    Kosciuszkowcow Monument

    Favorite thing: Warsaw is packed with monuments, memorials and commemorative plaques relating to World War II.

    The most famous ones are the Warsaw Uprising Monument and the Umschlagplatz Monument, but there are many lesser known places all around the town. Just keep your eyes open when wandering around the city.

    Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

    Favorite thing: There are many monuments and statues throughout the city, but I rather like the Tomb of the Unknown soldier. The tomb rests under several pillars which are the remnants of an old king's palace which was bombed during the war. These remnants are all that is left. Rather than trying to rebuild yet another building, it was decided to place the unknown soldier here. There is a park behind it...the old palace gardens. There is a large open space in front of it which separates it from the surrounding area. Excellent for special occasions, parading, or the crowds that gathered on August 1 for the commemoration of the Warsaw Uprising.
    I hope you will visit my Travelogue telling the story of the August 1 holiday and the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    Fondest memory: The statue of Copernicus located in front of The Staszic Palace which is the seat of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
