The main ranges are the Balkan Mountains, running from the Black Sea Coast in Bulgaria to its border with Serbia, the Rhodope Mountains in southern Bulgaria and northern Greece, the Dinaric Alps in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Montenegro, the šar massif which spreads from Albania to Macedonia, and the Pindus range, spanning from southern Albania into central Greece and the Albaian Alps.


The connection between the physical and human characteristics are different but similar. they are different because the physical tells the more of the features of the area and the human characteristics tell more about the people and place. they are similar because they do both talk about the place and give good information.People live on the coast of the Adriatic sea but not that many because their are mountains and that limits to get supplies to be feed and healthy and grow a good life. People live over on the coast of the Balkan Peninsula in Italy, Slovenia, Bosnian, and Greece. this was a very fun project to do and get more information about and learn more about i had a fun experience learing more about it and finding out new things i didn't know before.
