This striking memorial for Adam Mickiewicz, the greatest Polish poet of the Romanticism period was unveiled on 16 June 1898.
The best-known monument in Krakow is a favorite meeting point in the Main Market Square and is also a subject of various celebrations. On our visit, there was a demonstration for Ukraine in front of the monument.
The monument shows Adam Mickiewicz standing on a pedestal. Sitting at his feet are four allegorical figures symbolizing Homeland, Science, Courage, and Poetry.
