    Monument of Aleksander Fredro

    In front of the entrance to the City Museum, western side of the town hall, you find the monument for Aleksander Fredro, the writer/poet from Lemberg/Lwow who is known as the Polish "Moliere". Previously there had been a statue of Friedrich Wilhelm II. at this place but after 1945 it was demolished and replaced by the current monument.

    The reason is that as the Germans were evicted from Breslau (later Wroclaw) Polish citizens were evicted from Lemberg (later Lwow) - and when they were settled at Wroclaw they brought their own local heros - like the writer Fredro. Understandable.

    Aleksander Fredro

    Fredro was one of Poland's great comic playwrights, and he was amongst the treasures that made the long journey from Lwow. Fredro had the privilege of replacing the sculpture of King Frederick II which adorned the Rynek before War (poor Freddie suffered the indignity of first being buried, before later being dug up and melted down!).

    Aleksander Fredro

    Aleksander Fredro was the greatest Polish comedy playwright. He mocked the vices of Polish noblemen. The monument was brought to Wroclaw in 1956 from Lvov. Today it's our favourite place for group photographs; for example students of final years take their class pictures here before exams and leaving school.
