Notable people, slain soldiers and civilians from the Warsaw Uprising, WWII, Battle of Warsaw, September Campaign and Invasion of Poland are resting here. Many mausoleums and graves have sculptures handcrafted by artists and masters of the 19th and 20th Centuries. A slightly spooky and surreal experience for tourists who visit the site.
