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.

Olso there is burried the heart of the president... More
