Forgotten the venue of the Olympic Winter Games 1984 in Sarajevo

Today, the Winter Olympics are held in the pearl of the Black Sea - the city of Sochi. In 1984, similar to the Winter Olympics were held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. Less than a decade after the end of the games in the country, the war broke out. The area was ceded to Bosnia. During the fighting, many Olympic facilities were either completely destroyed or forgotten, and came in deep decline.

Stadium Kosevo, which hosted the opening and closing ceremony of the games was still renovated in 1998.

However, the scars of war are still not disappeared, not all Olympic venues found a new life. Bobsleigh and toboggan slopes at Mount Trebevic and ski jump at Mount Igmam are abandoned and become a favorite place for competition in the work of graffiti artists over the years. At the end of last year, the photographer visited the abandoned Dabo Ruvik Olympic facilities in Sarajevo and took photos.
