  • Beautifully laid graves dating back more than 100 years. Have a peaceful and solemn walk along the gravestones and nearby trees. Do not bring your superstitious mom along the walk.
  • Ancient graves are kind of attracting. Just remember the place you're in is not a full touristic attraction.
  • An incredible place to contemplate death and the past. History is very much alive in this cemetery that tells its story on each headstone. If you enjoy introspection and thoughtfulness, you should definitely visit this place.
  • Very interesting with historic graves and super steep brutalist bridges over the motorway that cuts the cemetery on halfs.
  • It's quite small and usually quiet, if you can ignore the motorway noise. Hardly ever see anybody around this park. Great place to sit, unwind and read a book during your lunch break.
