“The best to visit on the 1st of November”

Stary Cmentarz Lublin
Ranked #16 of 57 things to do in Lublin
Attraction details
Reviewed April 9, 2015

Place with very good preserved old Polish and Russian graves with spectacular sculptures. On the 1st of November the entire place is bathed in light from thousands of candles as Poles visiting graves this day lying wraths and flowers and lighting a candle on each grave.

It is a sentimental journey into the past. We were lucky to get the ohel of the Seer of Lublin open for us. Do not miss this site when you are in Lublin. We had a cell phone number to the man who takes care of the site, so he opened the cemetery for us.

The stare cmentarz is a short bus ride away from the Marketplace at Lublin. Here you see the sharp contrast that separates men even in death. On one side of the road lies the Roman Catholic Cemetry- this is vibrant, colourful, and bustling. There are people tending graves here on a massive scale. The place is bustling with life, as bereaved relatives cut grass, remove weeds, replenish flowers, set candle lights and sweep the graves of their loved ones. This place is cared for - the Poles do death very well. The walls are surrounded with florists booths where you can buy a whole array of floristry- some rather gaudy by UK standards. Impressive death notices line the walls. In contrast across the road is the main Jewish cemetry- sad and neglected - mainly weeds, long grass and dandelions. A few grave stones tell the horrendous story of Lublin's Jewish past and their horrific fate, but why so neglected- surely the Jewish community could take some pride in this, and clean it up. They deserve more respect than it appears they are being given.
