Otherworldly Abandoned Soviet Monuments: Tjentište

Otherworldly and Abandoned Soviet Monuments

These sculptures and old buildings before the end of the Cold War era look futuristic and alien to western eyes. Some structures demonstrate the unequivocal military might of Russia, they have a real sense of enormity and scope. While others are scintillating, harshly modern, and located in beautiful forested landscapes, sitting comfortably in situ. These monuments are all a master-stroke of artistic and architectural achievement. Could these lost and forgotten objects ever be revived and resurrected, albeit for different purposes than they were originally intended? Only time will tell. As Russia claws back its former territory one chess piece at a time, the answer to that question will for now remain a mystery.

      1. Sorry guys I had a look and it seems that Forgotten NZ has now deleted her blog. I have now deleted that part of the post. I actually wrote this post ages and sorry that I overlooked that.

    1. I haven’t seen it no. Do you have the link? I have seen the TV miniseries which was very intense. It is still relatively fresh in people’s memories who have lived through it as it wasn’t that long ago, my partner was a a child when it happened and his mum was instructed to keep the children inside, very scary!

      1. Geez that’s a little too close for comfort. And it’s the mini series I was talking about. There’s a recent book as well which looks good
