After the pandemic period, Warsaw is returning to the usual mode of anniversary celebrations: sessions will be held at the Powązki and Insurgents' Cemeteries in Wola, at Krasiński Square, in places of remembrance of heroes and events. The joint singing of insurgent songs will also return.

On 1 August at 'W' hour – 5 pm - sirens will sound throughout Warsaw, and the city will pause for a moment of silence to commemorate the insurgents. Flowers will be laid at monuments and sites associated with the Uprising, and a Remembrance March will also be held. The Warsaw Uprising Museum is organising, among other things, a photographic competition entitled Remembrance "In" Frame and an outdoor game called Labyrinth '44.

We ask all Varsovians to inform their Ukrainian visitors about our tradition. This is a moment in which we show that despite being razed to the ground, Warsaw never gives up and can be a model for our Ukrainian brothers and sisters. We want to send them the assurance that their cities will also recover from this tragedy and that Warsaw is ready to help, - appeals Warsaw Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski.
