Summary/Abstract: Short chronicles are widespread in Balkan literature from the 16th and 17th centuries. Today we know of six Bulgarian works from this genre created on the basis of Serbian writings. There are interesting similarities when they are compared with some Late-Byzantine and Wallach-Moldavian short chronicles. There is no direct dependence between the texts, but the indirect connection is evident. In them, the same process and events which influence the history of the whole Balkan Peninsula are reflected. Identical productive models circulate in the literature of the Balkan peoples, regardless of the degree of development of genres.
