Yugoslavia (Jugoslavija in the Latin alphabet, Југославија in Cyrillic; English: "Land of the South Slavs") describes three political entities that existed one at a time on the Balkan Peninsula in Europe, during most of the 20th century.


The Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1 December 1918–April 17, 1941), also known as the First Yugoslavia, was a monarchy formed as the "Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes" after World War I and re-named on 6 January 1929 by Alexander I of Yugoslavia. It was invaded on 6 April 1941 by the Axis powers and capitulated eleven days later.


The Second Yugoslavia (29 November 1943-25 June 1991), a socialist successor state to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, existed under various names, including the "Democratic Federation of Yugoslavia (DFY)" (1943), the "Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia (FPRY)" (1946), and the "Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY)" (1963). СОЦИЈАЛИСТИЧКА ФЕДЕРАТИВНА РЕПУБЛИКА ЈУГОСЛАВИЈА,  SOCIJALISTIČKA FEDERATIVNA REPUBLIKA JUGOSLAVIJA. It disintegrated in the Yugoslav Wars, which followed the secession of most of the constituent elements of SFRY.



The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) (April 27, 1992–February 4, 2003), was a federation on the territory of the two remaining republics of Serbia (including the autonomous provinces of Vojvodina and Kosovo and Metohija) and Montenegro. The Union of Serbia and Montenegro was formed on February 4, 2003 and officially abolished the name "Yugoslavia." On June 3 and June 5, 2006, Montenegro and Serbia respectively declared their independence, thereby ending the last remnants of the former Yugoslav federation.

Yugoslav.. Yugoslavs (Bosniak, Macedonian, Serbian Cyrillic: Југословени; Latinic: Jugosloveni; Croatian: Jugoslaveni, Slovenian: Jugoslovani) was an ethnic designation used by some people in former Yugoslavia, which continues to be used in some of its successor countries.


In socialist Yugoslavia, 1943-1991, official designation for those who wanted to declared themselves that way was with quotation marks, "Yugoslavs" (introduced in census 1971). Quotation marks were added to distinguish the ethnicity from statehood (legal statuses such as citizenship), which was written without quotation marks.


A few years before the dissolution of Yugoslavia, most of those who declared themselves "Yugoslavs" reverted to or adopted the more local nationalities such as "Muslims" (in the sense of nationality), Croats, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs, Slovenes as well as those which were played down including Janjevs, Bunjevci and Šokci etc) but the designation continues to be used by some.



It was estimated, according to comparison of census numbers, that "Yugoslavs" came mostly from constitutional Slavic peoples.

In the 2002 census, 49,881 inhabitants of the Serbian province Vojvodina declared themselves as "Yugoslav" (at a time when Serbia was part of the country still called FR Yugoslavia).


One use of the term "Yugoslavs" is for people who believe that Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks, Slovenes, Macedonians, and Montenegrins are one and the same people who have cultural differences (mainly religious) because of empires which ruled their tribes in the past. For instance, if one wished to see the impact of Germanic and Hungarian influences on the Yugoslavs they would look at the (Catholic) Croatian and Slovenian region, the (Musliм) Bosnian region under the Ottoman influence, and the (Orthodox) Serbian region under the Russian and, in the middle ages, Greek influence.


Those who were raised in the Yugoslav spirit embrace the three different nationalities are one ethnicity who speak one language, and see this as the reason to unite in a similar way that Italy was unified in 1861.

Since the late 18th century, when traditional European ethnic affiliations started to mature into modern ethnic identities, there have been numerous attempts to define a common South Slavic ethnic identity.


When the term Yugoslav was first introduced, it was meant to unite a common people (the Serbs, Croats, and Bosniaks) the same way the Prussians united with Bavaria and other regions of Germany. In the book A Short History of the Yugoslav Peoples by Fred Singleton, it states that Serbs, Croats, and Bosniaks are one and the same people. "Once the South Slavs had settled in the Balkans they also became separated from each other, partly because of geographical obstacles, and partly because of the historical circumstances of foreign occupations."
