Jewish Cemetery, Chisinau

#6 of 13 in Historic Sites in Moldova
Cemetery Tourist Spot
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.

  • The Jewish cemetery there is jewishs Who were killed in the war with Nazism in World War II A memorial from the Government of Israel commemorates the victims of the war  more »
  • As a Jew, it was interesting to walk to the cemetery, reading the names. Now these names almost don't give children, although it is possible and necessary to restore the tradition. For the modern Jewish cemetery are rare-the lack of mountain and Georgian surnames.

  • The cemetery is beautifully, very green, beautiful atmosphere and peaceful. It is worthwhile to read the history of the cemetery in the travel guide! The backgrounds are very interesting, especially the history with the stolen identities. Plan plenty of time!

  • 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
  • ok
  • ר' אברהם ע"ה שניאורסהן חותנו של רבי יוסף יצחק שניאורסהן הרבי השישי של חסידות חב"ד מומלץ לבקר ולהתפלל.
  • Some where garbage, syringes ... but in spite of this, very atmospheric, osoobenno in the wild part of the cemetery, especially at night
