Just to mention that in Serbian encyclopedistics dictionary-like
definitions are quite good as encyclopedic articles. 10M of speakers
are not able to make high volume traditional encyclopedias.

Because of that, average article about anything on Serbian Wikipedia
is usually much more informative then equivalent in other
encyclopedias written in Serbian.

However, information in native language that some place is there or
that something is a mineral composed of that and that... or whatever
-- is very useful for users who spoke a language with not so big
number of speakers.
