Zagreb, Croatia -- Croatia and nearby Slovenia voted overwhelmingly to overthrow their Communist yokes in the early 1990s -- causing a civil war sparked by the Serb-dominated Yugoslav Army.

Serb-sparse Slovenia got off relatively easy, but Croatia had thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of refugees.
