This monument is close to the church and lake in a park like setting. A nice stop to see while walking around the church and lake.

The monument is located in a small park and is watching the Triglav mountain. On a clear day, it's easy to see how the men are looking at the mountain. The place is nice for a picnic by the river.

While waiting for the bus back to Bled after taking the boat across Lake Bohinj we walked across to the park containing the monument which was right alongside the main road. Views up to the mountains behind were impressive too.
