agree  Dylan Edwards: The Bulgarian and Greek-Turkish lengths of this river are both called Maritsa in my Oxford-Hammond Concise Atlas./Quite right. In this atlas, the river is marked 'Maritsa' both inside and outside Bulgaria, but the Oxf.Dict. of the World gives 'Meriç' too.

  -> You have in mind the name of Maritsa in GR and TR, don't you? The left bank is called Meric, and the right - Evros...

agree  Peter Skipp: The stress is on the second vowel
