Jewish Cemetery (Cmentarz Zydowski), Warsaw
(4.4/5 based on 300+ 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. Use our Warsaw holiday planner to visit Jewish Cemetery (Cmentarz Zydowski) on your trip to Warsaw, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • The Jewish cemetery is a bit far from the Centre but easily accessible by tram and bus. You look on the internet hours because, especially the winter, closes early and takes about 30 minutes to get there from some parts of the city. At the entrance there is a sort of "tickets", entrance costs 10PLN that the Foundation in charge of the cemetery I use for maintenance. What is striking is the picturesque landscape, thousands of tombstones, many of them broken and covered with a thin layer of MOSS, accompany you to the long avenues. If you remain silent, and there is enough I come, the thin trees in which the cemetery is set begin to move and to produce a sound that resembles a hand. A map will help you to identify the graves of famous people and some monuments in honor of the fallen of the Shoah (many gravestones here date back to 7/800, don't you think so you are only facing a Holocaust Memorial).

  • עדות אילמת להיסטוריה עשירה של מאות בשנים (מהמאה ה-14) של יהדות ורשה. מחיר כניסה לאדם - 10 זלוטי. המקום מציע שירות איתור קברים על פי השם הניתן. חוויה מרגשת ! 
  • Were on this cemetery within the framework of the visit the main places of Jewish memory in contemporary Warsaw. Is not in the best condition, but the object itself is very interesting
