Jewish Cemetery, Chisinau
(3.9/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Jewish Cemetery and other Chisinau attractions using our handy Chisinau trip itinerary maker.

  • 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.
  • Some where garbage, syringes ... but in spite of this, very atmospheric, osoobenno in the wild part of the cemetery, especially at night
