Nice memorial in a nice park. May be interesting if your guide explains the history of the memorial and its architecture. Otherwise, don't need to rush to see it.

It just drives me up the wall when I see Asian people touch soldiers. Have some respect. Take your photos from a distance, but don't touch them. Other than that, the attraction is amazing. Great respect to military regardless of country.

Maybe it's not the most wonderful place in Warsaw but it should be seen just to give you an idea what happen in Poland during both WW.

The original Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was designed here in 1925 in the arches of the colonnade of the Saxon Palace. There were ashes of unknowns as well as urns filled with soil from every WW I battlefield. When the Germans destroyed the palace after the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, only the part of the colonnade that protected these... More

The word 'impressive' is the only word fitting for the monument and the surrounding park, square, everything. It's a little unfortunate that the are is surrounded by modern buildings, taking away a bit of the 'old' feeling you get when walking around in the park itself or look at the monument. In any other perspective this monument remains an impressive... More

There is just the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, short stop. I was hoping for guards or changing of guards or a wreath presentation but there was nothing. Showed our respects, quick stop

You'll be in this area if visiting Central Warsaw so definitely worth going to see the tomb; with uniformed guards on constant watch, it's definitely a stark reminder of the sacrifices of Poles with some of the most (in)famous battles of recent European history etched into it. The arches themselves are an attractive remnant of an old palace, but it's... More

The tomb of the unknown soldier sits in an ornate arched colonnade which was once a part of a much larger palace. The monument is in Saxon Park just 300m off the Royal Road (Krakowskie Przedmiescie) as it passes in front of the President's Palace. The original palace was built in the 17th C and an unknown soldier from the... More

If you're walking the royal route, take a moment to detour to this monument. The tomb is guarded by two military men in full uniform and the changing of the guard happens every hour on the hour. It's worth the time to pay your respects.

You pass by this monument and take in the names. It is a reminder of the 20th century Polish experience.
