Photographer's Note

On centre of Krakow's Matejki Square stands a large monument with six sculptures, it was originally erected in 1910 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the victory of the combined Polish and Lithuanian forces over the Teutonic Knights. During the WW II it was destroyed by the Nazis, but returned to the square as a faithful copy in 1976. The picture here shows the back side of the monument with of a happy peasant whose chains were cut. Workshop 1 picture shows the left side of the monument where a Lithuanian warrior hold a bond hostage. Workshop 2 picture shows the right side with a Polish Knight and squire. There are many good pictures of the front of the monument with the Polish King on the top and on the front, the Lithuanian prince and the dead Teutonic Orderís Grand Master, who lost his life in the battle of Grunwald.
You can see the front view by clicking one these links: a 2011 TE picture by Wladyslaw Targosz (vladic) or the
