Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Dec 10, 2010
Although symbolic for all soldiers killed in war actions, this famous “Tomb of the Unknown Soldier” is indeed the tomb of a soldier. During the defence of Lviv in the winter of 1918-1919, he was killed but never identified. His tomb is housed in an arcade of the former Saxon Palace which was blown up by German Nazi Forces in 1944. Today, it is the central place of WWII memorial ceremonies in Poland and known trough broadcast transmissions worldwide.

Changing the Guards ceremonies take place regularly, unfortunately I just missed one when I arrived. Unfortunately, I am not well informed about the times. For sure, there is one changing of guards at noon, but I think that there are more changings as the one I missed was well before noon.
