Memorial Charnel House
Memorial Charnel HouseThe Memorial House, dedicated to the fallen troops in NOV (National Liberation War) from Veles and the Veles region, was constructed in 1980 as one of the largest and artistically most coherent complexes of architect Sasa Subotin and sculptor Ljubomir Denkovic, with  mosaic composition by Petar Mazev, and the horticultural design of Dragan Soljev. The monuments occupy a dominant location, which opens like an amphitheatre towards the city of Veles and is conceived as a symbolic and evocative architectural form -- “bunker.”
