October 20, 2019 - The post-World War II period was the motivation for many architects in the design of monuments throughout Yugoslavia, and in that wave, Svetlana Kana Radevic, the first architect in Montenegro born in 1937, designed the Monument to the Fallen Fighters of Lješanska Nahija in two Balkan and two World Wars.

The memorial occupies a large space, which fits perfectly on the plateau, and after the stairs are well preserved, it goes on stage. The culmination of this project comes at the very moment you reach the end and find yourself in an open amphitheater.

The stone chairs are designed to organize various cultural events in the future, and the stone walls to which the entire monument is bordered respect the traditional dry-stone walls that were raised in rural areas.

Unfortunately, like many other historical monuments, it is left to itself to resist the tooth of time.

The 12m high monument was built in 1980, and its work lasted five years.
