The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is striking and beautiful. It is a very somber and moving experience to see it and think of the countless men and women who gave their lives for freedom. It is easy to get to from almost any part of the City. In my opinion the Tomb is not a tourist site, but a... More

It's a quintessential tomb of the unknown soldier, guarded by two soldiers. Respectful. Dignified. Simple. Moving. You don't have to be Polish to appreciate the sacrifice made by this soldier and many, many others.

This is a small memorial with changing of the guards every hour and an eternal light flame. It is the only part remaining of a large "castle" that was destroyed by the Nazis when they destroyed 80% of Warsaw in WWII.

We visited both day and night time as it was close to our hotel. Make sure you read the information boards to realize what a struggle the Polish People had to put up just to get this monument erected.....and re erected! No wonder it has an armed guard loyally defending it. Go at 10 am and see the changing of... More

Very impressive -- not only was the tomb beautiful and respectful but the plaques around it give you a real sense of the painful history of Poland -- battles going back to the 900s are represented.
