You have to take a tram from the center. It wasn't long. My husband and I always go to cemeteries. They are always serene and peaceful. You can also tell a lot about a culture by the way they treat their dead. I have never paid to get into one - even in the Jewish eastern European ones that are memorials to the Holocaust. The price was cheap but still something seemed wrong about paying to get in to a cemetery. I was expecting a normal cemetery. What I found was an weed infested, overgrown shrubbery disgrace. It looks like they haven't even tried to keep the place in shape. My husband said that maybe they were trying to keep it looking like it did when the Germans got done with it. Plus there aren't many Jewish people left in Warsaw to take care of it. In my mind, I thought it was disrespectful to the dead. Especially since they charge to get in. Saying that...it was a very pretty with all the trees and the huge amount of tombstones. They were very old and crumbling. A lot of stones were knocked over. That happens with age and is understandable. In a strange way, the place was beautiful. Photography people could spend all day there. What was worth seeing for me was the more modern memorials to the war dead. The one for children really got me. It is worth going to but just be prepared that it isn't well taken care of.
