The monument dedicated to the martyrs of the 1989 events

In December 1989, tragic events took place in Cluj-Napoca during demonstrations that led to the fall of the communist regime. A symbolic statuary ensemble was built in memory of those who lost their lives, shot near the University Library in the city center. The monument known as the “Shot Pillars” was made by the sculptor Liviu Mocan in the form of seven bronze columns that symbolically bear the marks of bullets.
