Stayed at the Sofitel Warsaw, overlooking the tomb. Watched the change of the guard a few times from our room. Came here at the beginning of December and the guards were stood deadly still for hours, next the the open flames. The tomb itself and the surrounding 'square' and park are spotless.

We happened to see this while waiting for the modern art museum to open on a Sunday. It happened to be a special time to arrive as apart from the regular changing of the guard, there is a military ceremony every Sunday at midday where names of fallen soldiers are read out, accompanied by a bugler and drummer.

Originally we did not intend to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, but somehow ended up here.

Situated at the end of a very large square is the tomb guarded by 2 members of the Polish Armed Forces. There is a lovely walk through the park behind, very quiet and peaceful.
