Lovely spot. It was freezing cold when we saw it and there were 2 soldiers stood guarding it. We couldn't help wonder how they kept warm as they stood still all the time and how long do any pair stand in the minus temperatures guarding this monument???

it looks much like other monuments for the unknown soldier but it is not.the soldiers who guard it are impressing and the whole structure is deeply moving.

Worth a visit, just to think about the past. Two soldiers stand on duty. Candles lit, a few flowers.

We saw this place the night we arrived. But we had a chance to learn the story of it during a free walking tour. Also we witnessed to a ceremony between two countries at this place.

Easy to forget to visit this square. Still worth to visit. Impressive, especially when cold and windy.

We visited the site (which is on one end of Pilsudski Square and bordering Saxon Gardens park) on a freezing cold day, and there were still several people there to view it. The memorial itself is fairly standard for Tombs of the Unknown, with soldiers standing guard and an eternal flame. There are also urns with soil from several battlefields... More
