I walked by this monument a few different times on my visit and always stopped to look. I did get a little confused though because the monument is NOT by the uprising museum at all!

The Monument is best visited at night when the lighting makes it even more dramatic. It is situated on the Western edge of the old town, opposite the cathedral. It is not particularly well sign-posted.

The Polish nation was the only one who stood up in the name of freedom against two fronts of enemy, the Nazis and the Stalinist Soviets. No other nation showed the same amount of courage, commitment, determination to not only defend its own borders, but stop the evil Nazis destroying their homeland only to be left to defend themselves, while...

I thought I knew a lot about World War II and Warsaw's history, but realized at this monument that I actually knew very little about the Polish struggle against the German conquerors. Fortunately, we had a guide who filled us in, and later I read up on the subject. Who knew that 150,000 to 200,000 Polish civilians were massacred in... More

This is part of a Justice Complex and is worth 10 minutes of your time. The detail on the monument is fantastic. It really brings it home.

Huge monument, portraying the struggle of the uprising. Spent about 10-15 minutes looking at it, walking round and seeing it from different angles. There is an information board on the corner of the square on a building, giving you facts and figures about the uprising. Very thought provoking. It is situated a short walk from the Old Town, off a... More

Take the time to learn about the Poles' struggle for freedom from oppressors, help yourself appreciate your own liberties

The Warsaw Uprising Monument is huge. Absolutely HUGE. You cannot miss it. It has multiple tableaus, with representations of fighters as well as Polish citizens and even a priest. One of the aspects I found most striking was the fighter coming up from a sewer manhole. It is one of the things discussed in everything I've read about the Warsaw... More
