Also is it common in Poland to visit a loved ones grave on the 1 year anniversary of their death?
Quite common. There is also the tradition to book a mass for the anniversary too
I noticed lots of fake flowers on sites,
It'sdue to the fact they stay there even of the weather is bad or you can't visit for a long time.
People do bring real flowers too. They will plant them straight on the grave, bring rhwm in pots or bring cut ones and put them in vases
