Abandoned, war-damaged buildings in Mostar. They were on the edge of a park and I guess once they were abandoned they were just “reclaimed” by the shrubbery.
The creepy thing is that right next door are completely restored houses that people are currently living in. This is just a little pocket of war damage that was never repaired, surrounded by totally normal suburbs.
I originally intended to explore these houses a bit more, since they still contained rotting furniture and whatever the former occupants left behind, but I was still pretty shaken from wandering around in a snipers’ nest earlier that same day - then I was startled in one of the houses by a LARGE snake darting out from under the furniture, so… I nope’d right out of there and left this one alone.
