I went here yesterday, it was really beautiful with snow on the ground and especially in the later afternoon light (about an hour before dark). I didn't really have enough time to do it justice and there were a few areas I couldn't get to as the snow was so deep. There's still tons to see though (and the main... More

We went there out of curiosity (and boredom, because there's not much to do in Vilnius). We found famous Polish people buried in there, so it was a good experience in the patriotic point of view. The cemetery itself is a bit neglected, but I liked it - calm (no one else exept of our two was visiting there at... More

If you are in this kind of attractions, then it's the best in Vilnius. It's a pleasant walk itself and there are many famous city citizen buried there. Polish are coming for J.Pilsudski's heart grave, Lithuanian - for J.Basanavicius and many others. While the whole cemetary is a nice collection of traditions and art.

It is an old cemetery located on a hill, which made it different and strangely beautiful. Some famous people are buried here. There are some amazing tombs and carvings.

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
