NO MATTER HOW YOU FEEL about the Olympic Games, chances are you have watched some of the greatest athletes on earth thanks to its rotating showcase. The legacies of each Olympics remain varied and often controversial but there are still plenty of places that can take you back to some out of this world performances.
I’d heard of Atlanta 1996 venues in Florida but the Moscow 1980 sailing venue in Estonia. Yup. In expensive Norway, you can still climb halfway to the top of the Lillehammer 1994 ski jump for absolutely no money at all. And if you like abandoned places, devote part of your time in Sarajevo for scavenging for Olympic sites with a guide.
