The Balkan Wars of 1912 – 1913

The first of the so-called flowers, as the author's project calls the smaller units of the complex, is a memorial to the heroes who died in the Balkan wars who confirmed that the battles for freedom are common for all Balkan countries. Namely, in 1912, they started a joint war for the final liberation from the Ottoman Empire and its 5 centuries long regency.

The people of Lješanj also took part in the battles that took place there. Numerous people died. It happened that a lot of families were gone after that battle, but the names and surnames of all of them remain shining with immortality. It happened with the family of Kikun Radunović, from the village of Progonović. After the death of one of his sons in the Russo-Japanese War, all three sons he still had - Alexa, Blagota and Ilija - died in the fights for Skadar. But, on his way to visit the graves of his sons, Kikun dies beside them because the grief was too great for his heart. Today, his sons live through their names carved on stone slabs, and also in the stories and epic song that is sung.

However, after the final reckoning with the Ottoman Empire, due to the disagreement over the division of the conquered territories, the Second Balkan War between Serbia and Bulgaria broke out. Montenegro provides assistance to Serbia and participates in decisive battles such as the battle of Bregalnica, in today's Northern Macedonia. In both Balkan wars, 115 people from Lešanje were killed. Their names are engraved on concentrically placed stone slabs, in this complex dedicated to these historical events.
