11 - Sculpture of famous Praga Band

The originator of the monument is Archbishop Sławoj Leszek Głódź, who decided to repay the honorary citizenship of the capital city of Warsaw. The monument designed by Andrzej Renes refers to backyard bands playing in Praga before the war. The pedestal made of brass presents five figures – a violinist, an accordionist, a guitarist, a banjolist and a drummer. The monument was unveiled in 2006 with the accompaniment of contemporary ensembles referring to the old folklore – Kapela Praska i Różyc Orkiestra. There was also a Kurpie band from village Kadzidło.
