Mauzoleum generała Bema Tarnów

General Bem’s Mausoleum Tarnów

Cztery wysokie kolumny, a nad nimi kamienny sarkofag. Całość umieszczona jest na wyspie na niewielkim jeziorze w parku.
General Józef Bem, the national hero of Poland and Hungary, was born and ultimately laid to rest in Tarnów. He died on December 10, 1850 in Aleppo, Syria, and was buried at a local cemetery.
It was not until 1929 that his ashes were ceremonially brought back to Poland and placed in an imposing Mausoleum in Strzelecki Park, Tarnów. The sarcophagus was designed by widely recognized architect, Adolf Szyszko-Bohusz of Kraków.
