Austria-Yugoslavia border for 40 years was very loose, except those few days. Maybe you have noticed my posts with commercials from Austria motivating Yugoslavs to come to Austria for shopping in 60s. .

AFAIK JNA did not have territorial claims against Austria. But Austrian army was obviously alerted.

I noticed a "Republika Slovenija" sign at one of the border crossings? Had they already declared their independence?

(Also, I thought Slovenia's break from Yugoslavia was relatively peaceful. Which would have somewhat protected Austria from any spill-over of fighting. Obviously, I was mistaken....)

I think it's a normal response from a neighboring country to send its troops on the border just in case. I assume Italy and Hungary did the same, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Of course, otherwise there would be no war.

It was relatively peaceful since the war lasted just 10 days.

I know it wasn't the Iron Curtain.

I'm just saying that 20 years ago there was the army protecting the border (because of the YU war), while today it's a peaceful location where everybody can cross without any restrictions.

So those pictures of Austria guarding its border are taken during those 10 days rather than the Croatia/Bosnia thing, I suppose. Which is what I think of when I think of the violent breakup of Yugoslavia.

I thought because you said they'd been "protecting the border so that nobody crossed it".

Of course, Austria doesn't border Croatia or Bosnia, just Slovenia, and by the time those two had war, it was already over here. Austria still had cannons directed at us for a decade though.

It was relatively peaceful comparing to Croatia and BiH.

according to my source it is from 1976, and this one from 1970.

That is not true. Up to 70s German, Russian and French were "main" foreign languages and in 80s English no1 and than German.

It was a big moment for Istria, because it represented big improvement in traffic safety and comfort, but it was also a political issue - connection of Istrian peninsula to the rest of Croatia and Yugoslavia...
