I have been to this graveyard twice during visit here. I am staying quite near and found it on the way to the shopping centre. The first thing that struck me was how beautiful this graveyard with beautiful flowers, trees and birds. I have never...More

We had a wander through here on the way to Schindler’s Factory. The cemetery is extensive and there is a real sense of history, as some graves date back to the early c19. Many gravestones were destroyed by the Nazis and some fragments have been...More

* Be sure to approach from Miodowa street - the cemetery is a closed territory with only one gate and you can get in through ul. Miodowa. * Free admission but there's a donation box you can use to help * Men need to cover...More

Vey old tombstones, some dating back to the early 1800s. A walk around the cemetery gives plenty of time for reflecting the history of Poland. Would not be on the top of eveyones list of places to visit but I think it is very worthwhile.

A serene walk with family in this quiet place. Time for talking and taking time for the many questions this historical town awakes. Our kids are 9 and 11yo and it was an appriciated walk for all of us.

I happened to visit this place one evening when it was raining in Krakow. I was scared and horribly haunted by the evil memories at this place. Not a must visit placed because this is really dark.

This unique cemetary is an impressive monument of a culture that practically has vanished. Most of the very old tombstones are covered by feral flora. This is a site of silence at the heart of a busy city. A site to commemorate and respect. Worth...More
