Notes

  • Named Spomenik "Ustanak" on the city's website, "Monument to the Victims of Fascist Terror" according to the online paper. Info mostly from the city's website. It is unclear if these are two monuments with very similar design and both located in the park, or two different monuments.
  • There are also several busts of National Heroes in the park according to a forumpost

Directions
in Gradski Park. There are however, two Gradski Parks in Gradiska according to googlemaps. The choice has been made to chose the one near the center, with more trees, which looks older. This corresponds with the more foresty looking surrounding and the buildings in the pictures. Also openstreetmaps names this one "Gradski Park" and the more open one "Stanica"
