Nice cemetery

If you go around Zemun, don't forget to visit this place, next to the tower. Quiet, old, calm, full of trees. If you're not scared of cemeteries, just go there.

We always make a point of visiting cemeteries as they are such an important part of history. This cemetery is on the highest part of Zemun at Gardos and is still in use. However, unless yuu can read Serbian what you will get from the visit is limited. The cemetery is within 100m of the tower on Gardos.

While I was walking down the neighborhood of Zemun, trying to get to the banks of Dunav, I stumbled upon something very unfamiliar for me. A cemetery so close to living people. I stood there trying to comprehend how can people live across the road(15meters away) from a cemetery! It was an experience of its kind, which made me post... More

I went to Zenum with my husband on a private guided tour in December. Well, Zenum used to be a separate city from Belgrade and it was actually under Austrian rule while Belgrade was occupied by Ottomans, so the architecture is different. Yet, there is not much to see unless you like to walk purposelessly. The tower everybody talks about... More

This cemetery was opened in XVIII century but there are some records that it is even older. Under the cemetery are underground passages which connect whole city. Cemetery is divided globally on Catholic and Orthodox area. Catholic area is divided in three areas: Catholic, Muslim and Jewish. Some tombs are very old, some can fall, so be careful. If you...

Right next to the Gardos tower is the Zemun cemetery and its worth a quiet and reflective walk amongst tombstones that are in some cases 200 years old.

The cemetery has graves of different religions . Hebrew letters next to Cyrillic and Latin writings. The grandparents' graves of Theodor Hertzl - One of the greatest Jewish leaders are to be seen in this cemetery. Very moving

It is near the tower of Zemun so we went to the yellow church. We passed through the graves and got in. Unfortunately there was a coffinn inside and so the story ends.

The Cemetery is old and neat, doesnt look scary at all or something. It is located on the top of a not high hill, so the idea was nice to bu buried with a picturesque view around. Roses, old church, neat monuments, quiet and peaceful. come on a sunny day. (That was a part of my Zemun date-day program, lol)

It was opened in mid XVIII century. Today it is devided on three parts: catholic and Orthodox cemetery. Catholic cemetery includes Muslim and Jewish cemetery too. If you search around you can see remains of neolitic settlement which was destroyed in fire, old Medevial fortress walls, bastion from 1841... Choose one of the gates and start your own reserach.
