Best of Sarajevo 1984

5 Oct 2010

Surrounded by the pine-forested Dinaric Mountains, the 1984 Olympic Winter Games took place for the first and only time in a Socialist country, Yugoslavia. Initially the host city Sarajevo was buried by snow, blinded by fog and then blasted by 190km/hwinds that shredded the alpine skiing schedule. Weather aside, the host nation gained high marks for their hospitality, and there was no indication of the tragic war that would engulf the city only a few years later.
