The square where its located says a lot about it pilsudki square, adolfhitlerplatz and now freedom square. This is the square where Pope John Paul gave his sermon in 1979, a speech of hope against the communists. The tomb contains the remains of a solider from the 1920 war with the russians. On the tomb you see the names of... More

This one brought tears to my eyes. An absolute must if in Warsaw. It is in a field so you can choose how long you would like to spend there.

In an attempt to find the old town I stumbled upon this monument just as they were changing the guard. A respectful and dignified way to honour. I'm unsure as to how often they change the guard so perhaps Google it before you go, it's quite a sight to see.

two guards stand each side of the tomb and there is a constant fire burning in an urn at the tombs head. Names on the four pillars, which I think are of dead soldiers. We passed on the bus at night one evening and it was all lit up. I was hoping to hear the bugle play that I had... More

Visited late in the evening when the guard changed. It is the central focus of a huge square near the Royal Route, broadly running west from the hotel Bristol a few minutes away. The square also contains a cross built for the visit of Pope John Paul II. Another sobering reminder of Poland's tragic history.

A moving place, we managed to time the visit to see the changing of the guard and observe the mark of respect as the changed and old guard march back to the barracks. A moving memorial and very informative.

A very moving place, we just missed the changing of the guard but saw the old guard marching towards the barracks. It was great to see such a place and reading the story about the un named soldier. Well worth a visit.

Stayed at the Sofitel Warsaw, overlooking the tomb. Watched the change of the guard a few times from our room. Came here at the beginning of December and the guards were stood deadly still for hours, next the the open flames. The tomb itself and the surrounding 'square' and park are spotless.

Free to visit and in a public place. Easy to get to, however you are getting there. Situated in a large park. Visited it after dark and it was beautifully lit up with the eternal flame burning brightly. Guarded by two armed soldiers who in turn appeared to be guarded by armed police. ( Probably a sign of the times... More
