- This monument was definitely well created and put in the perfect spot. It is located inside the fortress, and to the left when you walk in.

- We stumbled over this statue when we walked up the stairs from beside it and saw this in a little square.
I didn't know what it was and found out later that it was the Emperor Nikolai. He supported Serbia in the war and saved a lot of lives of the Serbian forces. This monument serves as reminder of the gratitude towards him for what he did.Written May 24, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I was on the mountain Avala numerous times and always have seen something new. This summer in my walkings on the paths of this sole mountain around Belgrade, I descended from the top level of Avala and on the one of the trails leading downwards, found this modest but evocative monument dedicated to members of the Soviet military delegation who were killed in an airplane crash here on the Avala in 1964.The delegation was flying to Belgrade to attend the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the liberation of Belgrade on October 20,1944. Marshal Biryuzov and general Zhdanov were killed among others.

- This monument is in honour of Borislav Pekić, a Serbian writer and political activist. He is known for his writings concerning anti-dogmatism, scepticism and his second novel, “The Pilgrimage of Arsenije Njegovan” set around the Yugoslavian student protests of 1968. None of which sat well with the Communist government of the time and forced him into exile. Happily he returned and became one of the founding members of The Democratic Party in Serbia. The monument is a bronze sculpture of Pekić sitting at the top of some steps. He is depicted in a relaxed pose, with his right arm resting on his thigh. He is looking ahead and slightly up, with a benign expression, but looks deep in thought.Written June 22, 2023
