The 11th November is a Public Holiday in Poland to celebrate Independence Day. It is regarded as the date when Poland finally regained independence following the partitions that began in the 18th century. There is a parade in Warsaw on the square in front of the Tomb to the Unknown Soldier, which is attended by the President and other officals. The ceremony starts at 12 midday and the crowds are always huge.
