Anyone born before the 21st century will most likely remember the country of Yugoslavia. Occupying a large proportion of Eastern Europe, it was once made up of Croatians, Serbians and Slovenians, and featured the countries we now know as Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Slovenia. A country ruled by Communists and wracked by ethnic and political conflicts throughout its existence, we often picture it as troubled and bleak. Yet Yugoslavia featured swathes of beautiful landscapes, and was rich in cultural history.
