MDM – A taste of Communist architecture

Once upon a time there was Plac Konstitucij. Don’t get me wrong, it is still there, but in the ’50s a couple of additions were made. The small streets were hidden and in the middle of the square socio-realist buildings were placed that in the last decade have been added to the list of the historical buildings of the city. 

Personally, I find them fascinating, especially because they are decorated with gigantic sculptures that define what communism was about. 

The inhabitants of the city will not tell you to have a look at them or read about their history because they find them unattractive. Still, I think it is a piece of history. 

Surprising is the cocktail of different architecture that we can find around the square, a couple of blocks further there is a “French street” that was supposed to imitate Paris. 

Sit around (there are several spots already spotted) and contemplate how history is there and we almost forgot.
