This beautiful cemetary is one of the most important Polish necropolies. Spectacularly located on the hills, with many beautiful monuments and gravestones allows for a nice walk. I am not sure whether it would be interesting for other nations, but it is must for Polish people.

Near the Vilnius old town is located old Lithuanian and Polish cemetry. Big and quite place with large tombstones, chapels, columbariums, Angel hill. Can find there tombs for Lithuanian writers and famous people: Basanavicius, Ciurlionis, Sruoga, Putinas, Vileisis family tomb etc. As well graves for rich people. There you can also find Polish soldiers graves & heart of Pilsudsky.

Why it is sad? Because the locals, focused on search of "lithuanity", disregard anything that is not "Lithuanian" enough. And Rasu (in Polish Rossa) actually is, as it is mainly the Polish cemetary, as about 80% of the population of Vilnius before WWII was Polish... And this place is a witness of that time. Inconvenient witness. You will not get... More

This cemetery is very interesting and important for Lithuanian and Polish culture. For the other nations it could be just a charming old cemetery. There are burried such famous people as J.Basanavicius (signatar of Lithuanian independence), lawyer M.Romer, writer B.Sruoga, V.Mykolaitis Putinas, K.Boruta, lots of Vilnius university professors such as Lelevel. Olso there is burried the heart of the president... More
