    So can anybody tell me about the country of yugoslavia? so how was it before it collapsed as a country? So is the country average, good, or bad when it was around before the collapse of the 90's?

    Rating countries as "average, good or bad" on an non-existing meter is kinda dumb.

    Yeah. I mean we could go by lots of figure but shit is relative.

    Former Yugoslovian republics could in the right circumstances be a great place to live actually.

    Learn the geography and social customs.

    They could be great, but mostly aren't.

    They are also very jealous sometimes.

    Don't shit on anyone's local ties and you should be fine seriously. I wouldn't go to Serbia myself because I am not that type of person. I would fit in better in Bosina, Croatia, or Slovenia.


    ANYWAYS besides being some dumb American obviously we have lots of people on here I'm sure you know that are from former Yugoslavian countries.

    A lot of people go to places like Croatia and Slovenia on vacation, I see their pics on Instagram etc., looks great. My uncle visited Croatia, he came back and said it was "a clean place". :) Not sure what he was expecting, shit smeared on the walls or something. Bodies in the street from the war.

    In Slovenia you can go see the house Melania lived in as a small child before she became a lesbian porn actor and a mail order bride.

    Ex-Yugoslavia is generally great for tourists.

    You guys have a lot of great nature there too. Used to chat with a Slovenian guy who was like a mountain guide for tourists. Seemed he had plenty of business. Mountains, the Mediterranean and plenty of interesting history, hot chicks, what's not to like.

    As Yugoslavia they had their dear leader Tito for a long time. They want him back.

    I can assure You that Slovenians don't miss Tito at all. A decade and half ago Me and My boss did buisness with Slovenians. Discusions often swayed to history and politics and few times Lady whoom we talked to directly with, mentioned that during the '90 balkan conflict, Slovenia was the first one that proclaimed independency and Tito mooved his forces in there, and literally went on a killing spree shooting everything that was mooving in sight. The Slovenians themselves had no army of their own yet, so they forked out $$ and hiered foreign mercenaries to defend them. A great story for Jagged Alliance 3 campain perhaps, however a preety sorrow sight if you asked Me...

    Yugoslavia (a union of southern Slavs) was formed sometime after WWII, and a the end of it's existance was ruled with iron hand by Yosif Tito before it collapsed. Like every union that's not bound by religion, culture, and comon interests it was doomed to colapse. Local tensions were always there. Shit started to fly when Serbians went out on the streets openly started mass executing Bosniacks.

    On a side note:
    Places where gunfire exchange with United Nation's forces took place are generally a bad place to visit, since balkan war was a field test for depleated uranium bullets ( mainly 7,62 Nato and bigger caliber) for the UN forces. If by accident You have a geiger counter with you when you visit such a place and hover it over a wall of old buildings it may happen that geiger counter will find bullets still stuck in the walls, since most of the time the bullets were not taken out but the bullet holes were covered with cement during renovation post war. Although massive rise in Leukemia sickness amongst local population was not a major issue (As initially it is a short term efect of radiation) although the long term effect of radiation of rise in cancer sickness amongst local population did become a major issue. Athough It's not certain whether it was DU waste or fallout from chernobyl few years earlier that poisoned most of europe.

    After balkan war use of DU bullets in caliber bellow 20mm (with the possible exception of.50 BMG) were forbidden by international law, Due to high pollution with radiation waste of the warzone.

    Yea I know it was sketchy. And the whole UN soldiers thing, didn't protect those civilians at Srebrenica, forever a deep shame for them.

    But understandable given the situation as if they protected the Civilians it would have been pretty much their death sentence. A few 100 people without any heavy weapons are going to fight of a whole army at their door. Yeah.

    I sometimes wish they would have fought. And I say that as a Serbian. It was a terrible situation. But I can understand any UNO soldier who was sitting there in his barracks and hoping that it would simply pass so they could return home and forge that it ever happend. Many innocent people died horribly in this fucked up war by the hands of Serbians.

    With saying this, Yugoslavia was kinda Average. Yes I still remember it. A little.
