"Yugoslavia" means the "land of the South Slavs" in Serbo-Croatian. The Ottoman conquest in the Great War was imagined by intellectuals, especially in Croatia, and Yugoslavia and was first carried out by Serbs after 1918. It was resurrected by a multinational coalition of communists. This whole multi-ethnic relationship lived for decades in peace and stability. We will map the spatial distribution of nationalities and how it has been profoundly transformed since 1991 by the mass exodus of populations due to wars and the breakdown of the Yugoslav federation. As a cosmopolitan state in the 1970s, the revival of nationalism had taken place. Serbs, Croats, Bosnians and Albanians have lived for centuries and inextricably mingled in the region, and explained the violence of the fall of Yugoslavia. It was not a breakup, as the Soviet Union or Czechoslovakia, but has also been a particularly bloody shooting war, in Europe since the end of the Second World War. Since 1991, Yugoslavia had reduced shrinking and today only Serb nationalists still claimed the inheritance. This attempt to unite a single set of southern Slavs (who speak essentially the same language, namely the Serbo-Croatian) marked the twentieth century Europe. So how was Yugoslavia formed, who were the players involved and what caused its breakdown?
