Adanz75 used a drone to film a sad reminder of the violence that engulfed Yugoslavia just a few years after Sarajevo hosted the 1984 Olympic Winter Games.  Less than a decade later, Yugoslavia had dissolved and much of the region had plunged into a bloody civil war whose epicenter was in what is now Bosnia Herzegovina.  While Bosnia and indeed all of its former compatriots have since recovered, the remains of the Olympic site are a sad reminder of this late 20th century tragedy.
