This is a symbolic tomb commemorating the nameless who fell in battle while fighting for Poland’s freedom. The tomb is situated under the arched arcade of the Saski Palace which was destroyed during World War II. Ashes of the Unknown Soldier were laid here in 1925 – buried here are the remains of
a defender of Lwów from the Lyczakowski Cemetery, as well as an urn filled with soil from World War I battlefields. The Saski Palace (Fryderyk Chopin’s family’s first home in Warsaw) was destroyed in 1944, the ruined remnants of the arched arcade and the tomb all that remain. Now, the tomb contains urns
from every 20th century battlefield where Polish troops fell in battle. An eternal flame burns by the tomb, watched over by a military honour guard.
Every hour the guard changes whereas the ceremony of solemn changing takes place on Sundays at 12:00 noon.
