I agree.
This is a bit too devilish though...

Well, somehow I like this Stalinist monster, and I am happy they didn┤t tear it down after 1990. It is so oversized, tasteless and grotesque that it already is funny in a strange way - reminds me of this ridiculous 600m-monstrosity they are building in Mecca at the moment.

socrealism is mostly high-quality architecture, parhaps it migh seem oversized in contrast with the giant empty square and some people say that it's too bulky on the ground level but I certainly woudn't call it tasteless.

It┤s mostly the grotesque bourgeoise decoration of the Stalinist buildings that is so funny especially for socialist monuments and the disproportion of their parts that makes them look so strange. The later concrete commieblocks are ugly but without any doubt show a higher sense of taste and coherence in my opinion.

Day 21-25: Vienna, Austria

From Krakow, I took the night train to my home city Vienna where I spent four days but took no pictures for this thread as I already have an own Vienna thread. Then I continued my journey with the night train in direction of Bucharest. I planned to leave the train in the western Romanian city of Arad to travel through the country from west to east from there but fell asleep and missed my station so that I had to leave the train at the next station - Deva, a city of 67,000 in western Transilvania. There I took the next train back to Arad, but I had to wait for more than two hours so that I could take the opportunity to take some pictures of Deva as well. The picture┤s quality is not that good as the weather was terrible and I had to take them with one hand while carrying 25 kilos of luggage with my other hand, but I think the pictures though give you an impression of what an average Romanian city without being influenced by tourism looks like. Somehow, it was hard to believe that this is really still Europe and not a third world city.

Day 25: Deva, Romania
