    Short description

    The Powazki Cemetery was consecrated in 1792, at a time when in other parts of the city, such as Warsaw’s Old Town, burial grounds were closed for sanitary reasons. It is the most famous cemetery in Poland because numerous gravestones here can be counted among the high art of sculpture. In the Avenue of the Distinguished there are also graves of famous Polish personalities.

    The cemetery covers an area of 43 hectares and contains almost 70 graves. More than a million people have been buried here.

    The cemetery is at its most beautiful in the evening hours of 1 November, on All Saints’ Day.

    In general, the Powazki cemetery means the Catholic municipal cemetery described here, which is located in the Powazki district. This cemetery is only one cemetery of a whole cemetery complex consisting of the Jewish, Islamic-Tatar, Caucasian-Islamic, Protestant-Augsburg and Protestant-Reformed cemeteries. All these cemeteries are described in other overviews.
