A statue of one of Gdansk and Poland's greatest Generals who led the Polish Army to Victory, some great places to eat nearby and a must try is the Milk Bar where traditional Polish food is served at unbelievably low prices

Ok, it’s “just a statue”, but I cannot give commemoration of his endeavours in Wien any less than 5 stars.

Jan III Sobieski is one of the famous Polish kings. His name is connected with the important battle of Vienna in 1683. The monument of the king on horse is in itself quite picturesque, but not really worth a special visit.
