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... More

This monument is located on the north of the city and outskirt of Old town ( northwest). This memorial is located in front of the Supreme Court of Poland.

A beautiful monument to the bave people who fought for what was right, and what they believed in. Worth seeing, and its only 5 minutes walk from the old town square.

Really thought-provoking memorial. The statues themselves really capture the essence of the uprising and the bloodshed it involved. Absolutely worth going to view it.

This monument is interesting but sad at the same time. Depicts statues with rifles. All war is regrettable but sacrifice must not be forgotten.

Lots of history behind this great monument, relating to the 1944 Warsaw uprising. Great information on the uprising from the free walking tour, which meets at the castle in the old town.

The Warsaw Uprising is one of the most heatedly discussed events of WWII. Many Poles regard it as an example of heroism but many think it was a ridiculously ill-judged political decision leading to a loss of lives of thusands of young men and women. The monument itself is quite imposing, but is not very different from other structures of... More

An amazing chapter in world history, private citizens of a city organized and with almost bare hands attacked the occupants. The effect of surprise initially worked but later they were crushed by the huge Nazi machine and the city was completely destroyed.... More

The Polish people are rightly proud of their uprising against their German occupiers. This monument is a glorious depiction of the uprising and has the benefit of having cool Soviet-era looks. It's a great example of the Brutalist style. It was unveiled in 1989 despite its Russian style. It was sculpted by Wincenty Kućma and the architect was Jacek Budyn.... More
