Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters, Warsaw

4.4
#15 of 257 in Things to do in Warsaw
With one of the highest number of visitors in the city, Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters pays tribute to the brave souls who fell in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. The bronze statuary that makes up the monument is divided into parts--or what look like scenes--of resistance fighters in combat. One depicts resisters climbing out of a sewer manhole that served as a route from the ghetto to German-occupied territory. The layout was created by sculptor Wincenty Kućma and architect Jacek Budyn. You'll find the attraction on the southern side of Krasiński Square in the center of town.

    The monument speaks for itself and should be on any visitor's list - also if your way the event character is missing. Some however generate these Selfies or "Family photos" on the monument. This is not to change, works for me however more than strange. I scan with my phone (sic!) very much in the Selfiemodus. But reverent feel should play in a role.

    Beautiful statue. We come along during our tour about Jews in Warsaw from the beginning until now really fun and this is a beautiful statue during the tour.

    One of the many places in the capital, reminiscent of the Uprising. It is worth a little bit of reading, and during trips to Warsaw a good look around for places after this tragic event. Glory Bochaterom!

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
