Gamma World encounter setting idea
This article is titled "25 Abandoned Yugoslavia Monuments That Look Like They're From the Future" and, as the title implies, they are crazy war monuments that do look like they're from the future. The first thing that popped into my head though would be to use them as crazy terrain or settings for Gamma World encounters, or even areas that can be explored (or have been occupied as bases by enemies like in Fallout). You could probably approximate knockups of the overhead view for the map, and then use the photos as a play aid to show what the characters are actually gathered around. I love using real monuments and locations to add spice to an encounter, and I love objects in an encounter map that can be used as cover or concealment to keep the fight more interesting.
