We visited on Saturday morning and were the only people there. It was sad to see how the cemetery had been a main focus of WWII. Many of the gravestones are riddled with bullet holes. I noticed that someone else had commented on how rude...More

Walked for an hour to get here and they couldn’t break a 50zlty note, for 2 people it came to 30zlty. So make sure you have change otherwise it could be a waste of time. Scored based on time wasted not content of attraction.

I visited expecting it to be free entrance. It was 15 Zloty which I think is a little steep. I was happy to pay anyway except for the rude staff member on duty. Extremely rude and aggressive manner. He should not be in a position...More

This is perfect if you fancy some peace and quiet or a bit of a melancholy history without being in a museum. It’s a beautiful dilapidated cemetery, with some amazing tombs around the edges. Bullet holes strewn on headstones and others collapsed. Sad but lovely....More

A place for reflection and thought - a real piece of history with a very special atmosphere. Also, because of its history and due to the abandoned look of the place, it is not for everyone - can be touching and very depressing.

Interesting place to get a feel for the inhabitants who lived in Wroclaw in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Mostly German heritage. Peaceful setting, much overgrown but interesting olace to visit.

A peaceful haven hidden behind a high wall, away from the hustle and busltle of the city. The gravestones show evidence of a violent battle that took place during the Second World War. Many headstones have bullet holes and others had been shattered and subsequently...More

Maybe not a fun attraction but definitely worth seeing, specially if one is in need of a peaceful walk and appreciates history...

In the middle of a bustling city there is a place where you can't but pause in your everyday rush. Pause and reflect on life and death, which are entangled there. Cold stones and the warmth of the spring sun. Silent stones and the concerto...More

The cemetery is huge and the effects of war and nature have slowly taken control over time. You can stroll through hundreds of tombstones of varying condition. Some graves are almost invisible - overtaken entirely by nature while others are in complete ruin - evidence...More
