Vey old tombstones, some dating back to the early 1800s. A walk around the cemetery gives plenty of time for reflecting the history of Poland. Would not be on the top of eveyones list of places to visit but I think it is very worthwhile.

A serene walk with family in this quiet place. Time for talking and taking time for the many questions this historical town awakes. Our kids are 9 and 11yo and it was an appriciated walk for all of us.

I happened to visit this place one evening when it was raining in Krakow. I was scared and horribly haunted by the evil memories at this place. Not a must visit placed because this is really dark.

This unique cemetary is an impressive monument of a culture that practically has vanished. Most of the very old tombstones are covered by feral flora. This is a site of silence at the heart of a busy city. A site to commemorate and respect. Worth...More

Cemeteries are special and the ones that are in a state of decay even more so. The history and tranquility makes this a very special place.
