  Mickiewicz's monument
by clairegeordio

This monument, of the poet Adam Mickiewicz, is situated in the Market square. During World War two it was destroyed by the Germans, but it was reconstructed in 1955 to commemorate the centenary of the poet?s death.
There are four representative figures surrounding the statue. One is of a woman with an eagle, which sits at the poet?s feet, another is of an elderly man, representing wisdom. A young man with a sword and shield represents courage and a woman with a lyre facing St Adalbert?s church is a symbol of poetry.

Address: Rynek Glowny
Directions: Main square in historical centre
