37 monuments in 30 days, and what I learned along the way.
Friday 12 May 2017
Say what you like about Yugoslav communism, but those guys certainly had some terrific architecture.
When I went looking for WWII memorials in the Balkans last year, I set myself a side-mission of photographing all the brutalist Yugoslav buildings I could find. The following gallery of 62 images is the result of that quest (with a little bit of Bulgarian brutalism thrown in for good measure).
Right now, this collection is a work in progress. I have more photos than I need, and some are very similar to each other – I’m going to have to spend some more time whittling this down to a workable number, before it ends up as a story on the front page of the blog.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on a wonderful world of concrete.

The Exclusion Zone.
The Bohemian Blog is bigger than it looks. In fact, there’s a whole restricted area hidden away behind the public pages… a space where patrons of the site can access exclusive content, book previews and private image galleries. It’s called The Exclusion Zone. Just sponsor me the equivalent of a cup of coffee for each new article I post, and I’ll send you the password. Check out my page on Patreon to find out more about the perks of getting involved.
