An amazing statue. Love the lions and the Macedonian soldiers, not to mention the larger than life Aleksander the Great, king of Macedonia, son of Fiip of Macedon.

As you walke around the square, you can't keep your eyes off this imposing statue of Alexander the Great. As he was an important historic figure, it is good that he is represented in a grand way by showing him in a most dramatic way....More

This huge statue dominates the main square as do some of the other sculptures found throughout the city. You can’t miss it as you wander around.

Veryyyyy beautiful monument. It has many statues on it. Lions, warriors, horses...it is an interesting architectural complex. As far as I see the man on the horse is Alexander the Great. Take time to look at all elements of the monument and the square...

I do not know the last you knew about the statues and fountains, but there are tons of new ones. They really are tastefully done, and really gorgeous. Very fun to walk around and see.
