In the paper, we are dealing with social and national problems within First Yugoslavia (1918–1941). We choose to closely examine problems of nationalities and ethnic tension which caused politic and social instability during the entire period of the state’s existence. The King and governments tried to overcome huge differences among Yugoslav people imposing a centralized system which been replaced with dictatorship (1929–1935). From the beginning, First Yugoslavia dealt with numerous interior and exterior enemies. Over the years along with national tension they weaken the country, undermining its foundation from inside and outside until finally succeeded to abolish it in the Second World War
