 After the end of Second World War – like in many other nations in the former East and West – mass tourism infrastructure represented a driving force for the modernization of society and economy. In the case of the newly established FR of Yugoslavia it was of even greater importance: Hotels and resorts therefore had been stages and meeting points to showcase the „success” of it’s unique third way politics of the non alignment movement and workers self management to both domestic and international guests.  Due to the war, the use as refuge camps, delayed privatization, legal insecurity related to ownership, and other reasons, the current status of these brilliant symbols of modernization range from decent to tasteless refurbishments and to surprisingly many vacant melancholic ruins.
