There were visitors from the Government commemorating the Poles that were involved in the many wars in Poland. The changing of the guard makes all tourists stop for a moment. and take a moment to reflect.

This is one of the unexpected monument that has left its mark on me. The live guard on site makes it very real and present.

It is moving just standing there and looking. How on earth the two guards stand so still I will never know. It was freezing so I was hopping from foot to foot to keep warm while they stood as if they were carved from rock.

This is a sobering monument to the many Polish soldiers killed during various wars, not least the Second World War. The monument is all that remains of a much building that stood here: the Saxon Palace. There are many bullet holes in the walls, a chilling reminder of the violence that caused the palace's destruction. It's definitely worth it to... More

Loved this touching monument to all the unknown soldiers who have fought for Poland, located in the only part of the Saxon Palace that remains after the Nazi's blew it up during the war. Lovely tomb, guarded at all times by armed guards, which change hourly. Well worth a visit.

Well worth the visit and truly makes you think about what it portrays. Lovely touch with the guards in the old uniform. We were fortunate to be there at the changing over of the guards. Lovely to see.

Amazing history of this place with polish soldiers graves from all battle fields around the world. It was destroyed during World War II by nazists. The place is so important for Poles like Arlington Cemetery for Americans.

I went for a run from my hotel and ended up running through the park next to this memorial. It was just about dark and the sigh of the memorial lit internally with two soldiers marching inside the memorial and doing an "about turn" caught my eye. Saying that, shard of light stretching away between the paving slabs was eye... More

It is important to visit this site when the guards are changing. At last they have also installed a series of multi-lingual plaques explaining why the tomb is where it is, what used to be there, who is in it etc.
