Vitoša

Post by I'm the 1 on Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:43 am

Vitoša (Bulgarian: Витоша = Vitoša) is a mountain massif, on the outskirts of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria.

Bistriško Branište (Bulgarian: Бистришко бранище) is a nature reserve on Vitoša Mountain.

S. marmoreum and S. ciliosum are native to Vitoša region.

Sometimes you will see habitat names written like:

- Vitosha

- Bistrishko Branishte

Bulgarian language has (like Slovene, Croatian, Serbian and Mecedonian languages do!) letter "Š", that is pronounced like "SH" in English. This (Vitosha & Bistrishko Branishte) are ON MY OPINION not correct geographical names - they should be written as Vitosa and Bistrisko Braniste if no letter "Š" is beeing used.
