The competition for the design of a monument to Wojciech Korfanty was announced in June 2018. The winning project, selected from among 11 works, was prepared by Karol Badyna from Pracownia Rzeźby FORMA in Krakow. The monument was erected at the intersection of Al. Ujazdowskie and ul. Agrykola in Warsaw. The sculpture itself complements the trail of monuments of people connected to Poland’s independence, which stretches along the Royal Route – from Pl. Trzech Krzyży with the monument of Wincenty Witos, and up to the Belweder with the statue of Józef Piłsudski. Other people commemorated on the route include Ignacy Jan Paderewski (in Ujazdów Park) and Roman Dmowski (at the intersection of Al. Ujazdowskie and Al. Szucha). The statue was cast in bronze and placed on a cubical, granite block. It is approx. 3 metres high. The monument bears the following inscription: “Wojciech Korfanty, 1873–1939, politician, Christian Democrat”. The unveiling ceremony of the monument took place on 25 October 2019.
