    Within the ex-YU among the common folks (like a sort of stereotype) the tallest people were usualy from Montenegro, next came Herzegovina and Dalmatian Zagora. Central Serbian and people from Šarplanina were also considered taller than the rest of people in ex-YU. Usual source of such stereotype was the military (JNA) since we had people from all republics in one place.

    A bit off-topic; in the same manner Slovenians were considered closed and greedy, Bosniaks stupid, Dalmatians and Montenegrin lazy, Central Croats wannabe aristocratic scheeming b****rds, Northern Croats did all by the book without thinking, Serbians honest but overprotective of their Serbian brothers; Kosovare nobody could understand but you could wake up dead one day for reasons you don`t know, Macedonian mistaken for being unable to read or write, Gypsy people were "the grey area nobody noticed".
    Yeah, whoever wants to get angry on this-go ahead ;D but some of this stereotypes still exist and are mostly used in jokes.

    This is very true, my family from my mothers side is from north-eastern Lika…and they're all like that, more so because they are very rich. (thought then again my grand-grand-grand-grand father was a Baron, a title that he earned during Austro-Hungary against Prussians so there is something to it :P ). My fathers part of the family is a mix of Slavonija, Zagorje and Zagreb and they're very modest.

    That sounds about right. It is really interesting that Greeks rank so tall on average.
    Then again, I was only on Greek islands and not mainland. One must remember they border South Slavic lands, so therefore no surprise that they are also probably on average quite tall, since majority of Greek population lives on mainland and not on islands.

    Yeah we must not forget that much of mainland Greece was Slavic and many Greek's do trace Slavic ancestry and then there are also Vlahi who were alway's famous for height. In Greek case those Vlahi are Aromanian's.

    Yeah i wonder if the great Montenegrin height secret is in their legendary laziness? ;D

    Or their unhuman super-dumbness. Sometimes legends speak of it going even farther than the "bosanska" glava epitath.. Not sure though! hehe

    And these are average Slavic female heights. It's from wikipedia. Unfortunately there is no info on Bosnia, Belarus, Macedonia, Russia, Serbia and Ukraine so feel free to complete the list if you can.

    Bulgaria 1.632 m
    Croatia 1.663 m
    Czech Republic 1.6722 m
    Poland 1.651 m
    Slovakia 1.656 m
    Slovenia (Ljubljana) 1.674 m

    I read that the tallest men are from Trebinje (Hercegovina). And I don't think Serbs are so short, I'm tall around 1,80 m and I'm the shortest in my class, of course there are shorter guys in other classes of my age, but everybody are around 1,75-1,90m tall (with exeption of 3 guys that are around 1,70)

    Well, you see it said Serbia has 10 million citizens, so Albanians are included and they are midgets, though I seen some Serbian midgets as well, but they are not as often

    Well I'm Slovak female and I'm 174, that's almost 10 cm's more than average. Though I have to say I'm the tallest girl of my classmates. Everyone, males and females, from father's side of family are tall :)

    I am 175 cm and am very surprised that the average heights of Europe are so short.
