Very nice free spot which is the grave of all the Polish unknown soldiers. 2 soldiers are on constant duty. Ps: Do not to walk on the black bricks inside the grave! The soldiers will tell to stop.
This is a stunning memorial to those soldiers who lost their lives in World War II and is guarded 24/7 by two soldiers. It's OK to stop by to read the signs and take photos as long as you are respectful. In the evening, it's really just gorgeous.
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is located in Piłsudski Square and it’s 10 minutes walking distance from the main Old Town square of Warsaw, Sigismund's Column for example. You can also have access to it walking through Saxon Garden, actually is what we did. The Tomb is a beautiful monument dedicated to the unknown soldiers who have given their lives for Poland and according Wikipedia is the only surviving part of the Saxon Palace that occupied the spot until World War II. The place is nicely decorated with flowers, there is a eternal flame and we waited a little and we could see the changing of the guard that takes place on the hour of every hour daily and this happens 365 days a year. Eli: 4 / Serge: 4 Recommended: Yes, it’s a really beautiful and historical place to visit in Warsaw.
A lovely memorial to the fallen heros of Poland. They have a changing of the guard ceremony several times per day (it's probably hourly but I'm not sure). Nearby is a park with a large fountain. Also nearby is a marker attesting to a speech by John Paul II.
A great spot to visit for free and snap a few pics of. Military/History buffs will definitely appreciate visiting the tomb of the unknown soldiers!
