Krakow

Elvis Presley Monument

  Al. Elvisa Presleya     more than a year ago

One of Kraków's least known, hardest to find and most bizarre monuments, this tribute to the King is a pilgrimage worth making. Though located on an 'avenue' named in his honour, it's little more than a footpath into the beguiling woods of Zakrzówek and the picturesque quarry that lies beyond. A large standing stone with Elvis' face set in it and half-submerged in silicon, this seemingly wacky act of randomness is an in-all-seriousness tribute from the Kraków Elvis fan club. Recently the King's hair was spray-painted blue and he can usually be found in the company of artificial flowers. The perfect occassion for an outing, you'll find Elvis by departing Al. Gen. Zielińskiego for ul. Zielna, somewhere near where it meets ul. Pietrusińskiego (G-4) on the map in the back of this guide; where the road ends you'll find the King.
