Monument to the Warsaw Uprising information
Lonely Planet review
Directly opposite the Cathedral of the Polish Army stands one of Warsaw’s most important landmarks. This bronze tableau depicts Armia Krajowa (AK; Home Army) fighters emerging ghostlike from the shattered brickwork of their ruined city, while others descend through a manhole into the network of sewers. The monument was unveiled on 1 August 1989, the 45th anniversary of the uprising.
