Interesting composition around the monument. Alexander the Great (Александар Карановић) was presented as a very large man compared to his horse, Bukefal (Јабукило), maybe it was intention of artist to present Alexander and Bukefal in this disproportion.

This statue is not impressive (too small) , badly carved and placed at the wrong spot ! Alexander the Great definitely deserves a better monument than this ! I sincerely feel sorry for Alexander !
