Poznan

Stary Marych

The bronze statue of a man with a bicycle that you may find yourself colliding with is that of Stary Marych (Old Marych), one of Poznań’s most beloved citizens. A fictional character who came to symbolise the typical Poznanian, the grumpy but decent Stary Marych was the creation of Juliusz Kubel, and featured heavily on Polish radio, all the time speaking in his particular and highly amusing Poznań dialect. Sculpted by Robert Sobociński, the photogenic codger has stood since 2001.
