Krakow

Military Cemetery

  ul. Prandoty     more than a year ago
Across from Rakowicki is Kraków's Military Cemetery, opened in 1920 to retire the remains of fallen Polish WWI soldiers and their families. At the entrance you'll find a forever-flowered and candlelit monument to the Pope, remembering his visits here to the graves of his parents. Close by is a monument to members of the Home Army (Armia Krajowa), as well as several other military monuments remembering the victims of Katyń and WWII, many of whom are also buried within. There is even a British section of the cemetery with the remains of 552 WWII soldiers, pilots and POWs collected from all over PL, as well as German and Soviet plots. Worth visiting for a look at the monumental sculpture art.
