“A contribution to fallen servicemen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Did you serve...? Then you should pay tribute to the fallen servicemen and the honor guard standing post at the tomb of the unknown soldier. - It is allowed to take pictures, but considered polite to point with your finger at your camera, and look at one of the soldiers. He will nod, and signal his consent...

“History closed in stone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

The Tomb is situated under the remaining arcade of Saxon Palace in which the code to German encrypting machine Enigma was broken for the first time. The palace was destroyed by Germans after the Warsaw Uprising in 1944, thus the Tomb itself has its symbolism underlined by the will to survive and never give up by Polish nation.
Try to come on Sunday before noon, then you will have a chance to see official guard change that is very impressive.

“Nice part of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The tomb is not exciting but, as most, it is a nice tribute to the Polish military and all those who have served.

“Very Special.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

There are two soldiers there around the clock. They were like the guards in London. They stood motionless the park was beautiful but it was during a terrible snow storm so we could
not enjoy it as much as if the weather was better.
