1. Under the Stag Mansion (Krakow Travel). "This mansion, sometimes referred to as Ludwikowska to honour its 16-century owners, housed the famous Under the Stag Inn where Johann Wolfgang Goethe stayed from 5 to 7 September 1790. The poet cum scientist accompanied the Count de Reden and the Duke of Saxony and Weimar on their travels. Their primary goal was the exploration of the mines of Silesia, yet the gentlemen also visited the salt mine in Wieliczka. Although they only used Kraków as a base camp, a commemoration stone recording the stay of the great poet in our city is mounted into the wall of the house." (Submitted on June 9, 2018.)

and nearly 3,000 drawings by him extant....Goethe had a great effect on the nineteenth century. In many respects, he was the originator of many ideas which later became widespread. He produced volumes of poetry, essays, criticism, a theory of colours and early work on evolution and linguistics.... His non-fiction writings, most of which are philosophic and aphoristic in nature, spurred the development of many thinkers, including Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Schopenhauer, Sřren Kierkegaard, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ernst Cassirer, Carl Jung, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Along with Schiller, he was one of the leading figures of Weimar Classicism. Schopenhauer cited Goethe's novel Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship as one of the four greatest novels ever written, along with Tristram Shandy, La Nouvelle Héloďse and Don Quixote."
