I hunted this place down because of a family connection and it was the most moving experience. The cemetery is overgrown yet still stunningly beautiful - though do prepare yourself for the signs of neglect that come with nature reclaiming the cemetery. We spent ages...More

The Jewish Cemetery is home to what was once a large Jewish population in the Republic of Moldova. It's still known as one of the largest Jewish Cemeteries in Europe. It's a bit of overgrown, but mostly around the plot areas. It's very walk-able and...More

This is off the beaten path from the city center but it is a most see if you are in Chisinua. Many of the paths are overgrown but the main paths are easily traversable. It is a large cemetery, and allows you to glimpse into...More

This place is hard to find if you don't have a local to show you around, as it's past a park, then some imposing blocks of flats and up a cobbled street winding through some fairly dilapidated houses. Once you get there it's quite arresting...More

I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, but this was for sure the biggest surprise in that department ever. Overgrown, rusted, not a soul around, invokes strong feelings of the meaning of passing time. Not a fun, but certainly an interesting thing to do

Let's be honest: there's not that much to see in central Chisinau. So if you're here for any length of time, you'll want to find other things to see. I walked out from the city center to the Jewish Cemetery in about 1 hour 20...More

This cemetery contains many thousands of graves - it is thought to be the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe - and much of it is in a state of disrepair, reflecting both official neglect and the hugely diminished size of Moldova's Jewish population. But it...More

Not to be missed. There is a closed abandoned synagogue in the cemetery where the Jews were shot by the Nazis. You can see the bullet holes in the concrete. Graves dating back to the 1800s. Only one third of the cemetary remains--houses were built...More
