Pomnik Adama Mickiewicza na Rynku Głównym

Monument which is commonly call “Adaś” from years is a constant meeting place for not only people who are leaving in Krakow but for everyone who’s visiting the city.

Monument design by Teodor Rydygier was officially unveiled on 26.06.1898, on the hundredth birth of the great national bard.

10 meters tall sculpture presents Mickiewicza standing on pedestal and under his feet there’s four allegories written : Fatherland, Poetry, Courage and Science.

The monument was decorated with inscription “ to Adam Mickiewicz-the Nation” 

In 1940 the monument was destroyed by the Nazis following German invasion on Poland. After the Second World War monument was recovered from pieces founded on a scrap-heap in Hamburg.

It’s where every single year the “Szopka Krakowska” competition begins and where high school graduates are jumping on one leg around pedestal for a good luck on upcoming high school certificate exams.

Every year on Christmas Eve, which is also the day of Adam’s Mickiewicz birthday, the florist from Krakow are decorating monument with flowers to pay a tribute to the great national bard.
