See one of Poland's significant World War I monuments, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Grob Nieznanego Zolnierza). The structure at the site features the remains of the old Saxon Palace, which has only been partially rebuilt and serves as a tomb. Soil from 24 battlefields has been added to urns inside the tomb. Although the majority of the memorial is dedicated to fallen soldiers from World War I, it hosts ceremonies commemorating unknown soldiers who have fallen in almost every war that Poland has fought over the years. An eternal flame burns at the tomb and a guard from the Polish army remains on watch to keep it ablaze. Many visitors leave flowers and tokens around the site as a tribute, and you can too, but be aware that these are removed regularly. The Virtuti Militari and Cross of Valor, two of Poland's highest military honors, are portrayed on steel gratings behind the memorial.

A perennial memory, fixed in the memory of a people as the poloaco that saw Germans and Russians, with the knowing look of the Western powers, divided his country and killed a large part of its population. The memory of the unknown soldier leads to Katyn, the pit where the Russians buried, after giving them a shot at the nape of the neck, more than 20,000 heads, officers and non-commissioned officers of the Polish Army. the memory of this monument, guarded by soldiers, is also intended to all intellectuals, and other citizens killed in the name of unreason.
