Logo for a Historic Monument ("pomnik historii") in Poland

Historic Monument (Polish: pomnik historii) is one of several categories of objects of cultural heritage (in the singular, zabytek) in Poland.[1]

To be recognized as a Polish historic monument, an object must be declared such by the President of Poland.[1] The term "historic monument" was introduced into Polish law in 1990, and the first Historic Monuments were declared by President Lech Wałęsa in 1994.[2]


The National Heritage Board of Poland maintains the official list.[3]
