A moving monument

It's a bit odd seeing so many people taking selfies and pictures next to such a sombre monument. Two soldiers stand, guarding the tomb. It's a beautiful monument.

Situated centrally, close to old town (you can walk). You can see the tomb that is situated inside the remaining ruins of the saxon palace, that used to be in that place. At night, the tomb and square is lightened, recommended view. The guard changes each hour.

This is a must see for me. We arrived just as the changing of the guard took place. A simple but solemn process. The number of Poles who died for the country is vast and this places holds a special meaning for the country and as such it is worth paying your respects here too.

We had the chance to visit the tomb during the changing of the guards and it was a moving experience. It also was an eye-opener about the tribute paid by Poland during several wars over last centuries.

We approached this monument from the rear and I had no idea that it was there. I was very moved by the respect that the monument was shown by the Polish Army and the sentiment that it holds. So glad that I came across it by accident.

By sheer luck we arrived just as the changing of the guard started so we got to see the full parade. The fact that the sun was quite low and it wasn't overly busy that day just added to the impact of it all. Definitely pay this monument a visit.

Was lucky to arrive one minute before (what looked like), an official state visit so cue lots of marching, wreath laying, bugling and security. The monument itself is small and a bit understated when compared with other monuments in Warsaw

Situated in a large open space. We were lucky there was a military parade there on that day. It kept clean and well preserved

To a tourist it's just a monument and by no means a must-see, but to many Polish people it's a hugely important place.
