Nothing special to see it. Very small monument. The only thing that would make it interesting is the changing of the guards.

If it's not out of your way (which it will be if you are going from Central Station to Old City) do stop and admire it and its guards. If not, you are not losing out on something extra-ordinary.

Very well done for a military ceremonial by a very smart squad of soldiers. A military band was also present which made it very moving.

Sombre monument set on the edge of a quiet large park & only just off one of Warsaw's main roads. Two soldiers stand on guard & the changing of the guard is a tourist draw. Soil from all the modern battlefields involving Polish troups is held here. Worth reading up on it before you visit.

This monument is made to look monumental but it just looks tiny, sad and foolish. It is facing a huuuge area/sort of square completely empty which gives an impression of desolation. It seems that the only worth part is the regular changing of the guards which I did not see as I did not like the place and left earlier.

Centuries of European dictate the appropriateness for every country to commemorate those soldiers who gave their lives to defend or ensure the freedom of their fellow citizens. Poland has been overrun so often in our lifetime, that one has to be reminded that this has been going on centuries.

I just happened to stumble upon on the Tomb of the Unknown Solider and was blown away. There were gorgeous flowers and two standing guards next to the tomb under an opening. They didn't mind if tourists took photos.

This is one of those areas in Warsaw that I think cannot be missed. It's of high historical importance, is beautifully kept and in a convenient location from the old town. Would recommend coming here just as the sun is setting. There is also a beautiful park just behind it.

This memorial to the war dead is slightly off the beaten track & you may not come across it unless by accident. It is good for photo opportunities & is guarded by Polish soldiers on a permanent basis. It is quite small in size by powerful none the less.
