Parkett you can usually sand off and repolish. This is not hard just a hand sander and the matching color to paint it back. Or just put a flower pot there.

You must identify just what the floor is made of first...

Raaz, don't take advice from that old yank regarding floors (or engineering, ethics, class, style, politics, history etc). They know nothing about these topics.

You can tell that the floor surface is melted. IE not hardwood. The bad aspect about that is that it can not be repaired. You need to replace 2-3 of those boards. I suggest you talk to the landlord about the brand. Unfortunately there will be some problems colour matching between the old and the new boards. Maybe just forfeit the deposit?

If you noticed the white areas it is probably vinyl piece/sheet...

If it is the strip piece kind then replacement is viable, if it is sheet vinyl then a patch has to be cut and fitted, not an easy task, as the patch will always be visible...

Good luck in finding a competent floor mechanic...
I'm thinking the best way is to involve the landlord now as a patch will always been seen later...
