This statue is located just before who entrance to to Old city. It is above the statues of the fountain of the Mothers. Another gorgeous statue of The statue of Filip 11 the father of Alexander the great, standing proud and waving. Another must-see statue.

After a few days of walking around Skopje, the abundance of sculptures (including an inordinate number of men on horseback) leaves you feeling immune to them. This is just one among many.

Great monument and fountain build next to the Old Bazzar. The fountain is perfect at night because theres a light show representing the colors of the macedonian flag. Cool place to visit and take couple of pictures.

Another one from the irrelevant statues in the city. There's lots of them. You might want to see the Winston Churchill one instead.

Newly built, out of place in the old part of town, and not worth a trip. Instead, head to the nearby Old Bazaar to visit the many monuments that date several centuries back

Without judging upon any historical facts, the political content of this monument takes away its artistic relevance. New, nice, but after all strange and provocative. This is true for most of the monuments nearby, newly built only in the last couple of years.

I still give it low marks just for the fact that they spent good money on these tacky oversized tchotchkes when the money could have been earmarked for so much better. They could have done less and smaller sculptures but better quality, and taken their time about the project.

That said, I have traveled throughout the capital cities of Europe for the last six months and have had my fill of magnificent, old word, top notch, well executed sculpture. The garish, hyper scaled, metal "Colossi of Scopje" gave me some much needed comic relief after all of the tragedy that I have encountered as I toured the Balkans.

It's a win-win situation. People with no taste can enjoy their artistic merit, and those with some cultural sophistication can have a good laugh.

The statue is too big and too new for the place. Also the fountain underneath it is illuminated in a shock inducing green and pinkish violet during the dark which looks really cheap. And funny.
