MORE INFO:

The Cair’s Fountain has been relocated a number of times. For the first time, it was moved from today’s King Milan Square to Cair Park in 1935. so that the monument to the liberators of Nis could be put up. It remained in the park for 70 years, up until 1997, when it was returned to the central city square.
