Monument "winner" is a symbol of the Kalemegdan Fortress and the Belgrade but. It is located in a place perfectly visible from the mouth of the Sava and the Danube from Belgrade, Novi.
The monument is a symbol of victory over ImperiumTureckim Serbia and Austro-Hungarian Monarchy during the war from 1912 until 1918. It is the work of the famous sculptor Ivan Meštrovi? (1883-1962). Originally, the statue was to be part of a larger sculptural composition and had to stand on the central town square - Terazije. However, the idea has met with sharp criticism of society - especially the Belgrade ladies opposed placing the model of a naked man in such a representative place.

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
