Across the first border
Montenegro is a small republic (13,812km2), currently part of Serbia- Montenegro but striving for independence.
In a nutshell: Yugoslav federation was formed after WWII as a communist group of 6 republics (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzogovina, Serbia (including Vojvodina & Kosovo), Montenegro & Macedonia) dominated by Serbia led by Tito. Tito died in 1980 & communism ended in 1989 following the fall of the Berlin wall. Slobodan Milosevic gained power & fiercely protected the idea of a Greater Serbia breeding with it ethnic hatred. Gradually countries broke away from Serbian rule but not without a bitter 4 year war & atrocities on all sides. http://www.moreorless.au.com/killers/milosevic.html
