President Andrzej Duda signed a declaration which foresees the reconstruction of the Saxon Palace. The President’s Chancellery’s twitter account shared photos of the event:

“President Andrzej Duda signed the declaration to rebuild the Saxon Palace on the occasion of the 100thanniversary of Poland regaining its independence.”


The Saxon Palace was demolished by the Germans during the planned destruction of Warsaw after the 1944 Warsaw Uprising during the Second World War. Today, only a part of the central arcade remains, which is home to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
