lateness the process is faster (while in Western Europe the transition from the Middle Ages to Modernity lasted app. 300 to 400 years, the same process among the Southern Slavs takes 100 years). The Bulgarian and Serbian Renaissance is tightly connected with the war of independence and the revolution, the core motivation being national indepedence and not individual freedom.
