The main aim of the article is to present the specific nature of the Yugoslavian
and Post-Yugoslavian reality. In this paper there are shown the social and political
conditions of existing first in Yugoslavia and then — after the Breakup
of Yugoslavia — in the former Yugoslavian countries. Moreover, there are demonstrated
the most frequent myths and stereotypes about the Southern and
Western Balkans which are exemplified by literary and critical texts and first
of all Emir Kusturica’s film Underground.
