When the snow is fallen, and the temperatures are cold, Rasos cemetery is one of the most picturesque places in all of Vilnius. It's old, it's crowded, and it's private. You are very likely to see no one else there or just few people. In...More

I like to walk in cemeteries because it helps to understand the local culture. The cemetery was quite old, hilly, fence around it. You just cannot go out when you want. It is quite a job to find the gates.

Everything about this cemetery should encourage a visitor to view the beautiful hillside site, the elaborate headstones with individual sculptures. A very ennobling experience .

Without doubt the most beautiful cemetery I have ever visited - set on terraced land, framed by tall trees - some superbly sculpted headstones, carefully tended & flowered graves.

Cemetery gives you a chance to take a look into past. For example plenty of Polish names tells you about joint history with Poland, they had union with Poland, like Austria-Hungary. Take a walk at cemetery and admire headstones and look old names.

It was not as impressive as I expected, but the cemetery is at a beautiful location, many of the gravestones are old and there are some nice sculptures and small chapels. A good place for a quiet walk at an atmospheric place.

This is a Cemetery. nothing more to say. It tels you a lot if you know the history of the place. Otherwise it is just "stones"

This cemetery made one of the top impression on me when in Vilnius. I didn't care much for a big names but a very specific atmosphere of this place. First, the cemetery is located on the hilly grounds. This makes it look like terraces. Secondly,...More
