har har. Actually worth a look though... never thought I'd see a cemetery on TripAdvisor, but this one is pretty "nice" and worth a visit for some creepy old beauty. Close to the capital.

“Old and creepy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

We loved going through this cemetery. It's all that you could hope for in an old cemetery...tree roots, fallen over headstones, the utter stereotype of an old cemetery. Loved it!

“Poorly maintained”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

Not well maintained, debris scattered everywhere. Older graves and stones neglected when they fall.
