Was walking around the edge of old town Krakow when I saw this off side street. Beautiful statue commemorating the battle of Gruwald. Just requires a few minutes and is just a short distance off the green belt that encircled old town Krakow.

An impressive monument with heroic figures commemorating the battle to end battles of the time. It was destroyed under communist rule and recreated to original plans and photos after that.

The battle was fought between the Teutonic Knights and the armies of Lithuania/Poland in 1410. The original monument was destroyed by the Nazis in WW2. The reproduction was unveiled in 1976.

I decide to visit this monument after visiting the Barbican. The monument included other figures that were beautifully sculpted. Took pictures of this monument. Note that at this location is an excellent place to take pictures of the Barbican.

This monument is strikingly different from those erected today after a victorious war. There are no angels with bowed heads, weeping mothers holding dead sons, or soldiers kneeling over their dead companions. This monument glorifies the Polish victory over their enemy, the Teutonic Knights in...More
