This is more than a tomb, it is a memorial. It is guarded by soldiers and at regular intervals the guards change in a handing over ceremony. The fallen in various battles are remembered.It is very moving.

Came across this as it was close to my hotel. Worth checking it out. No money to be paid just read the history written in several languages on the monument outside. Guards stand by on the inside .

Situated next to the Saxonian garden, and at a 10 minutes walking distance from the old town center, this grave is a beautiful & serene reminder of the costs of Polish freedom. The soldiers guarding the grave and the flame next to the grave are impressive. Make sure to respect the tomb and do not try to enter it.

Just like the American version. The feeling of gratefulness and appreciation is grand here. The Soldiers are doing a tremendous honorable duty. My respect to them and their memorial.

How can anyone miss this, especially when visiting Warsaw. Once around the Castle area, this is about 15 min walking distance and worth a visit

A glimpse of the bloody past that has dogged Poland. Lovely hourly guard change, on the hour, night and day. It lists the various battles down the centuries and the eternal flame. Don't make the mistake we did and try to enter the building, that is a big 'No-no!'

Poland's dedication to remembering all of those who have lost their lives in war is epitomised in the care and respect that is bestowed at this monument. Others have said it: the guards change every hour on the hour, the replacements marching from the Presidential Palace, across the square and up to the tomb, where they swap and the soldiers... More

Established after Great War (as in many countries) in central arcade of classicist palace. Meant to commemorate fallen soldiers from 1944 commemorates fallen city as well. There is no Saxon Palace anymore and vast empty space surrounding the remaining arches make them speak for city's death during and after 1944 uprising. And in the same time - with green background...

We went to see this on the Sunday 12.00 this worked out very well for us as this is when they change the guards with a full military process and was very professional and interesting. they change the guards every hour but we were told Sunday 1200 was the most extensive. Interesting history if you read the plaque.

The Plac Pilsudskiego has the Tomb and the guards, and just behind it is the most stunning park in summertime with beautiful fountains and flower beds and just a beautiful spot
