First stop in #Ulaanbaatar was the #Zaisan #Memorial 🇲🇳 A circular concrete #mural sat on top of the hill overlooking the city depicts scenes of the relationship between the #sovietunion and #mongolia 🇲🇳
Two days hanging out in Warsaw, 🇵🇱 with the interesting mixed vibe of European and Soviet. 😍 #summer2018 #travelingalone #vacation #vacationmode #✈️ #Warsaw #Warszawa #Poland🇵🇱 #Polska🇵🇱 #diefliegendertomate🍅 #latomatevoyageuse🍅✈️ #communistarchitecture
Classic, well preserved communist-era architecture in central Timisoara -- the former Modex "House of Fashion" store. The building now hosts various retail and other businesses. Many of the former communist structures are downright ugly but there is something kind of cool about this one, looking especially radiant today under a cloudless (and sweltering) sky.  #timisoara #romania #communistarchitecture #everydayeasterneurope #modextimisoara #architecture #casademode
Beauty or monstrosity? I think I found today's winner with KFC/Planet Pizza [oh the irony]  #kfcminsk #minsk #belarus #belarustravel #sovietarchitecture #communistarchitecture #gettingmygeekon
Contenders for the best Soviet building:
1. Moscow Cinema, 2. Hotel Belarus, 3. Central apartments, 4. Opera House, 5. Apartments, 6. Palace of the Republic #Minsk #belarus #belarustravel #sovietarchitecture #communistarchitecture #inmyelement

1st stop - Buzhludzha monument - Há muito que queria visitar este gigante comunista. No alto dos seus 1500 m pode ser visto a várias dezenas de km de distância. Esta arquitetura austera e forte clearly got my eye. #68

I hear this iconic LOT building in #gdansk is soon to be demolished from the landscape of my childhood.  Not the prettiest, but symbolic to those who still appreciate #communistarchitecture and who search for a slice of past gone by #childhoodmemories  #communistbuildings #lotpolishairlines #danzig #flight #lot #polskielinielotnicze

I didn't know that Riga would have a Stalin's tooth as well.

Designed by Georgi Stoilov, the Arc of Liberty is located at the highest point (1550m) of the Troyan-Karnare pass in the Balkan Mountain. The monument is dedicated to the Bulgarian-Russian brotherhood of arms, the "anti-fascist resistance" & the unity of the two periods in history. The eternal flame went out & was never relit. 🇧🇬 #bulgaria #beklemetopass #balkans #easterneurope #communistarchitecture #history #monument #explore #concrete #arkitektour #communist #darktourism #travel #travelgram #wanderlust #explore #traveladdict #travelmag #instatravel #travelphotography #georgistoilov #brutalism #iconic

Abandoned communist-built "Hotel Oltenia"
Once part of a complex built for the Party  members, all does now is block the sun for the beachgoers...

New York has Macy’s, London has Harrod’s, but Minsk has...GUM! Visitors to Minsk expecting a heavenly shopping experience in a big department store, may well be directed to GUM, the official government department store. You are unlikely to find familiar labels in this 1950’s example of Stalinist neo classical architecture. The shopaholic is in no danger of overspending on the credit card here, in this time capsule from the Cold War era. Indeed, the diligent staff reflect the ideals of the communist state at the time, as they are all dressed in a militaristic drab green uniform, appearing like grown up Girl Scouts, but with no tent or camp to supervise. Things are beginning to change in Belarus and the young show hunger for the brands and luxuries that they may see if visiting other European capitals. While Minsk may not be a shopper’s paradise, there are rewards here for the visitor, such as excellent and good value food and drink, probably the cleanest streets in the World and also perhaps the safest...as you wouldn’t want to be breaking the law here! #street #streets #streetstory #streetstorytelling #streetphotos #streetphotography #streetphotographer #streetphotographers #departmentstore #departmentstores #communistarchitecture #stalinistarchitecture #store #storedesign #travelpics #travelphoto #travelphotostory #travelphotography #travelphotographer #igerphoto #igerstreet #iger #sonyphotography #sonyphotographer #sonyphotographers

Fortidens kommunisme møder nutidens kapitalisme: Jugoslavisk minde-sten/stjerne for faldne partizanere på en bakketop over #svetistefan, som man kan ane i baggrunden nederst til venstre. Sveti Stefan er i en lille ø, der er omdannet til ét stort privat hotel for de stenrige. #beckham-familien var der fx for et par uger siden. #spomenik @spomenikdatabase @spomeniky #communistarchitecture #communism #partizans #yugoslavia #jugoslavija #monument #yugonostalgia

NYC? Nope, Stalin’s gift to the Polish people, the PKiN (Sciences & Culture Palace) is now a feature of Warsaw!

Why are abandoned places so fascinating? This beautiful book combines two things that really interest me; abandoned buildings and the architecture of the former Soviet Union.
