"Old Powazki" Powazki Cemetery Tip by ZiOOlek

Powazki Cemetery, Warsaw: 5 reviews and 13 photos

In the area of Powazki there is Powazki Cemetery, (Cmentarz Powazkowski) called often Old Powazki (Stare Powazki) - the oldest catholic cemetery in the city. It is often compared with the famous Père Lachaise in Paris, for its beauty and atmosphere.

The Powazki is actually a necropolis, consisting of a whole complex of cemeteries. In 1790, most cemeteries in the Warsaw city centre were closed due to sanitary reasons, and a new Catholic cemetery in the western suburb of Powazki was created. Soon afterwards, several other cemeteries were founded in the area: Jewish, Calvinist, Lutheran, Caucassian and Tatar. The Orthodox cemetery is located not far from the Powazki necropoly.
