Jewish Cemetery, Chisinau

4.0
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Chisinau
The largest cemetery of its type in the world, Jewish Cemetery, with its ruined synagogue from World War II, provides a thought-provoking reminder of the Holocaust. Respectfully walk the avenues of the dead, which cover 100 hectares (247 acres), and contain 23,430 graves. Before World War II, the city's Jewish population was significant and at various times in history it constituted between 40 and 60 percent of the general population. Follow the boundary wall to find the ruined stone synagogue, now overgrown with trees and vines, which have woven into the Star of David aperture.

  • After the Memorial, you can stroll through a cemetery, gawk at a large number of old tombs, which are the same kind of attraction and a monument of architecture.

  • One of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the country. Unfortunately not well preserved.
  • It is open to public visit, yet not many interesting stuff to see. Apart from the ruins of the Synagogue.. It might be bit tricky to find it. You need to make a left right after the entrance, and keep going by the wall.
  • good
