Monument to the Defenders of Belgrade from 1915
Description

Author: Kolja Milunović (Along the Danube banks, at the Sports Centre; erected in 1988)

The monument bears the words of major Gavrilović’s order: “At precisely three o’clock the enemy is to be dispersed by a forceful advance, crushed by your bombs and bayonets. The honour of Belgrade, our capital, must be preserved. Soldiers, heroes, the High Command erased our regiment from its standing numbers. Our regiment has been sacrificed for King and Country. You have no need to worry for your lives, for they exist no more. Therefore, onwards to glory! Long live the King! Long live Belgrade!”
