This cemetery is on the grounds of the oldest wood church in Zakopane, Our Lady of Czestochowa. It's about a 2 minute walk on ul. Koscieliska from the underground crosswalk and the market stalls or 5 minutes from the funicular ticket office. The cemetery is...More

How respectful is this little place. Quiet, calming and well looked after. Just to look around and see the beautiful crosses and monuments to the deceased.

A neat way to spend a little time. It amazes me how respectful people are to those that have passed. Each headstone is like a piece of art.
