Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters, Warsaw

(4.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
