BREAKUP OF YUGOSLAVIA

This tour covers the history of Yugoslavia after World War II until its breakup in the early 1990s. Our well-educated tour guides will firstly provide you with an overview about the establishment of the Socialistic Federal Rapublic of Yugoslavia as well as its role during the Cold War, as President Tito successfully pursued a neutral “third way” between both the Warsaw and Nato pact.

In the second part of the tour, which explores three historical sites in Mostar and its surroundings, a special focus will be put on President Tito, who created its own form of socialism. Throughout the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, Yugoslavia experienced a period of  strong economic and social developement which was the result of severeal fundamental reforms under Tito`s strong political leadership.

The last part of the tour is dedicated to the Post-Tito period during the 1980s, when the slowdown of the economy and growing nationalism lead to political tensions across the country. Finally, the participants will have the opportunity to visit breathtaking venues of the Yugoslavian War, that in the end led to the desintegration of the country.  The historical monumentsas as well as verbal testimonies of our tour guides will provide you with fascinating insights into a country that ceased to exist over 20 years ago.
