This sculpture is a beautiful tribute to the 16 young people killed during a protest in 1970. The names of those killed are carved on plaques at the base of the statue. A humbling experience to see and realize these people died not so long...More

This monument commemorates those who died in the uprising of 1970. Imposing in size, carrying a crown of thorns, but with a peaceful face, the angel reminds us that freedom often comes at a great cost.

This can be seen on a walking tour of the city center. It is very centrally located and easy to see whether walking or driving.

We have passed many times this angel. She is so beautiful and I couldn't help myself taking photos every day. She stands beside the modern concert hall in Szczecin.

Stumbled across this by accident, but it's a really important monument. It shows the names of those who died in the uprisings. Read a bit about it before you go to appreciate it fully. Dont miss it.

The Angel of Freedom @ Solidarity Square is full of symbolic meaning. The square as a setting with waves and the angel in a boat. Fitting for a port city. An angel to commemorate the fallen of the anti-communist riots. A symbol for the Solidarity...More

The monument is next to the Philharmony of Szczecin, in memory of Solidarity movement. The names of all that died in these riots have been listed on the monument.
