“Beautiful because of its simplicity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

you only need 5 minutes to see this monument, guarded at all times by two soldiers. If you are lucky you can follow the change of the guard from the Presidential Palace to the Tomb for the exchange...a simple columned building, lisitng all the Polish Conflicts ( of which there are many ) moving because it is so simple and the bare ground all around adds to its charm

“Warsaw's Tomb of Unknown soldier”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

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.

“Night time visit is very moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

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 the guard.
