Zeitenlik WWI Cemetery
Attraction details
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is must see in Thessaloniki if you are interested in WWI. This is military cemetery where lies soldiers from Serbia, France and other allied countries. There is a Cemetery keeper - the Mihailović family holds that for three generations, and you can actually live history with him, he recites poems of war, he tells everything and give you a space to wonder through out the cemetery and the Mausoleum. You can find also in this cemetery monuments of soldiers that were muslims or masons... Epic and very dignified place!

Serbian military cemetery where are graves of soldiers who died in the battles on Salonika front during World War I. Most of the graves are Serbian, but there are allso graves of French, English and Russian soldiers.
You will be more than welcome by the cemetery keeper Djordje Mihajlovic. He will tell you the most interesting and the most saddest stories about World War I, history after, and his struggle to maintain the cemetery functional.
