After a bit of a long walk from the town centre (with hindsight, we probably should have taken a taxi or tram!), we had a good look round the cemetery. It was more like a park, with a couple of lovely pools with fountains and a magnificent chapel of rest. You should low a decent amount of time to look... More

Thought this is cemetery you should visit this place for sure. This is probably one of the most beautiful cemetaries in the world and a walk here is relaxing and enjoyable.

One of the most amazing places I've ever been. Probably, like me, you would not think to visit a cemetery..... I came upon it incidentally myself. However, The plant life is fantastic! Such trees! It's more like a vast park, with an ornamental lake, and fountains, and sculptures. There is an atmosphere of peace and beauty. See it! Be moved... More

Szcezcin's really a nice city...especially the mid-part. Have been to Central Cemetery today - great location! All around Szcezcin you can find villages and landscapes as we know it from Poland..

It is not really happy place to visit when you have someone there. In the other hand it has a lot of to offer. You can visit a graves of unnamed soldiers and underground fighters and give them your respect.

One of the largest cemeteries in Europe dating back to 1901 when it was established. A tranquil location with a huge variety of plant and wild life. Worth a look during a quiet walk.

It is the biggest cemetery in Poland and 3rd the biggest in Europe. It is very unique cemetary for many reasons: 1. it looks more like park than cemetary, and it is very extraordinary for Polish cemeteries. 2) archtecture of all chapels and monuments which are there 3) the spirit of the place. You can go there with even with... More

It the the second biggest Cemetery in Europe. The design is very interesting and if one likes long walks among interesting monuments and trees, this is the place for him/her. I recommend taking a bike there since the place covers quite large area. It is a place for people who are interested in nature (many rare species), landscape architecture and... More

The cemetery is a unique park where you can go for a walk, to pay tribute to those who died, or go to a concert of classical music. The atmosphere builds high trees, tombstones and a large fountain. There you can also find a variety of animals such as squirrels, birds and foxes, which diversify the your walk. If you... More

This is more like a huge forested park than cemetery. Main gate is on Ku Słońcu Street (east part of cemetery), when main car park is few hundred meters west of that. You can spend a lot of time there exploring so many magnificent monuments stretching over at least two centuries and showing always difficult polish-german neighborhood. In the center... More
