Got the key and walked around to the cemetery. Few tombstones with Jewish writing on them, mostly broken and buried in the ground. Bit desolate and not terribly interesting.

My grandparents are both buried there so we paid homage. There is a nice walk and picnic tables to have lunch or can walk to town and have lunch at cafe nearby. Well maintained and some very old markers. A lot of history!!

What's the point of showing off that you have one of the most amazing matsevas in your city's Jewish cemetery if you can't freely enter one. The key to the cemetery is in some... Jewish hotel nearby? I didn't like the fact that I have...More
