This is reputedly the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. Amazingly given the history, it's in good condition and worth going just to see the Poznanski tomb. The best way to get there is to take a trolley bus 1 or 6 to the Doly terminus,...More

This cemetery has it all; it was created in the 19th century and has some fabulous early headstones and tombs. It also is the site of the burial of the Jewish people who died in the Jewish Getto here in Lodz. Thanks to the effort...More

This is located very close to the Radegast station. Don't go to the main gate as locked. Go to the east side of the cemetery where there is a little door halfway up where you go in. It is quite overgrown but it seems that...More

I was interested to see some of the Jewish heritage whilst in Łódź. Unfortunately the gate was closed and locked. There were some signs on it with phone numbers. Is one meant to ring them in order to get inside?

If you've never been to any Jewish cemetery, you'll be surprised. It's completely different than Chirstian. But if you know what to expect, the history of WW2 and Litzmannstadt Ghetto will paralize you. In general, this place remains the same as it was in 1944....More

This cemetery is so old that you have a feeling that you walk through woods.I liked the atmosphere. Me and my friend walked on some less maintained paths and it's little bit like in jungle, even though there are signs with names of streets everywhere.

We visited this place because it's next to radagast and due to good reviews on TripAdvisor....but I wouldn't rate it as a great experience....not a comfortable walk if you are with a stroller and the cemetery gets repetitive after a while...we spent around 30-40 minutes...More

We picked up a brochure on the Jewish history of Lodz which included details of the richest factory owners and a history trail. An uplifting and heart wrenching account which took you from the mansions through the cultural identity to end at the cemetery. We...More
