Adam Mickiewicz Monument, Warsaw: 8 reviews and 13 photos

 
 

Designed by C.Godebski. The monument to the greatest Polish poet. Unveiled in 1898, 100 years after his birth, in the epoch of intense Russification of Poland after the January Uprising.

Its inauguration was a success of the Construction Committee headed by Michal Radziwill and Henryk Sienkiewicz (future Nobel Prize in literature). In 1942, the Nazis destroyed it and transferred to Hamburg. Only the head and a fragment of the torso were recovered for the post-war reconstruction works carried out under J.Szczepkowski and J.Trenarowski. Unveiled in 1950.

Address: Krakowskie Przedmiescie

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
