I wanted to add a poll of a kind. Please before answering do NOT check in the internet. There is a right answer, but I just wanted to know what people think. So here it goes ...

Where was the Cyrillic alphabet devised?

Options:

- Macedonia
- Russia
- Iran
- Albania
- Germany
- Bulgaria
- Romania
- Greece
- Kazachstan
- There is no such alphabet

Prefect Marty, yes, I've removed it to minimize somewhat the bias I'd introduce Aside from that, as far as I know it's used in quite a lot of countries, including Macedonia and Serbia (which is not on the list). Am I right to assume that even though St. Cyrillus and Methodius had visited the Czech lands (which I know for a fact), you've never used different from the Latin alphabet?

They introduced somewhat unique type of letters, actually the first font in the region, but it had disappeared because of frankish influence. Ruler of local kingdom in the region of western Slovakia (now) had invited them to teach christianity and written language, and spread it to the north later. Hope you found it interesting. I believe thereīs a lot of stuff in the internet on ancient languages.
