Sightseeing of Lviv...

Adam Mickiewicz Column
The Adam Mickiewicz Monument, also called the Adam Mickiewicz Column, is situated in the centre of Lviv in the Adam Mickiewicz Square and is a historic and cultural sightseeing place of the city.  

Adam Mickiewicz Square
The solemn opening of the column took place on October 30th, 1904 and was of great importance for a national consciousness of the Poles, living in Lviv. The idea of erecting the monument to the famous poet was brought up repeatedly by the city’s Polish Diaspora after his death, but it was realised at the end of the 19th century with creating the Adam Mickiewicz cult as a Polish genius person.

Monument to King Daniel 
Daniel I of Galicia or Daniel Romanovych or Danylo Halytskyi was a King of Galicia (Halych) (1205–1255), Peremyshl (1211), and Volodymyr (1212–1231). He was crowned by a papal archbishop in Dorohochyn 1253 as the first King of Rus'(1253–1264).
 
The solemn opening ceremony of the monument was held on October 26, 2001 in Lviv on Halyts’ka Square. Sculptors Vassyl’ Yarytch and Roman Romanovytch and architect Yarema Tchurylo are the authors of the monument. The monument is 10 meters high; 9 t of bronze and 60t of granite were used for its creation...
