Monument to the victims of NATO aggression - basic information
As a monument to witness a recent historical event, in 2008 a monument to the victims of NATO aggression was unveiled in front of the Gallery of the National Museum.
During the 1999 bombing, Vranje was one of many buildings that suffered both material damage and loss of life.
The municipalities of the Pčinja district, to which Vranje also belongs, were bombed for 78 days. During that period, bombs were dropped on civilian houses, as well as on television repeaters and a radio and television tower on Mount Pljackovica.
Where is the monument located
That is why, in memory of all the victims who were made then, there is a monument in the center of Vranje, which contains 95 names of killed citizens, soldiers and police officers.
The monument symbolizes the power that descends to the earth, but also the sun that stands in the name of eternity above the engraved names of the victims. The author of the monument is a Belgrade sculptor, originally from Presevo, Stanimir Pavlovic.
