King Aleksandar Monument

  Trg Kralja Aleksandra     more than a year ago
Standing tall in his own square, one the biggest in Niš, King Aleksandar gallantly looks on from his mighty horse. Made by the Belgrade sculptor Rade Stanković in 1939, it was removed and destroyed in the immediate years after the communists' rise to power (1946). In order to rectify the injustice to this important historical figure, in 2004, the citizens of Niš erected a new monument of Aleksandar. Made by the Belgrade sculptor Zoran Ivanović, it is 11.5 meters high and weighs over 3 tons. King Aleksandar is remembered for being the first to proclaim the unity of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in 1918. He was later assassinated in Marseilles (1934).
