Mound of the Warsaw Uprising

This mound was formed by the debris of the old city of Warsaw, which was completely demolished in 1944 by the Germans. Today a Kotwica - symbol of the Polish underground army - stands on top of the hill, commemorating the citizens of Warsaw and the Polish soldiers perished between 1939 and 1944. Visitors may enjoy the impressive Warsaw panorama from here.
