  • This is a remarkable and vast cemetery filled with all manner of headstones and mausoleums. It is well worth a stroll on a nice day.  more »
  • On a slightly gloomy day it was a nice choice to spend a few hours in peace. There are many precious sculptures that adorn both the structure of the cemetery and the tombstones, some a bit disturbing, but all the monumental cemeteries are a bit.... There was also a funeral.....

  • The only cemetery you'll probably enjoy visiting and want to visit again. Especially on the 1st of November, all saints day, you might notice that everyone visits this place (there's also free public transport to the cemetery from the capitol), it's definitely worth a visit. Breathtaking scenery and definitely unique.
  • It’s worth the schlep to this magical place. It’s quite out of this world. The architecture is stunning and a walk around the cemetery gives you an indication of the juxtaposition of the starkness of communism and the richesse of the art nouveau. STUNNING
