Episode details

In this edition of the Podcast, I’ll be focussing on Spomenik. Spomenik are large monuments from the former Yugoslavia, and you see them across the whole of the Western Balkans and in particular here in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Normally, they're massive structures built out of concrete, and I think the architectural design is called “Brutalism” but they are very, very impressive.
