If you are nearby you should definitely pay a visit to the tomb of the unknown solidier. It's a way to pay respect to the persons who have been fighting for their country and paid the highest possible price for it. It is guarded by two soldiers.

I found this memorial to the unknown soldier very humbling. The fact that the tomb is guarded 24 hours a day by 2 armed soldiers, changing guard after an hour or 25 minutes if its really cold, shows the importance & respect that this country has for those who fought during all the turmoil that Poland has gone through over...

This tomb is a monument dedicated to the unknown soldiers who gave it all for Poland and were erected after World War I. This tomb is constantly lit by an eternal flame and assisted by a guard post by the Representative battalion of the Polish Army.

Walked past by accident and even in -9 temperature soldiers were still at attention at the tomb. Its very nicely laid out and is a credit to Poland who still retain the traditiion

Passed this when walking to Old Town from The Uprising Museum. A cold winter morning though still plenty of people. A nice spot in the park to contemplate before heading to the Chopin Museum or Old Town 5-10 minutes walk away.

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???
