Here you’ll find a very special way to bury people. You have a lot of soldiers’ graves from Napoleon wars, a lot of Polish and Russian soldiers’ graves, but the most interesting is that you have a hill for actors, another for artists and a hill for intellectuals as professors and other educated persons and so on, so you’ll rest...

Not many like to visit cemeteries but this one contains the history of Lithuania --its patriots who died at the hand of the Soviets as well as the Soviets, Poles, Tatars and , most importantly for me, it contains the remains of some 40,000 soldiers of ten nations that comprised Napoleon's army retreating from Moscow in December 2012. On a... More

This is quite far from other sights if going on foot (about 30-40 minutes from the Cathedral) so best combined with the St Peter & St Paul church (also reviewed), about half-way. This is a cemetery both for national war heroes (tombs of "comrades" fallen during the independence process from the USSR) and prominent art figures. There are also some... More

Antakalnis Cemetry is also known as the soldiers' cemetry due to the large number of war graves contained there. At the entrance of the cemetry there is a small beautifully... More
