These sculptures and old buildings before the end of the Cold War era look futuristic and strange. Some structures demonstrate the military might of Russia. While others are scintillating, harshly modern, and located in beautiful forested landscapes. These monuments are artistic and architectural wonders. Could these lost and forgotten objects ever be revived and resurrected, albeit for different purposes than they were originally intended? Only time will tell. In the meantime these monoliths are fascinating to behold and I would love to visit them in person some day.

Hmm, what happened to that Forgotten NZ site?
Yeah looks to be deleted…
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.
Sorry Mike I have deleted that part now, it seems she has deleted her blog
Did you see that doco on Chernobyl? Only saw bits myself but looked fascinating…
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!

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
