Established after Great War (as in many countries) in central arcade of classicist palace. Meant to commemorate fallen soldiers from 1944 commemorates fallen city as well. There is no Saxon Palace anymore and vast empty space surrounding the remaining arches make them speak for city's death during and after 1944 uprising. And in the same time - with green background...

We went to see this on the Sunday 12.00 this worked out very well for us as this is when they change the guards with a full military process and was very professional and interesting. they change the guards every hour but we were told Sunday 1200 was the most extensive. Interesting history if you read the plaque.

The Plac Pilsudskiego has the Tomb and the guards, and just behind it is the most stunning park in summertime with beautiful fountains and flower beds and just a beautiful spot

This monument is just outside the center of the city and has a huge square to walk across before seeing the actual monument but it is all about the build up. Great to visit.

There were visitors from the Government commemorating the Poles that were involved in the many wars in Poland. The changing of the guard makes all tourists stop for a moment. and take a moment to reflect.

This is one of the unexpected monument that has left its mark on me. The live guard on site makes it very real and present.

It is moving just standing there and looking. How on earth the two guards stand so still I will never know. It was freezing so I was hopping from foot to foot to keep warm while they stood as if they were carved from rock.

This is a sobering monument to the many Polish soldiers killed during various wars, not least the Second World War. The monument is all that remains of a much building that stood here: the Saxon Palace. There are many bullet holes in the walls, a chilling reminder of the violence that caused the palace's destruction. It's definitely worth it to... More
