Statue of victory in the Thessaloniki front

Bulevar vojvode Bojovica, Belgrade

In the west corner of the Belgrade fortress is a statue of the Victor (Pobednik), work of sculptor Ivan Mestrovic made in 1928. It is dedicated to the triumph of Serbian soldiers in the Thessaloniki front. Postament is made out of stone and a sculptor of a man was done in bronze. The man is holding a pigeon in his left hand and a sword in his right.He is a symbol of a man ready to defend his homeland. The idea was to make a fountain on the Terazije but the decision was made to move the sculpture to the fortress, away from the city’s center.
