Real Futuristic/Alien Monuments in Ex-Yugoslavia


WOW, check out these Monuments in ex-Yugoslavia. They resemble more of futuristic structures fabricated by alien species rather than by the (human) hands of artists and designers in the 1960's and '70s. Now that the Republic has since dissolved in the '90s, these incredible structures remain abandoned to age through time and be long forgotten... 
The structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (Tjentište, Kozara, Kadinjača), and where concentration camps stood (Jasenovac, Niš). The monuments were designed to convey the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. Sculptors include Dušan Džamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Živković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few. Bogdan Bogdanović and Gradimir Medaković were the architects.
