On the 12 July 2008, on Saturday, the celebration of unveiling the monument of the Imperial and Royal Good Soldier Švejk, sitting on the ammunition box, took place. The monument was made by a sculptor of Przemyśl origin, Jacek Szpak. The casting of the figure was supervised by a well-known Przemyśl bell-founder Janusz Felczyński. After many years of efforts, Švejk finally sat in the Main Square in Przemyśl with his favorite beer-mug and a pipe.
