It became a symbolic place for honoring all the warriors in the wars of 1912-1918. years.

This is an architectural and sculptural work done according to the designs of Ivan Mestrovic, an extremely engaged sculptor in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The artist was chosen for the power that a monument of such importance was supposed to work on. In the design of the program concept, besides Meštrović, I also took the lead decision in the selection of the project, I brought King Alexander.
