New Podgórze Cemetery

  ul. Wapienna 13 ,   Podgórze          (+48) 12 656 17 25     03 Mar 2022
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 an ideal place to visit if you are here on All Souls' Day (Nov. 1, 2) due to its basin-shape, which creates an amphitheatre of coloured candlelight. Serviced by its own stop, you can get there easily by tram - get off at ‘Cmentarz Podgórski.’
