This is a must see. Try and see it as dusk is falling and the light changes the aspect of the bronze figures.

It was bigger than we expected so certainly made an impact. Very moving to stand in the area and think about what it represented

We happened to be in Warsaw on August 1, which is the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising against Nazi rule. So we went over to the Uprising Monument (in Old Town), which is very moving and on this date in particular was covered with flowers and candles. At 5pm, the starting time of the uprising, a siren went off, church bells rang, and there was a moment of silence (supposedly all over Warsaw). It was a very moving experience, because it was a real grass-roots memorial service: no speeches, no politicians, just local people with tears in their eyes commemorating this proud moment in Polish history. One other thing: we had to smile because a contingent of Polish bikers lined up nearby contributed their loud motorcycle salute to the uprising. We were definitely lucky to have been in the right place at the right time. But don't miss this very moving monument, no matter when you're in Warsaw.

I have visited this place many times but i was there yesterday on anniversary of the uprising and the whole city stopped at 5pm and stood in silent memory.This statute captures the determination,solidarity and complete unity of a people man women and child to make their enemy fight to kill them as soldiers and not slaves.Its bold rugged look is softened my the many candles and floral tributes yet they dont detract from its powerful message.Unmissable and moving.

A great monument to a brave group of people who acted in a brave way during an extrordinary time in history. These brave souls suffered the consequences of there actions after it was all over, and it is just nice to go there and pay your respects to an incredibly brave group of people. A lovely monument well worth visiting
