Warsaw, Poland is a fascinating city with hundreds of monuments and statues scattered across the city. The 33 foot tall monument Pomnik Powstania Warszawskiego (Warsaw Uprising Monument) Located in front of the Supreme Court of Poland Building in Krasiński Square is a remarkable monument dedicated to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising against the Nazis. This bronze monument sculpted by Wincenty Kućma and architect Jacek Budynby is divided into two different parts. One section displays a group of fighters engaged in combat, running from a collapsing building. The second part of this monument reflects individuals descending into a manhole. The utility access hole led to the Warsaw sewer system and was utilized to evacuate fighters from the “Old Town” to the City Center during World War II. This memorial dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising, was constructed in the Socialist Realism style commonly found in the Soviet era of Poland. This monument is impressive and reflects the fighting sprit of the Polish people and the desire for freedom. A remarkable monument that should be seen by all.

We had an excellent guide who described the circumstance when this uprising took place. How while the Nazis with their superior numbers and modern armaments were decimating the poorly equipped resistance fighters, the Soviet army camped across the Vistula River watching the massacre unfold. Very confronting history reflecting the spirit of the Polish people. A must visit site when in Warsaw.

Dramatic monument commemorating the 63-day Polish Uprising against the German Nazis in 1944. After crushing the uprising, the Germans went on to obliterate nearly the entire city of Warsaw. During the uprising, the Soviet army that had reached near to Warsaw did nothing to help the Polish resistance fighters and therefore suppressed any commemoration of the uprising during the post-War Soviet block era.
The monument was unveiled in 1989 as the Soviet empire was crumbling.

Humbling momument to the Polish people. Massive bronze statues that need to be seen to be believed. A definite must see for some somber and quite relfection.

What a respectful, wonderful monument in complete respect the the heroism of the Powstanie, their actions were very important for the country and the entire world. 63 days of absolute heroism to fight, till they had nothing left, and had no more to give. Sold out by Russia, Germany and the so called Allies!

Impressive bronze sculpture which portrays the protagonists of the sad and recent past of the city of Warsaw.

Like almost everything in this city deeply touched the soul and sensitivity of the visitor.

Not in the city center, before the Supreme Court of the Republic of Poland, symbolically building of glass engraved with the main judgments on massive columns. Definitely worth a visit! @gargio76

This dramatic, large scale monument is beautifully sculpted and stands out well against the blue coloured glass and frontage of surrounding buildings. A serious statue commemorating the events of the 1944 Uprising - the Warsaw Uprising Museum is an essential visit while in Warsaw, just a brilliant museum.

Very interesting statues, in fact, two different monuments which represent the suffering of Poles during the Uprising in August-September 1944. Close to the Old Town, highly recommended.
