Summary/Abstract: In this paper I will try to outline the context of transition opening in the two largest former Yugoslav republics, Serbia and Croatia. The break-up of ideological consensus in socialist Yugoslavia opened the door to creating new ideological concepts, which led to the disintegration of the state. In such circumstances, transition in Croatia and Serbia was opened. More prominent political and social crisis led to a gradual loss of legitimacy of the governing communist Party, which will enable a certain degree of liberalization and abated authoritarian regime. Apart from these internal factors, the important role in transition opening was played by external factors, collapsing socialist bloc and the break-up of the USSR.
