Our team

YOU

Yugoblok is…YOU. A blok is only as alive and lively as the people in it.

Because “no one achieves anything alone.”

The Founder

My name is Peter Korchnak and I’m a yugophile. I was born in a country that no longer exists (Czechoslovakia) and explore the memory of another (Yugoslavia). Yugoblok grew out of my podcast Remembering Yugoslavia (2020–).
