Changing of the guards occurs at the top of each hour, which adds one more reason to visit this spot. Looks particularly well-lit at dusk.

A tribute to fallen soldiers ...reflective and appropriate. A quiet place for contemplation and prayer.

The tomb is easy to get to and the line was not very long to get to the monument. We visited at night and it was not crowded and the tomb was lit beautifully.

A large square leads to the memorial space for the tomb of an unknown soldier who died in various conflicts. Honorary guard stands watch. A must visit place on your walking tour of Warsaw.

Humbled by the strength of the Polish people. Tourists should know, that this monument was ruined, and it was part of Saski Palace, destroyed by the Nazi soldiers in 1944. Absolute respect to the miraculous people who were heroes, and helped make Poland what is is today!

Classy memorial with much detail. Somber and interesting. Located at an entrance to a park which adds to the simple point of respect.
