Memorial park is Kragujevac's landmark. It is not far from the center. You can either walk or take a taxi. It is cheap to go raxi. This memorial park is a beautiful place with touching history. At the entrance to the park, there is a museum dedicated to the victims that German Nazis executed during World War II. Very moving. During the German Nazi occupation of Serbia, students and teachers were executed at this location. This as a revenge whsere the Germans killed 100 Serbs for a dead German soldier. Sad and tragic history. It is a beautiful park with a tragic history. Highly recommended if you are hungry for history and fantastic nature.

Memorial Park Sumarice is a place in the town called Kragujevac, in Central Serbia, where you can remember the mass murder of Serbians by nazi army. Really, it is an emotive park, where there are a lot of sculptures to remember people, who live here during 2nd World War Period and fight against the occupation forces. It is a place to walk, relax and remember the past. Also, in the central part of the park, there is the October 21st Memorial (a horrible day, when the mass murder was done in the town), where you can learn about the 20th Century History. In fact, a lot of explanations are only in Serbian language, but the staff was very friendly with us and he helped us and explain us a lot of things about the museum. Very interesting. Very emotive place.

A peaceful and lovely park with symbolic, beautiful statues among massgraves to memories of lives lost through execution during ww2. The walk is app. 3-4 km. long but really enjoyable. Just some of the statues published here.

Memorial park is full of interesting things to see. Tribute to the school boys & teachers that lost their lives in WW2. Memorial is held every October and nearby is the museum which is very interesting. There is plenty of nature surrounding you and a lovely hotel serving meals. Nearby is a pheasant park if you are interested with walking tracks all over the area. Across the road is a continuation of the memorial and also a lake that you can swim in with cafes and a couple of resturants overlooking the lake. Might be a bit tricky if having to take someone in a wheelchair off the made road onto the grassy areas.

A very good place combing history and art (the museum is well presented)and nature (you will have to walk quite a while, the whole park has over 300ha). Don’t miss the lake, you can even swim there. The terrace nearby has good food as well.
