The body of Polish President Lech Kaczynski has been flown back to Warsaw a day after his plane crashed in western Russia, killing all 96 people on board.
Lech Kaczynski's daughter, Marta, wept as his coffin was removed from the plane before a brief religious service.
Among those gathered to meet the coffin at the military airport were his twin brother, former Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who led the mourners in kneeling beside the casket to pay his respects.
Crowds of Poles lined the streets of Warsaw as the coffin was driven to the presidential palace.
As the hearse carrying the late president's body passed by, some wept, some stood in silent reflection, while many strained to capture the moment with a photograph.
The palace resembles a shrine, the square outside festooned with flowers, Polish flags and portraits of the dead.
The coffin will lie in state at the palace for a week, where it will be available for public viewing.
A week of mourning will be observed across the country in honour of the 96 people who died in Saturday's crash.
Earlier in the day, people across Poland held a two-minute silence.
Russia has declared Monday a day of mourning and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said he would oversee the inquiry into the crash.
