Monument dedicated to the soldiers lost in WW2. A must see, the flaming monument is constantly guarded by two guards surrounded by pillars that are the remainder of a destroyed building during the war.

I happened to be there for the changing of the guard at noon. I don't know how often that happens, but it was sort of cool to see that. Really, there is nothing too special here. But its a nice monument. The park right behind the tomb though is very beautiful and worth a visit and some time!

Enjoy the quiet dignity of the guarded monument. The monument is in a large square near the main park in downtown Warsaw. Two soldiers stand guard over the memorial and the eternal flame.

In the end of the old town you ll find this monument near the big park. Its an honor about the soldier who sacrified for Poland.

We were there during the anniversary of the Warsaw uprising and saw the tomb and the guard mounted. Much more impressive are the dozens of plaques around the city marking where executions of partisans, counter-attacks and refugee massacres took place. These are still memorialized 70 years later with candles and flowers placed on the sites which can be in alleyways,... More

I found this a thought provoking space, it is a relatively small feature but I feel this represents how it was ordinary men and boys who fought and fell, not those of sweeping, over-ornate marble palaces. The memorial is in a beautiful park by the fountain and the buildings around it are a blend of modern and historic - I... More

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
