Wreaths will be also placed by the delegation of the Defence Ministry and the Serbian Army, the president of the municipality of Lazarevac, representatives of the embassies of Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic in the Republic of Serbia, numerous municipalities, NGOs defined for cultivating the traditions of Serbia's liberation wars and others.

The Kolubara battle is not only the greatest allied victory achieved in 1914, but it is also a textbook example of a skillful strategic action of the fewer and less equipped armed forces who were defending and who managed to avert it into a quick and sudden offensive action.

Tactics applied by General Zivojin Misic presents the unique example of the military-strategic turn which brought the most significant victory in World War I to the almost defeated army.
