  Monument to Njegos
by Prasnjavi

It is located between the Kapetan Misa's building and the Faculty of Philosophy.The author of this 260 centimeters (total height 540 centimeters) high monument, Sreten Stojanovic, made it in bronze. It was srected in 1994.

Petar Petrovic Njegos was one of our greatest thinkers and poets. As a young ruler, he has regulated political circumstances in the country and around it: he has organized the courts, managed to increase Russian aid, established the Senat, built the first elementary school and founded a printing-house in 1834. Having been raised on folk songs and poems, he himself has also written poems about struggle against the Turks but his mature poetic accomplishments are three epic poems: "Gorski vijenac", "Lazni car Scepan Mali" i "Luca mikrokozma". Basically reflexive-lyrical poet, he has remained that even in these works which have epical and dramatic form.
