Changing of the Guard: Evzones in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Syntagma Square, Athens, Greece
Syntagma Square, is located in central Athens, Greece. The Square is named after the Constitution that King Othon was forced to grant the people after a popular and military uprising, on September 3, 1843.
The square proper is bordered by Vassileos Georgiou A' Street to the north, Othonos Street to the south, Filellinon Street to the west and Amalias Avenue to the east. The eastern side of the square is higher than the western, and dominated by a set of marble steps leading to Amalias Avenue; beneath these lies the Syntagma metro station. The stairs emerge below between a pair of outdoor cafes, and are a popular city-centre gathering place. Syntagma also includes two green areas to the north and south, planted with shade trees, while in the center of the square a large water fountain traditionally hosts the occasionally sighted Syntagma pigeons, along with heat-tormented Athenians during the summer.
Syntagma Square is also the frequent site of political demonstrations. The Greek Parliament is immediately across Amalias Avenue to the east, and surrounded by the extensive National Gardens, which are open to the public. Every hour, the changing of the guard ceremony, performed by the Presidential Guard, is conducted in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on the area between the square and parliament. On Sundays and official holidays, the ceremonial changing of the guard takes place with an army band and the majority of the 120 Evzones present at 11am.
宪法广场北到Vassileos Georgiou A'街，南面是Othonos 街，西到Filellinon 街，东到阿马利亚大街。广场的东部比西部高，有一些大理石台阶通到阿马利亚大街。其下方是地铁车站。附近多户外咖啡馆，是受欢迎的市中心聚会地点。广场的南北有两片绿地，种植有遮荫树木，中心是一个大型喷泉，与雅典人一同度过炎夏。
