Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters, Warsaw

#14 of 562 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.

  • I found this monument truly touching, both for what it means in reference to the tragedies of the 20th century, and for the original dislocation of the statues.

  • A touching experience, but heavy. Wouldn't recommend doing it early in the morning as it might make the rest of your day difficult. Wear comfortable shoes, as the floors are all hard.
  • A well suited and we'll deserved monument for the fallen. A beautiful tribute in the form of an amazing monument. It truly describes the hardship and the struggle to bring Poland out of tyranny.
