During its brief history of 91 years it was on two occasions that the Yugoslav State came into being (1918 and 1945), after which it got disintegrated (1941 and from 1991 until today). This is why it is worth investigating the characteristic features of both stages of its disintegration. In our opinion the so‑called North‑South divide, which had always existed in the country’s economy, played a fundamental role in both periods of disintegration. This divide led to significant differences between the regions of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1918–1941), as well as the regions of the socialist Yugoslav state (1945–1991). Our paper aims to investigate how Tito’s Yugoslavia tried to deal with the problems of regional differences and it will also look at the outcomes of these attempts.
