While visiting a cemetery is probably not at the top of a tourist's list of things to do in a new city, Krakow provides the exception. Poland has a long history of honoring one's deceased loved ones on All Saint's Day with families flocking to cemeteries with grave decorations that include elaborate flower arrangements and candles to light at night. I was lucky to visit this cemetery (easily reachable by tram No. 2 from the city center) on All Saint's Day weekend, and I was amazed at the crowds flocking to it with flowers and candle arrangements to pay their respects. Seemingly thousands of candles lit the cemetery grounds, and it was almost completely silent although many people were there. The cemetery would be an interesting place to visit even outside of All Saint's Day.
