BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA: Former Olympic Bobsleigh Track Trebević – Lost Place Graffiti

The former Trebević Olympic bobsleigh slope near Sarajevo was an artificial ice track on Mount Trebević, where the competitions for the 1984 Winter Olympics were held. During the war in 1991 parts of the slope were badly damaged and restoration would have been too expensive, so the sports facility has lain fallow ever since and is no longer used by athletes, but all the more by spray can artists. The entire track is painted with graffiti and characters from the summit to the valley! A fantastic and picturesque lost place in the middle of the mountain landscape.
