I just happened to stumble upon on the Tomb of the Unknown Solider and was blown away. There were gorgeous flowers and two standing guards next to the tomb under an opening. They didn't mind if tourists took photos.
This is one of those areas in Warsaw that I think cannot be missed. It's of high historical importance, is beautifully kept and in a convenient location from the old town. Would recommend coming here just as the sun is setting. There is also a beautiful park just behind it.
This memorial to the war dead is slightly off the beaten track & you may not come across it unless by accident. It is good for photo opportunities & is guarded by Polish soldiers on a permanent basis. It is quite small in size by powerful none the less.
This whole location is lovely, with a pleasant park and square.
The Tomb is not over-stated and that adds to the solemnity.
The guards are on formal display and there is a solemn atmosphere respected by the locals and most visitors.
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the main changing of the guard at 12 noon.
When the weather is quite nice. As for the square next to it is a lot of room and space. Good place for special events.One of the symbols of the city of Warsaw and the pride of the Polish nation. The full hours worth paying attention...
Warsaw has no shortage of monuments and statues dotted around the city but this one is particularly good. Guarded by two soldiers it commemorates the Polish soldiers who have lost their lives through the several wars Poland has been involved in. Well presented and a must see for any visitors to the city
This memorial is very solemn as it is a memorial for the dead Polish veterans. It is however beautiful and very moving especially when there is the changing of the guards. Guards parade across the street from their barracks and then replace the current soldiers in a stoic but moving ceremony! Highly recommend.
