After the statue “Warrior” with all the auxiliary elements was erected in May 2012, the former “Karposh Uprising” Square was renamed, Philip the Second after Alexander the Great’s father.

The square at the entrance to the Old Bazaar is comprised of four fountains with sculptures, among which is the fountain with the statue of the ancient king, towering at a height of 28 metres. Also on the square is a sculpture representing Olympia, the mother of Alexander the Great, holding her son in her arms. This complex features fountains encased in reliefs with floral motifs and sculptures of the phalanx army, mothers with children, horses and lions.

All sculptures and reliefs were authored by Valentina Stevanovska who won second place in the competition for her conceptual design. There was no first prize during this competition, so the second place design was selected by default.
