Mystic monuments from the former Yugoslavia

Mystic Monuments from the former Yugoslavia – Today you will see the long lost monuments that can be found in countries of the former Yugoslavia. Yugoslav state was formed after second world war which was the bloodiest war that human kind has witnessed yet. Just because of that destruction and human tragedy most of these monuments were built across whole Yugoslavia, to remember people what war has brought to these lands. No matter the politics and the fact that communist were building these monuments, it’s the message they send to future generation to not raise the weapons on each other again…and indeed that is why they look futuristic, because they are standing there to talk to us in future about what our past has looked like. These trully remarkable, abandoned and alien-like structures stand still against the time and due to a photographer Jan Kempenaers we bring you some of them. Photos via Jan Kempenaers
