As we returned to our coach,we all stopped for a drink by the cafe situated across the road from this sculpture.There were several older gentleman dressed in suits and their was a marching band nearby too.I walked over and got a photo and the cafe owner later explained that it was a Monument paying respect to victims of terror and war.This sculpture can be found a really short distance from the market and on the right as you enter Rovinj.

When we visit Rovinj, we always stop at the Monument to fallen fighters and victims of Fascist terror. We mustn't forget the history if we won't to make the same mistakes in the future. Anyway, it's nice piece of art.

During 1945 and 1946, fascism faced strong opposition and many lives were lost. So, that their sacrifice should never be forgotten, This monument commemorates the victims and others who strongly opposed the fascists.

The monument was designed by Ivan Sabolic and it was constructed in 1956.
A translation of the dedication on the bottom of the memorial says:
"fallen soldiers and victims fascist terror"
