Worst historical monuments in your country


Here I start with several Balkan examples:

1/ Romanian idea of the Roman emperor Trajan;

2, 3, 4/ Famous Macedonian naked Prometheus, who was covered with some underwear because of the public reaction of the conservative Macedonians;

5/ The monument "1300 years Bulgaria", build in 1981 by the Communists and given the name "Six wings f- five d.cks" by the people..

6/ and others - Another monument, showing some of the ancient Bulgarian rulers..

Personally I find all the authors to be alcoholics...

Its not even part of "my" country's history. But as I look at this picture, I find myself begging it not to be real.

Nor mine, but it had to come up here - somehow. It's the worst thing, ever. Narrowly tops smallpox

Congratulations! You sir have made me laugh for the first time today.
Also that monument of Traian in the first post is an insult to the man.

The monument of Krum near Targovishte is also not a masterpiece.

Whenever I used to pass by the Katyn Memorial in Toronto's Little Poland district, I always thought it was somebody's idea of how to use a broken piece of rock they couldn't use for a REAL monument.
