It’s the best-known ‘meeting place’ at the Krakow’s main square. Adam Mickiewicz, who is commemorated by the monument, was a Polish national poet. The monument was unveiled for the first time in 1898, but destroyed during the Nazi occupation. What is significant is that the monument was first unveiled on 100th anniversary of the poet’s birth, and when rebuilt after war, unveiled for the second time in 100th anniversary of the poet’s death. The monument is proudly rising above the Market since then.
