Presidential Guard in Syntagma.

Syntagma square (which actually means Constitution Square) is in Athens Center. On the top of the square is located the Greek Parliament. Right bellow that building is the Monument of the Unknown Soldier. This is the place where Greek people pay homage to all those unknown who gave their lives for the freedom of Greece.

 

In front of the monument, there are everyday two guys of the Presidential Guard to pay honor. Every Sunday at 11:00 there is a Parade of the Presidential Guard. Two main avenues are closed for almost 45 minutes, and the Parade finish with the Guard being changed. Follows some photos from that “event” which of course attracts lot of people, mostly tourists.
