Poland - The Old Marych Monument

The Old Marych Monument.

Sent by Helena from Poznań, Poland.

"The Monument of the Old Marych is placed at the corner of Wiosny Ludów Square, Półwiejska and Strzelecka Streets. The square lies to the South from the Old Square and it received its shape after 1945 when the ruins of the houses were removed. In the 15th century the Church of Holy Cross was built here along with the hospital for leprosy sufferers. In the 19th century at the corner of Półwiejska and Strzelecka Streets there existed the Golden Goose Inn, one of the first hotels in Poznań. Today this area is well known for its shops and shopping centres."(Source)
