Monument to King Peter I Karadjordjevic

The monument, about 4.5 meters high, is located in front of the Municipality of Backa Palanka.

The initiative for the erection of the monument was submitted by prof. Dr. Svetozar Boskov and Dr. Predrag Vajagic, in accordance with the decision of the Commission for Nurturing Historical Traditions in the municipality of Backa Palanka. The occasion is also marking the centenary of the annexation of Vojvodina to the Kingdom of Serbia, and by erecting this monument, Backa Palanka received a mark that can identify all its inhabitants. More than 80 years have passed since the first initiative to erect this monument. On the front page of the provincial newspaper "Straža" from 1928, it was written about the ceremony of the Committee for the erection of a monument to King Peter I. A year earlier, in 1927, in the same newspaper in the issue of March 13, an article entitled "Monument to King Peter in Palanka" was published. This initiative was initiated by the then board of postal officials and employees in Backa Palanka.

The monument is the work of the academic sculptor Đorđe Lazić Ćapša from Sremski Karlovci, and it was placed in the park in front of the seat of the municipality of Bačka Palanka, closer to the pedestrian path. That is how the most beloved Serbian ruler will live in his street, because the main provincial shore bears his name.

The boat 

At the entrance to Bačka Palanka from the direction of Novi Sad, there is a monument in the shape of a boat (obelisk).

"Obelisk on the embankment"

"Obelisk on the embankment"which symbolizes the fight against the water element in 1965, and is located next to the children's playground near Lake Tikvara.


Monument to kayaker Milan Janjic

In the SRC "Tikvara", a bas-relief of kayaker Milan Janic was erected and a monument was erected on the occasion of the defense of Backa Palanka from the 1965 flood.

Monument to Luka Vukalović in Gajdobra

In the thematically designed square, next to the magnificent statue of Luka Vukalović, there is a fountain representing the ship he took to Russia and which he watched with longing in the hope that he would return among his Herzegovinians and finish the fight for freedom against the Ottoman monster.

181-683 × 1024 Luka Vukalović did not receive that ship, he did not receive the Herzegovinian victory over the Turks, but he never left the heart of the Herzegovinians and then and today he remained the leader.

The general impression is that this great Serbian hero will surely experience the fate of Jovan Dučić, and that his earthly remains will come to his native Herzegovina one day. Maybe this is the generation of Herzegovinians who will complete this task.

Identical monuments will be unveiled on August 2 in his native Zupci and on August 19 in Trebinje.

Bust of Gabriel Princip in Tovariševo

The initiative to erect a bust of Princip and a memorial plaque to Thessaloniki volunteers came from the branch of the Association "Ognjena Marija Livanjska" from Tovariševo and Obrovac, as well as the local community "Tovariševo", where people from Princip's homeland arrived during the 1946 colonization. Gavrilo Princip is important to Tovarishevo I because in this village, during 1946, people from the homeland of Gavrilo Princip were colonized.
