Why locals love it
This is one of the greatest Jewish cemeteries in the world with over 200.000 graves. Sadly it's been neglected for years and it feels and looks kind of seedy but this is a truly beautiful site, showing what kind of city Warsaw used to be.
Why you should visit it
You can easily get lost (in your thoughts and in the cemetery itself) for few hours, wandering around and learning about the Jewish community and its tragic history. This is one of the most impressive Jewish graveyards you will ever see!
in the surrounding there are few more historic cemeteries that are well worth a visit too!
