Warsaw Things to Do: 1,447 reviews and 3,028 photos
The Bunker monument marks the spot where the leaders of the Warsaw uprising were discovered. Although it is commonly believed to be the last bunker to be discovered, it is only one of many which were destroyed on May 8th 1943. Fighting continued on other sites until May 16th. The stones have the names of the fighters of the Mila 18 bunker inscribed and state that this was the burial place of the leader, Mordechaj Anielewicz. That statement was never confirmed as it is still not clear what happened to the body of Anielewicz.
Today, the designations of the buildings at Mila street have slightly changed. Therefore, today's Mila 18 is not on the spot. However, the monument is and is hard to miss once you are in Mila street.
Address: Ulica Mila (though not 18 anymore)
Directions: At Mila Street (Ulica Mila), close to the monument to the Heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising
