Trg Partizana, Uzice, Srbija, 2007[open in full screen]  

 
 

In the beautiful town of Uzice, in Zlatibor region, previously known as Tito's Uzice, in 1961 this square was ceremoniously opened together with monumental 5 meters tall statue of the Tito. He was famous leader of Yugoslavia during the resistence to the Germans in the second world war and life time president after the war. After his death in 1981 citizens get divided over should his monument be removed.

 

It was finally moved to the courtyard of the city museum in 1991 [small photo bellow] but square remains named after Tito's Partizans. Opening sight of the panorama above is a spot were monument stood on the high ground overlooking the waste space.

In 2017 I've heard that city officials are considering returning this monument to its original position because it has great tourist value!

  Square is a typical example of socialist ceremonial square of large proportions designed for state ceremonies and celebrations [and of course Tito's famous speeches in crisis situations]. Today square and surrounding buildings are in poor shape but for the square of this size it has quite nice proportions and atmosphere.
