June 4, 2014. On the edge of the hill top of the stairs leading to the fountain Multimedialny park was unveiled by the President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski and President of France Francois Hollande sculpture of Maria Sklodowska-Curie.
The sculpture is a gift from the Association of the Legion of Honor and members of French National Order of Merit for Warsaw .This is a symbol of the Polish-French friendship. The unveiling of the monument coincided with the 80th anniversary of the death of Nobel laureate (4 July 1934).
The location of the monument is not accidental. The sculpture stands near ul. Freta, where was born the Nobel laureate. Maria Sklodowska loved the location and the view, which goes to him.
Maria Sklodowska-Curie is the only woman to receive the Nobel Prize twice, and also the only scholar to whom it was granted in two different fields of natural sciences. She was born in Warsaw. In the capital spent the first 19 years of his life. In 1891 she went to Paris and studied at the Sorbonne. In 1893, he received a bachelor's degree in physics, and a year later - mathematics. In 1895, she married French physicist - Pierre Curie. She knew five languages, was interested in sociology, psychology and science.A her death she was first buried in Sceaux in the vault of the Curie family, his remains will be transferred with those of her husband Pierre Curie in vault VIII of the Pantheon in Paris on 20 April 1995 decision of President François Mitterrand and in the presence of the Polish president Lech Wałęsa... It is, until 2014, the only woman honored in the Pantheon for its own merit

In 2009, the British magazine "New Scientist" Sklodowska-Curie recognized as the greatest woman scientist of all time. .

The statue is very easy to find and it is well situated : Ulica Koscielna ..Go out from the old town by the Barbican Gate and you are in Freta Street .. .. Keep up to Koscielna Street and turn right ..The statue is in the end of the street . next to the Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary ... 5-10 minutes from the the Old town place ..For the fans of Maria Curie or if you are in the area and nothing to do !!

The only person to win two Nobel Prizes in different fields is rightly celebrated by this statue. She looks great and probably should be celebrated more worldwide.
It's a very pleasant park to wander through from the Old Town to the river.
Well worth having a relaxing walk to see.

You have the statue in the wrong location. It is at the edge of the old town area a km or so from her house Kościelna, 00-001 Warszawa, Poland right at the top of the hill from the fountain.

Monument dedicated to Maria Skłodowska Curie - a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person and the only woman to win the Nobel Prize twice. She was also the only person to win the Nobel Prize in two scientific fields. Moreover in 1906 she bacame the first woman - professor at the University of Paris. There is really nice view from that place.

Its a lovely statue and quite idiosyncratic, makes you wonder just what it is she is holding and then to take the trouble to find out, good one.

Found this statue along the river when walking around the Old Town. A wonderful inspirational woman. It always amazes me what you can find walking around cities.

Located at a dramatic point , only a few minutes walk from New Town Market Square , standing in front of a nice church , and looking down over the Multimedia Park Fountain . A beautiful sight : Both the famous monument and the area around you . Don't miss the calmness , and make sure you carry your cameras .

Located at the top of the hill near the Multimedia Fountain, this statue is pretty big! I found it nice, since she had attained some awesome results on her scientific world.

I had no idea that Madam Curie was from Poland until i saw the this statue overlooking the Vistula River, The statue is brilliant but i feel the location not an apt one. The best way is to walk down to the fountain area from old town and then see it. The other way to reach is to walk through the ld down and through the Barbikan area . If this statue was placed near to the Vistula river bank , this statue would have got more visibility and attraction. So when you go to Old town next time try to find this statue and also sit and enjoy from the top the view of vistula river
