The statue of Svetozar Miletić

The bronze statue of Svetozar Miletić (1826-1901), the most prominent Serbian political leader in Austria-Hungary, Member of Parliament, lawyer and the City Mayor was first put up in 1939 in the Liberty Square in front of the City Hall. This 500 cm tall monument was built by Ivan Meštrović. The statue was pulled down during the World war II, but brought back in 1944. Sculptor Pavle Radovanović designed a new marble pedestal in 1951 and carved ‘Svetozar Miletić 1826 – 1901 by Ivan Meštrović 1939’ on it. The monument is designated as cultural heritage site of great importance.
