Warsaw

Cross-monument

  Pl. Piłsudskiego     more than a year ago

Nine metres high and made of white granite June 6, 2009 saw the unveiling of giant cross on pl. Piłsudskiego. It was here that Pope John Paul II returned to Warsaw for the first time after being made pope, and it was also on this spot a candlelit vigil was held when news first broke of his death. The inscription is taken from his sermon and reads: ‘Let your spirit come down and renew the face of earth, this earth’. Unveiled by Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz Waltz and Archbishop Kazimierz Nycz, the towering monument was designed by Jerzy Mierzwiaka, Marek Kuciński and Natalia Wilczak.
