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

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

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
