So this is a tomb to the Unknown Soldier and also a monument to the destroyed city. It is modest but... More

Arrive 5 minutes before the hour and watch the ceremony as the guard changes. The flame burns eternally and the watch is continuous. Behind the tomb there are beautiful gardens and fountains. A...

I have seen many tombs and this one is impressive because of its almost "house-like" style, guarded by 2 soldiers and set in front of a nice park. All panels which are easy to read, list the places where Polish soldiers fought over the centuries. It is really a pity that the large square leading to the monument is surrounded... More

We visited the memorial a few times to pay respect to the resting place of the Unknown Soldier. It was wonderful to see the changing of the guard every hour.

Very simple and yet dignified tomb with Polish guards at attention. Well worth walking though the park to pay respect.

A must do and see, with the Changing of the Guard. It's great to see a People and a City putting in such care and effort, to such memorials. An eternal flame burns with an ever present military guard, in the impressive 'Pilsudski Square'' and with the beautiful 'Saski Park' in the background
