Yugoslavs in Serbia

Yugoslavs in Serbia (Serbian: Југословени у Србији, romanizedJugosloveni u Srbiji) refers to a community in Serbia that view themselves as Yugoslavs with no other ethnic self-identification. Additionally, there are also Serbs, Croats, Montenegrins and people of other ethnicities in Serbia who identify themselves as Yugoslavs. However, the latter group does not consider itself to be part of a Yugoslav nation, which is the way the first group identifies itself. People declaring themselves Yugoslavs are concentrated much more prominently in multicultural Vojvodina.
