Monument to Adam Mickiewicz at Main Market Square
Lesser Poland Voivodeship
Directly next to the Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) on the Krakow's Main Market Square (Rynek Glowny) stands Poland's most eminent scribe: Adam Mickiewicz.
One of the most important statues in Poland to the romantic poet and national hero Adam Mickiewicz was originally unveiled in 1898 to celebrate the centenary of the great man's birth. Like so many other symbols of national pride it was destroyed by the Germans during WWII. The statue that stands in the Market Square today is a 1955 copy of Teodor Rygier's original, and is a popular and easily recognisable meeting place.
Ironically, the bard never visited the city until after his death when his remains were transferred to the Wawel Cathedral Crypt, but this hasn't stopped the statue from becoming one of Kraków's best loved monuments.
Beautiful Statue right next to the cloth halls.
Monument of the most important poet in the Polish history. Today this is a landmark for meetups. Great spot to observe the Trumpet fireman and to feed the pigeons
