It looks interesting, like a modern sculpture, but the real meaning is a story of the beginning of the 1990-ies war in Osijek. That's what makes it interesting. Most of us from Osijek are emotionally attached to Red Fico.

Really great to see such a meaningful monument but it'd be even better if you know the background story. But even without the prior knowledge, it's a statement all people should understand.
