Evocative monument to the unknown soldier proceeds under the arches of the portico of the old building that once stood in the plaza whose gardens are now the Saxons gardens. Do not miss the changing of the guard with its gear and small ceremony. @gargio76

Heart of Warsaw and ceremonial park of the tomb of the unknown soldier in Warsaw. Simple changing of the guard at hours that are prescribed. Gardens behind the monument worth a look

This is nothing very special, but of course as a monument honoring the WWII victims it's very important and reminds us of honor, braveness but also insanity of war.

Tribute paid for all the polish soldgers that died in wars. It is a beatiful monument and a very interesting architecture. This is visible mostly at night. At night you will also figure the metaforical meaning of the asembly. Take a look at dark from the ceoss at the other end of the square

If you know a little bit more than average about the history of Poland or particularly Warsaw, this is one of the top places to visit and imagine how this place looked like before the war, and what happened with all people lost in numerous battles commemorated on the pillars of the monument. Nice to see the change of the... More

This monument is found on the large Pilsudski Square, which is used for various formal and ceremonial occasions. Pope John Paul said mass here on his visits to his homeland. Behind lies the Saxon garden. The actual structure is the remnant of the Saxon Palace built between 1661 and 1748 and blown up by the Nazis in 1944. It contains... More
