The Winter Olympics in 1984 were held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia (in what is now Bosnia and Herzegovina). It was the first Winter Olympic Games held in a socialist state.
During the Siege of Sarajevo (1992 - 1996), the longest siege of a capital city in modern warfare, fighters on both sides took to the mountains surrounding the city, using the Olympic structures as battlements and storage for their fighting and weapons. The bobsled track became an artillery stronghold for Bosnian-Serbs—some defensive holes, drilled by troops, can still be seen in the track's concrete walls. The ski jumps—also sites of heavy fighting—remain unused. Only recently this area has been cleared off from land mines.
