I enjoy walking through cemeteries in other countries and this one did not disappoint. Many interesting grave markers and the way they go up the hill was remarkable. There is a beautiful chapel (like a mini St. Anne's) but it was not open when I...More

This old Polish cemetery in Vilnius is located on two small hills only 1 km from the Gate of Dawn in Vilnius. There is a lot of beautiful, old gravestones and family vaults, some of them are ruined. Good location for photographers.
