A moving place, we managed to time the visit to see the changing of the guard and observe the mark of respect as the changed and old guard march back to the barracks. A moving memorial and very informative.

A very moving place, we just missed the changing of the guard but saw the old guard marching towards the barracks. It was great to see such a place and reading the story about the un named soldier. Well worth a visit.

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.

Free to visit and in a public place. Easy to get to, however you are getting there. Situated in a large park. Visited it after dark and it was beautifully lit up with the eternal flame burning brightly. Guarded by two armed soldiers who in turn appeared to be guarded by armed police. ( Probably a sign of the times... More

Been here many times, both with the kids and without. Changing of the Guard is worth a watch, only takes a few minutes but the kids will enjoy walking like the soldiers across the square.

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. However, I easly fell in love with the place and could not resist to visit it twice during our two day visit in Warsaw. Here you can find a moving tribute and park with something really special about its atmosphere. Perfect for... More
