Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters, Warsaw

4.6
#15 of 469 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.

  • Set across the museum, careful crossing the street. Note the details of the equipment that the soldiers are wearing.
  • Monuments dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Great representation and respects to heroes.
  • The monument is dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Unveiled in 1989, it is located on the southern side of Krasiński Square. I would recommend using a tour guide to learn more about the monument, the history of Warsaw Uprising in 1944, and to tie this monument in with the many others scattered in the nearby vicinity. On its own it is an incredible story, a visit to the Warsaw Uprising Museum (again I recommend a guide) sheds incredible light on the meaning behind this monument. I will be back on a sunny day (it was raining when I went in July) to explore, take it in and shoot some better photos with my SLR instead of my cell phone. It's worth the visit to see a part of the history of WW2, and to know about the incredible courage of the Polish people in the face of adversity.
  • A must see. Brave people
  • Nice monument. Good to see when in Warsaw

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.
