What Imperial Ruins Look Like

April 27, 2011 8:23:18.644

It turns out that you don't need to visit Italy or Greece to see the fading remnants of former imperial glory - you can go to the Balkans and see a much more modern set of such relics - rotting Soviet era monuments - while the monuments are in what used to be Yugoslavia, and they were put up by Tito, they definitely have that "Soviet architecture" look/feel to them.  Looking at the photos makes me wonder - in 100 years, how many people who live in that area will have any idea what these monuments meant to the people who put them up?
