These Old Russian Monuments Are So Creepy. What Were They Thinking?

Nowadays, it”s almost to believe that the Soviet Union used to be a thing. For a lot of people, the Cold War is not much more than a chapter in a history book. 20 years is a long time, and memories fade fast. Something that doesn”t fade so fast however, is architecture.

One thing that the Soviets were really good at was building were creepy-as-hell monuments. Those monuments are still around, but most of them are abandoned and decaying. Which probably only adds to the creepiness.
