Oliwa Cemetery

  ul. Opacka 8, Gdańsk ,   Oliwa         20 Sep 2023
The main cemetery in the Gdańsk district of Oliwa is notable for the number of older graves you can find as you wander its paths, but it really comes into its own on All Saints' Day (see video below). Then there is probably no better place in the city to experience the eery atmosphere a late afternoon walk through a graveyard lit by thousands upon thousands of flickering candles can create. It might sound odd to sightsee a graveyard but this is where you will find us every November 1 and we don't have any friends, relatives or ancestors buried here.
