Why locals love it

Opened in the beginning of the 19th Century, Rakowicki Cemetary is the resting place of ordinary citizens, war heroes, political figures, artists, poets etc. Many of its tombs contain the bodies of some of Krakow's and even Poland's most influential figures.

Why you should visit it

Sprawling over about 42 hectares of land, this is one of Poland's best known cemeteries. This cemetery is an architectural and artistic gem with graves, tombs, and mausoleums of different shapes and sizes designed by different artists and in different styles.

Special tip

One of the most beautiful nights of the year to visit is All Saints on the 1st of November when the entire cemetery is glowing with candlelight.
