Jewish Cemetery (Cmentarz Zydowski), Warsaw
(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
See one of the largest cemeteries in Europe, Jewish Cemetery (Cmentarz Zydowski), covering 33 hectares (83 acres) with pathways that cut through the trees and gravestones. Walk through the cemetery's sections and read the inscriptions using these pathways so as not to disurb the grave sites, and to avoid getting caught in the brush. Much of the cemetery has become overgrown, with headstones that have fallen over because there is no family to care for them. However, it remains a sacred place and many visit to remember the Jewish people of Warsaw who lost their lives in World War II. A small section of the burial grounds still serves the remaining Jewish inhabitants of Warsaw.

  • A cemetery that miraculously not the Germans destroyed. Go and visit it is worth. Located within a forest and mossy green tombstones more antique, some falls and anonymous.

  • It's worth visiting this cemetery although far from downtown. It's really amazing to penetrate between the paths of this large cemetery. More than the monumental tombs, has impressed me. Its ancient tombs are true masterpieces of art. Inside there is a map with directions of all graves. You have to be seen because it is different from all the cemeteries that you may have seen in your life. The Jewish cemetery in Europe.

  • נסעתי לשם כחלק מסיור פרטי שלקחתי , חובה לראות לדעתי וכדי לקחת מדריך שיסביר על ההיסטוריה . לי זאת הייתה חוויה מיוחדת.
