Spear of Destiny

Here’s the statue of king Boleslaw Chrobry (Boleslaw I of Poland, or Boleslaw The Brave) – the new monument in my town. Kinda too big and ugly in my opinion, but few photos came up OK. In his hand you can see the copy of legendary Holy Lance, that he received from Otto III, Holy Roman Emperor in year 1000 at the Congress of Gniezno. Only copy, but according to legend it contains splinters of the original hidden inside.

So now Spear of Destiny is watching over Breslau…
