  Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
by AcornMan
 
 

Poland's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was constructed in 1925 beneath the arcades of the 17th-century Saxon Palace, a huge and majestic structure in Pilsudski Square. When the Nazis blew up the palace in 1944, amazingly, the only part of the building to survive was the fragment standing directly over the tomb. The surviving fragment has been repaired and today stands over the tomb, its sheared-off edges and columns still visible. The tomb includes an eternal flame and is guarded at all times by two soldiers.

Address: Plac Pilsudskiego
Directions: Located on the eastern edge of Saxon Gardens.
