Yeah, yeah, I know, "more Macedonia - stop already"

I will stop soon with the Macedonia pictures. Promise. But first some cool statues and monuments from the cold old commie days.

This monument is hard to see. It is ignored, off a side road. It took some digging to find it.

I shows the people of Macedonia first fighting the Ottoman Empire (on the left of the large monument with detail on the left upper picture) and the right shows the people of Macedonia and Yugoslavia partisans fighting the Axis powers in World War II, particularly the Nazis. Thee is a good detail picture on the upper right of the college.

Couldn't find out anything about this, but I like it a lot.

This was outside the original Telecommunications building.

And, no, I don't understand this one either

This was outside the new Post Office. It has no plaque or anything but was made during the brutalist period. I really liked this.
