This paper starts with a brief overview of ethnological (and, later, anthropological) research into cities in Yugoslavia and its successor-states, which had definitely been established in the 1980s and 1990s in the period of late socialism and at the beginning of the so-called transition period. Novel social and political circumstances after 1989 undoubtedly influenced ethno-anthropological research of the city, and also determined the research of street names as political symbols, which emerged as a scholarly reaction to the widespread practices of massive renaming of various public places. The paper charts the results from this thematic area in the former Yugoslavia, and discusses further possibilities of this research field more than twenty years after the publication of the first study on this topic in the region.
