The cultural and artistic heritage of Yugoslavia was as varied as its peoples. The ruins of the ancient city of Stobi in Yugoslav Macedonia provided evidence of a civilization dating back more than 2,000 years. The Roman amphitheater at Pula, in Croatia, is one of the world’s finest and most complete in the 20th century. The Roman emperor Diocletian (reigned 284-305) built a vast palace at Split that is incorporated into the city center, which consists mostly of medieval and Renaissance structures. The Saint Donatus Church in Zadar, dating to the 9th century, and the Venetian cathedrals at Trogir and Sibenik, all in Croatia, are examples of diverse Western architectural traditions.
Religious affiliation in Yugoslavia was closely linked with the politics of nationality; centuries-old animosities among the country's three main religions, Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, and Islam, remained a divisive factor in 1990. Forced conversions of Orthodox Serbs to Roman Catholicism by ultranationalist Croatian priests during World War II had made a lasting impression; more recently, Serbian official spokesmen often characterized Serbian conflicts with Kosovan nationalists as a struggle between Christianity and Islam. Religious tension existed even in the most prosperous regions: in the 1980s, local politicians delayed construction of an Orthodox church in Split and a mosque in Ljubljana, both predominantly Roman Catholic cities
