King Aleksandar Monument at King Aleksandar Square
The original monument presenting King Aleksandar on a horse, made by the Belgrade sculptor Rade Stankovic in 1939, was removed and destroyed in the first years after the rise of communists to power, in 1946. In order to rectify the injustice to this important historical figure, in 2004, the citizens of Nis put up a new monument of Aleksandar. Made by the Belgrade sculptor Zoran Ivanovic, 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 assassinated in Marseilles in 1934.
