tatue of the Victor or Statue of Victory (Serbian Cyrillic: Победник) is a monument in the Kalemegdan fortress in Belgrade, erected on 1928 to commemorate the Kingdom of Serbia's war victories over the Ottoman Empire (First Balkan War) and Austria-Hungary (World War I). It is one of the most famous works of Ivan Meštrović. The name of the statue represents the Victory of Liberty. It is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Belgrade. The statue, holds a falcon, on watch for the new threats on the horizon, in one hand, and a sword of war, ready to counter these threats in the other. It's looking forward across the confluence of the Sava and the Danube, and over the vast Pannonian plain, towards the very distant Fruška Gora mountain, towards the (at the time), Austro-Hungarian empire, it is probably the most powerful, most popular visual symbol of Belgrade.
