So sad, the events that took place still have a solemn effect on the city. This is a beautiful monument and should be respected.

Walked from the Bristol hotel to the Tomb in 10 min and then went for a stroll in the park around. This is an emotial place knowing all the history of Warsaw and of that location during WW2. I admire the soldiers staying still in the cold!

Definitely see. It is always guarded in a very respectful way. It sits in an easily accessible wide open space not far from the Old Town. A good place to reflect on a country that has had more than its fair share of conflicts. And bears them well.

If you have the chance, see the guards performing the patrol around the place. It looks a little like the Changing of the Guard, that we can see in some castles. Also, don't miss the chance of going to the Saxon Garden right behind it. It's magnificent!

Not so much to see actually but you will pass by if you visit the Saxon gardens or pass by to enter the old town.

On our way from old town to centrala station, we arrived right on time to see the guard exchange . New team arrived, following the lighted line, then they proceeded to the ritual. Nice moment in nice place, lighted only by the permanent fire arround the unknown soldier.

You have to go there to see the change of the soldiers. Really very nice and even the kids usually enjoy it.

This incredible spot is guarded night and day by Polish Soldiers. It is all that remains of the once grand Saski Palace. It is one of the most patriotic spots in Warsaw. It's part of the beautiful Saxon Park. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was erected in the palace in 1925. After the palace was destroyed in 1944 during... More
