Jozef Pilsudski is regarded as one of the most important heroes in Polish history. This was not always the case as he was portrayed by the communists as an ultra-conservative military, even a fascist. That propaganda didn't affect Pilsudski's popularity that much, portraits of him were often found in Polish homes, even during the communist era. Pilsudski was the head behind the movements leading to the independence of the new Polish Republic after WWI. He was not only the first head of Government of the Polish Republic, but also lead Poland to a victory after a Soviet invasion attempt in 1920, known as the ?Battle of Warsaw?. Pilsudski's monument was unveiled after the fall of communism in 1995.
Directions: At Pilsudski Square, south of the old town
