For the most part here in Montenegro, signs, books, etc are printed (in Serbian) using Latin letters. However, in other Balkan countries (with the exception of Albania) Cyrillic letters are more common. I admit that I (Laura) was resistant to learning a whole new alphabet in addition to a new language. I conveniently forgot that I was willing to learn two different sets of runes so I could read the front pages of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I am finally coming around and am trying to learn the Cyrillic as well. It's tricky to have to translate the letters and then the word.
The brothers Kiril and Metodij, immortalized here in bronze were the inventors of the Cyrillic alphabet. Here are our names in Cyrillic: Лаура and Стефан. Can you guess which one is which? The really tricky thing is that several Latin letters such as B, C, H and P represent a totally different letter in Cyrillic, such as V, S, N and R.
