Podgaric Monument

Memorial Croatia, Croatia

History or Sci-Fi? Podgaric Monument

Monument to the Revolution of the people of Moslavina or simply Monument to the Revolution (Croatian: Spomenik revolucije naroda Moslavine) is a World War II memorial sculpture by Dušan Džamonja, located in Podgarić, Berek, Croatia. It is dedicated to the people of Moslavina during World War II.

The confusion is easy, especially for Star Wars enthusiasts. The monument bears a striking resemblance to Han Solo’s trusty spaceship, the Millennium Falcon. Aside from being a 1970s spaceship doppelgänger, the Podgarić Monument is actually an impressive architectural feat. Atop a hill in the small town of Podgarić, the monument towers over an artificial lake below. The monument was commissioned by Tito, Yugoslavia’s long-time dictator, who commissioned a number of similar monuments to World War II sites throughout Yugoslavia. Most of the sites were former Yugoslav Partisan memorials, the party which Tito was involved and who took over after the war
