Powazki Cemetery, Warsaw

(4.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Powazki Cemetery serves as a rich museum of Warsaw's history and a real treasury of funerary sculpture and small architecture. Dominik Merlini, the royal architect to King Stanisław August Poniatowski, designed the cemetery in 1790. The remains of the royal family, relatives, and members of his court are buried in the catacombs. Walk down the southern side of the catacombs, along the avenue of notables, which includes the final resting places of poets, musicians, actors, and other great Pols. A closer look at some of the inscriptions will give you an insight into how they lived and died. The cemetery was declared a national monument and is often compared with Pere Lachaise in Paris.

  • The cemetery is located in the northern part of the city centre of Warsaw below from the Jewish cemetery. From the old city you need twenty minutes walking around up here. Who likes the special atmosphere on cemeteries, will feel at home here. In addition, there are to discover plenty of interesting statues.

  • This quaint cemetery, there are plenty of celebrities, which made to works of art, trees and peace among the noise of the city. Walk through the second, depending on the visitor's history lesson, memories, contemplation or tilt of the head. Worth in times of continuous traffic stop in its environment.
