Powazki Cemetery, Warsaw

4.8
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.

    A place for spiritual walk. The graves of famous Poles, old tombs, giant trees, silence. It is worth walking through porozmyślać about passing.

    I believe that every Pole should be at least one time in your life. I had planned for a long time there and be, and finally succeeded. History and memory.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
