Abandoned Olympic stadiums and infrastructure

In 1984, the Winter Olympics were held in Sarajevo (Yugoslavia at the time). Now there is no such country, and many Olympic facilities are in a deplorable state. One of the bobsleigh tracks has been mastered by cyclists, who organize races here against the backdrop of bright graffiti covering the concrete walls. The rest are simply crumbling and overgrown with moss. And in one of the parts of the former Olympic complex, a cemetery appeared at all.
