New Podgórze Cemetery (Cmentarz Podgórski)

Behind Kopiec Krakusa on the Krakus foothills, the New Cemetery is a large, picturesque memorial park filled with monumental sculpture. Opened in 1900, the cemetery originally had a strict Catholic character with a separate designated area for Protestants and a distinct section for suicides (marked 'VIII-a'). Today it continues to grow and is ideal place to visit if you are here on All Souls' Day (Nov. 1, 2) due to its basin-shape creating an amphitheatre of coloured candlelight. Serviced by its own stop called ‘Cmentarz Podgórski,’ you can get there by catching tram 13 from 'Plac Wszystkich Świętych,' tram 6 from 'Plac Wolnica,' or tram 24 from 'Poczta Główna.'



Open 07:00 - 18:00.
