Every hour there is a changing of the guard of the Greek Evzon Guards. This ritual symbolizes several centuries of occupation of the country by the Ottoman Empire. The ritual takes place according to clearly defined rules. In front of the sculpture of the Unknown Soldier, the guards slowly walk towards each other, raising their leg high, then lowering it to the ground, tapping the toe of their clogs on the marble. They move slowly and symmetrically, holding a massive carbine on their left shoulder.
