Monument of Goddess Hygieia [Pomnik Higiei]

Monument of Goddess Hygieia
Making a return after a bit of beauty work is the Greek Goddess Hygieia. The story begins in 1841 when Edward Raczyński constructed the city waterworks, choosing to place a well, decorated with intricate reliefs, between Marcinkowskiego and Lutego. In 1908 the well was moved down to Podgórna, with Albert Wolf choosing to embellish it further with the addition of Hygieia. The well was on the move once more in 1971, and since then can be found – complete with Greek Goddess – on pl. Wolności.
