The history of Yugoslavia is intimately linked to means of transport, as shown by the long maritime tradition of shipbuilding, the country's main industry, and the boom in the automobile industry represented in this pavilion at EXPO 86 by the Jugo 45 GV car.
With favourable conditions for sailing and other water sports, the Adriatic coast has become a major tourist destination.
The Danube is one of Europe's major waterways and the country has one of the busiest air traffic systems in Europe.
Yugoslavia has 23 million inhabitants divided into five ethnic groups. Four languages are spoken and two alphabets are commonly used.
