Reviewed November 25, 2013

Nothing could be more apt for this military cemetery. It has to be one of the most impressive military cemeteries in the world.

“The road to freedom is lined with white crosses”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nothing could be more apt for this military cemetery. It has to be one of the most impressive military cemeteries in the world. Here lie freedom fighters from the uprising of 1863 all the way to fallen of WW2 1939 - 45, including a section for those who fell fighting in the West (I special significance to my family).

“Interesting place to take a stroll.”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This cemetary is well worth a look around to get a feeling of Poland's past. The graves a relatively well kept, if a little crammed together.

Doing a little research before/having a bit better knowledge of famous dead Polish people would have made the visit more historically interesting but it was still worth it with out that.

If you don't want to walk out there the bus 180 connects the cemetary with Nowt Swiat/city centre and the same bus stops at the Jewish cemetary too.

We came at the wrong time, but I imagine that if you visit on 1/2/3 November it'd be fascinating.

“So fascinating”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

It is a bit out of the way, but what a fascinating cemetery. The gravestones are wonderful to look at and so varied, from old classical statues to some very modern pieces. We had a private tour guide for the day and asked to see the cemetery so we had some insights that you might only get if you had a guidebook with you.

“Do you want to get a glimpse into the Polish soul? Do go there...”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Visiting a cemetery is not everyone's idea of perfect sightseeing, but for Warsaw, which has had so little of historic significance preserved through WWII, this place is unreal. A genuine who is who of Polish politics and culture, it is actually more scenic and equally impressive as Père-Lachaise in Paris.
