Tomb of the Unknown Soldier WarsawFree: All time

Located in Pilsudski Square, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is dedicated to the bravery of Polish soldiers during the First World War. It was erected in 1925 under a fragment of the portico, a single remaining feature of the old Saxon Palace. In the 18th century, sumptuous French style gardens were added to the Palace, before being redesigned in English-style in the 19th century., with nothing much left today except the central walk. Marching guards are a regular sight in the premise. However, the big ceremonial changing of the guard takes place every Sunday at noon.
