Yugo-nostalgia

nostalgia for Yugoslavia

Yugo-nostalgia is a little-studied psychological and cultural phenomenon occurring among citizens of the former Yugoslav republics: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia. While its anthropological and sociological aspects have not been clearly recognized, the term, and the corresponding epithet "Yugo-nostalgic", is commonly used by the people in the region in two distinct ways: as a positive personal descriptive, and as a derogatory label.

QuotesEdit

  • I am puzzled by this nostalgia. People say it was not so bad, that socialism was more human. But everyone was egalitarian in the former Yugoslavia because everyone was poor. Yugoslavia was a dictatorship.
