Details

The country of Yugoslavia (lit. "South Slavia") merged the vast region to which most South Slavic nations are autochthonous (the key exception being Bulgaria and the Bulgarians) into a single state. The concept of Yugoslavia, as a single state for all South Slavic peoples, emerged in the late 17th century and gained prominence through the Illyrian movement of the 19th century. The name was created by the combination of the Slavic words jug (south) and sloveni (Slavs).
