The Tomb of Unknown Soldier, Warsaw: 29 reviews and 57 photos
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier stands in a huge shiny paved square. It was said that fortune smiled during the dark years of WWll when parts of the then Saski Palace were retreaved from the rubble and later used to build the tomb. After reading the battle honours listing all the places Polish Soldiers had fought and gazing on the eternal flame, we sat in the sunshine marvelling at the young Polish Soldiers standing to perfect attention despite many cameras clicking into their faces. After a short while the soldiers stamped their metal capped boots and marched slowly in opposite directions around the outside of the tomb before returning to their very special duty. I don't think I will ever forget the sound of the metal capped boots on the tiles or the magnificent sight of the two soldiers.
Address: Plac Pilsudskiego
