Though largely neglected today, ex-Yugoslavia’s stunning mid- to late-20th century monuments were created by some of the country’s most celebrated sculptors and remain as much a testament to art as they do to memorialization.

Scattered across all of the present-day republics of the former-Yugoslavia are futuristic monuments now consigned to the past. These monuments memorialize human losses, mark the locations of key battles, and commemorate the revolutionary struggle for liberation, during WWII.

Alex Vorobev and friends traveled through the former Yugoslavia to capture these magnificent monuments with a DJI Phantom 3 drone, and the resulting images show them from truly unique and stunning perspectives.
