Monument to Adam Mickiewicz

Description:

Vasyl Bovda traveled from the village of Verbychi in the Chernihiv oblast to Lviv to visit his family, and is pictured here against the backdrop of one the best-known monuments in the Soviet Union – the monument of the important and thought-provoking Polish poet, Adam Mickiewicz. In the background are stone building No. 8 (housing Lviv’s largest bookstore, “House of Books,” on the first floor), the tower of the Latin Cathedral, and part of building No. 9. The area surrounding the monument has already lost its shine – the famous Lombardy poplars; at the base of the column stands an unknown plant inside a decorative vase that was mass-produced by the Lviv Ceramic and Sculpture Factory.

The monument to the national Polish poet was opened on 30 October 1904. Its construction was carried out from late 1903 under the supervision of Alfred Zachariewicz and Józef Sosnowski. The author of the project, who won an architectural competition, was Antoni Popiel, a famous sculptor. Earlier, there was a figure of the Virgin Mary on its place.
