Boska used to be and probably still is the biggest shopping centre in Banja Luka, the capital of the republic of Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is probably the most empty one as well. The shopping centre still belongs to the state and recently failed privatisation, thus the stock has not been refilled for a long time, while the staff cannot be fired for some reason. It is quite surreal to walk through the centre, seeing empty shelves and bored saleswomen smoking inside.
