Without doubt the most beautiful cemetery I have ever visited - set on terraced land, framed by tall trees - some superbly sculpted headstones, carefully tended & flowered graves.

Cemetery gives you a chance to take a look into past. For example plenty of Polish names tells you about joint history with Poland, they had union with Poland, like Austria-Hungary. Take a walk at cemetery and admire headstones and look old names.

It was not as impressive as I expected, but the cemetery is at a beautiful location, many of the gravestones are old and there are some nice sculptures and small chapels. A good place for a quiet walk at an atmospheric place.

nice to get away from the bustle of the city and enjoy quiet surroundings- not that the residents were likely to be noisy!

It's a must-see place only for Poles dreaming of the long gone days of Polish expansionism. Or if you're generally interested in cemeteries, this one's quite old and nicely located. Didn't seem particularly neglected. Some tombstones are falling apart, but that's what you can expect...More

For Polish people visiting this place is a must. There is a big part of our history, there are buried here a lot of known Poles, for example: Józef Piłsudski (his heart) and his mother and brother, Joachim Lelewel and many more. We were on...More
