Rural and sheep hearding romanian or proto-romanian (latin speaking) and slavic (proto-bulgarian and what would be called later southern slavs populations shared a large space comprising roughly the territories of today Romania, Bulgaria and former Yougoslavia and even the northern Greece). (I am not talking about political formations). They shared a lot in culture, habits, food, clothes, the reciprocal influences were huge and, of course, visible in the languages.
