Going underground

When you leave the main railway station of Wrocław, Poland towards the city center you can find a crossing (Piłsudskiego / Świdnicka) where statues walk into the ground and appear on the other side of the road again. It is the underground passage memorial, reminding on the anti-communist movement in 1981.

Martial law (Stan wojenny w Polsce) then forced people to go underground. The memorial was opened in 2006 and consists of fourteen statues made of bronze. Apart from its aesthetic value it is a reminder what life under authoritarian reign means and how valuable democracy is.
