Train Stations from Vienna to Istanbul in Alphabetical Order

On the railway route between Vienna and Istanbul lies a place called Biser.

This Bulgarian village is one of the few places with images on Google Street View.
I like the name.

In most southern Slavic languages biser means pearl.
I do not know why this place got its name for it appears to be an exact opposite of a shiny pearl.

It may be similar to the robust shells in which the pearls grow.

The train route from Vienna to Istanbul could also be such a shell, and if this is the case I have already found my pearl (biser).
