The funeral ceremony of Lech Kaczynski and the Polish victims killed in the Smolensk aircrash has been held today in Warsaw where more than 100000 people participated. The alarm sirens sounded on Saturday marking 7 days since the air tragedy. The coffins of Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria will be transported to Krakow where will be laid in the Wawel cathedral. At the Wawel cathedral there are also buried the kings of Poland and Marshal Jozef Pilsudski - the founder of modern-day Poland. The Kaczynski's memorial ceremony took place at Pilsudski Square in Warsaw and lasted for about 4 hours. Each victim of the aircrash was represented by a giant picture. The burial of the polish president and his wife will take place on Sunday in Krakow and many foreign official are expected, among them supposed to be Barack Obama, Dmitri Medvedev, Nicholas Sarkozy, etc. There are still fears that the ash released by the Island volcano will perturb the arrival of the guests. Tomorrow in Krakow around 1.5 million people are to turn out for a farewell bid to Polish Prezident Kaczynski.
