We happened to visit for a ceremonial laying of wreath at the Smolensk plane crash memorial a few days before All Saints Day. It was fascinating to see relatives of the dead coming to the grave site to wash, polish and adorn the massive gravestones with elaborate floral arrangements. I was there for a business reason (the laying of the... More

This is a massive cemetery. It would probably take almost all day to go through everything. There are lots of beautiful memorials. This is Europe's biggest cemetery as well. Great experience.

One of the oldest cemeteries in Warsaw and by far the nicest - works from the late eighteenth century. Incumbent on him many distinguished Poles - eminent writers, poets, scholars, artists ... Come and stroll the paths, but in the silence and recollection, showing respect for the dead. Every year, November 1, at the cemetery known Polish personalities of science... More

I was on a morning wander and suddenly looked up to find I was walking the street my father and his parents lived in before it was bombed to the ground. My grandparents are buried round the corner in Powazki cemetery, so I made my way in. The walls were being restored so it was a little difficult to find... More

Many people visit Powązki on Nov. 1 and 2. You can see numerous candles buring also in the evening as in it open late those days.

Père Lachaise of eastern Europe but with more famous people. Worth everyminute of the time spend there. The most charming in late autumn when the trees turn gold and everything looks almost poethical.

Old prestigious cemetery. Many famous people are buried there. There is a memorial wall near the main entrance that lists the names of people of note.

Mostly for the Poles who know who is who and why. But even a foreigner can be surprised by endless , perfect rows of the crosses with the names of the first Polish soldiers dead in the very beginning of the WW II
