Yugoslavian Monuments Straight Out of a Sci-Fi Movie

They may look like something out of a Lovecraft novel, but these concrete sculptures in (what used to be) Yugoslavia have greater significance than just looking cool.

They were commissioned in the ’60s and ’70s by president Josip Broz Tito to commemorate various places where WWII battles took places, or sites where concentration camps stood.

But once the socialist republic dissolved, the statues stopped being cared for, and here they sit the degraded relics of decades past, waiting for aliens to find them and think we had really weird taste in architecture.

Check out the rest of them in the gallery below:
