Powazki Cemetery, Warsaw

4.5
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. Powazki Cemetery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Warsaw Edition.

  • There is probably in Polish słynniejszego and more important cemetery for Polish people. It's not about some bid with other nekropoliami and i realize that these words may be poorly chosen. Not only that, it is a historical cemetery is a place of memory. I guess I'll never forget that moment when, after the overthrow of the regime, the past correctly as a teenager before many years ago, we went with family Firefox candles on the graves of Katyń. Place mandatory.

  • On the second I was several times including three times on August 1, at the celebration of the Warsaw Uprising. The Festival is a true experience for all Poles, not only for born Warsaw and those living there for generations. Legion is the responsibility of many distinguished people.
