Spomenik: Yugoslavian monuments

Spomenik are futuristic monuments commisioned in the former Yugoslavia in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place and to celebrate the power of Communism.  Since communism and Yugoslavia itself fell apart in the early 1990s with the fall of the Republic these structures are now largely abondoned and forgotten.  Once tourist attractions they now a crumbling homage to both the past and future.
