Located near the port, at the beginning of the promenade along the lake, it stands surroanded with a small, yet beautiful garden. It has no explanations available, so no way too kniw the history behind it, but you can still enjoy the fine art.

Well, just a simple monument of the authors of the slavic alphabet. Doesn't impress with anything and I don't recommend making it a trip target.

Catholic church inspired statue. It is a megalithic block of stone, and appears rather overpowering, rather inspiring. We felt that the sentiment was lost in the art.

The monuments are well located, and as usual in Macedonia, dedicated to religion. The statues are nice and it's pleasant to watch at them walking in the park, but nothing tremendous.
