The contest for the design of a monument to Wojciech Korfanty was announced in June 2018. The winning design, selected from among 11 works, was created by Karol Badyna from Pracownia Rzeźby FORMA in Cracow. The monument will be located at the junction of Al. Ujazdowskie and ul. Agrykola in Warsaw. It will complement the trail of monuments to people connected to Poland’s independence, which stretches along the Royal Route – from pl. Trzech Krzyży with the monument to Wincenty Witos, and up to the Belvedere Palace with the statue of Józef Piłsudski. The other people commemorated on the route are Ignacy Jan Paderewski (in Ujazdów Park) and Roman Dmowski (at the corner of Al. Ujazdowskie and al. Szucha). The statue will be cast in bronze and placed on a cubical granite block. It will be about 3 metres high. The monument will bear the inscription: ’Wojciech Korfanty, 1873–1939, politician, Christian Democrat‘. The unveiling ceremony is planned to take place in autumn 2019.
