Honour the memory of the Insurgents and take part in official commemorations of the 75. anniversary of Warsaw Uprising

Every year Warsaw honours the Insurgents. Polish flags wave on the streets of Warsaw, candles burn at places sanctified by the blood of the fallen and those who were murdered, and concerts and sporting events are organised. Those who took part in the Uprising come from all over Poland and the farthest corners of the world to take part in commemorations.
Punctually at 5:00 PM, the time at which the Uprising broke out, alarm sirens are heard throughout the city, and pedestrians and traffic come to a stop to commemorate the fallen Insurgents.
