I would recommend to everyone who visits Thessaloniki to visit this WWI Cementary /Monument. For families who has their relatives burried here it is an exceptional emotional experience and great historical value especially if Deda Đorđe is there to give tell the story behind this monument!

I found this cemetery very moving. We were on a trip and didn't realise we were going there. Would like to have walked among the british part and laid some flowers but unfortunately we didn't have time. Very moving and I am glad I discovered it. Will certainly go back if I am in the country again.

Peaceful walking among heroes in a deafening silence. It was my first time visiting a war grave so for me it was like I entered a different dimension. All the surroundings are trying to teach you about heroism, love for the country & freedom, sacrifice and struggle but also about casualties, the incomprehensible mistake of war, the flaws of the mankind, a not so distant catastrophe.

A hidden gem in the vicinity. Be sure to check it and honor the fallen by accepting the collective wisdom of the place.

The cemetery is a final destination for several thousands of WWI soldiers from different countries and armies. The Serbian part has a mausoleum and an old cemetery keeper (Djordje Mihailovic), more than 80 years old. His grandfather was a WWI soldier and the first keeper of this place. Djordje's father continued to work here, and Djordje is the third keeper in the line. He says that he has only a daughter, and no sons, so he still has to work. He will be happy to explain all you want to know and to offer you some rakija (Serbian spirit drink). He speaks Serbian and Greek, I'm not sure about the other languages.

Built by several Allied armies. Serbian part has an Mausoleum with great hero songs written. Ask old George (the keeper) for a translation and the tour.
