Why did Yugoslavia split?
Because of the death of Yugoslavia's greatest general, Josip (Yosip) Broz Tito, in 1980. Yugoslavia was a conglomeration of five nations, four of which share a common language (Serbo-Croatian), two of which are primarily Catholic nations (Croatia and Slovenia), two of which are Orthodox Christian nations (Serbia and Montenegro) and one of which is multi faith (Bosnia-Herzegovina, which is partially Muslim and partially Orthodox). So, it broke up because it was a hodgepodge of nations.

It does not exist any more. It is now divided itno Slovenia,Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and the FormerYugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).
Yugoslavia was all Albanian land. It was taken by the Russians in favor of the serbs.
The Kingdom of Yugoslavia was the former alliance of six BalkanStates: Croatia-Herzegovina, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republicof Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, Serbia and S…lovenia. The WWIIinvasion by Germany, the post war occupation by the USSR, internalconflict and sectarian violence resulted in the total dissolutionof the country into its former states and the new autonomousprovinces of Vojvodina, Kosovo and Metohija. The Balkans has longbeen seen as a powder keg in European stability. This answer is wrong at several points: 1. Kingdom of Yugoslavia was not an alliance of states, it was acentralized country, ruled by a king in Belgrade. Before 1918 whatare today Slovenia and Croatia were a part of Austro-Hungarianempire, not independent states. 2. In World War II Yugoslavia was divided by Germany, Italy,Hungary and I believe (not sure) Bulgaria, while Croatia was anindependent state, under strong German influence. 3. Yugoslavia was not occupied by the USSR after the war. Themajority of the country was liberated by local partisans, led byJosip Broz - Tito. It was autonomous under the rule of Tito'scommunist regime. In 1948 Tito had a famous fall-out with Stalinand Yugoslavia became an "outlaw" of the communist states, having alot more links with the west as the other communist countries. Itwas never a member of the Warsaw pact, instead Tito created anorganisation of "non-aligned states", mostly third world countriesthat refused to take either side in the cold war. 4. Today Yugoslavia is separated into 6 countries, Slovenia,Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and the FormerYugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

Yugoslavia split into 6 different countries (some might say 7 if Kosovo is included) - Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia.\n. \nHowever by 2003 only …Serbia and Montenegro remained part of Yugoslavia so technically it did 'split into two' when the countries both became independent.\n. \nThe reasons for all this are very long and include different people's wish for self-determination, the end of the Socialist government, the changes that affected other countries in central Europe and Russia, influences of the USA and other countries and some violent clampdowns by the authorities against those wanting independence.
It split because.... It split because...
Yugoslavia split into 6 countries due to the differnet ethnicities in the area that had very few feelings of unity (hostilities in fact stemming from centuries of conflict). … . Furthermore Yugoslavia is an artificial construct, its borders were set due to ethnicity or natural boundries but rather by foreign politicians so it was inheritly unstable from the start. 177
