  The Tomb of Unknown Soldier
by PolishChick

Poland is a country with a history. We`ve been attacked since our beginning thanks to our "very fortunate" location between the 2 countries that had never really seemed to like each other- Russia and Germany. The place in between the Eastern and Western Europe wasn`t the smartest choice and we have felt it on our own skin through centuries. We`ve been getting our butts kicked, been parted, tortured and killed- but never forgotten who we really are- that we`re Poles. The Tomb of Unknown Soldier is a very important place in Warsaw- it is a tomb with soil from all the battlefields on which the Polish men fought for their freedom and independence. Soldiers guard it day and night, 24/7, in heat, rain and cold. There are big celebrations at the Tomb on our national holidays- aspecially on November 11th, which is our Independence Day. The people of Warsaw, the President and many important people come to pay tribute to those brave men and put red and white flowers all over the place. You shouldn`t miss this place- it is very important. After you see it you can take a walk through the Saski park in the back of the Tomb- you will see a beautiful fountain, many sculptures and art pieces. Have a rest and enjoy!

Address: Plac Pilsudskiego
Directions: It`s really close to the center- you can take a walk from either Ratusz or Swietokrzyska metro station, or get there by tram- number 35 for example.
