- Beautiful Cemetery with wonderfully sculptured memorials. Holds a particularly fine Commonwealth War Grave section.We originally visited to pay our respects to the dead in the CWG plot as I am a CWG EOHO volunteer. However the cemetery is truly amazing with many spectacular and well maintained private memorials. As well as the CWG plot (beautifully maintained) there are Polish, Soviet and German memorials. Well worth a visit if you like your history.Written 20 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Just the other side of the railway through an underpass you find the cemetery. Paths lead you through a setting that looks unreal as headstones disappear under ivy creating a scene that once you ponder why is thought provoking. There are particular graves you are directed to and the dates vary significantly as you wonder around. Grave markers are placed in the wall from the 1950s renovation after the destruction during WW2. There are moments of total silence punctuated by birdsong that make this a place to stand and stare and contemplate it all. Few graves are tended which makes it even more poignant.Written 14 April 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I can honestly say I have never seen such a beautiful cemetery anywhere I have visited, this one is just out of this world, full of colour, every grave is cared for and it makes for a humbling but pleasant place to be. Not something you usually say about cemeteries.Written 11 November 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Walking down Ulica Szeroka is something I always look forward to doing on any trip to Krakow I take ,such a beautiful street ,located in the grounds of the Remuh Synagogue is the Remuh Cemetery .
Dating back to the 16th century it's a well preserved cemetery ,very evocative and well worth checking out if you're in the Jewish Quarter.Written 25 August 2022
- Much smaller than Rakowicki cemetery in the north of the city, Salwatorski is also more intimate and accessible. It is on a hill side towards Kosciuszki mound and from it there is a nice view over the Wisla river and the city. The graves and the grounds are well kept and there is a small chapel built in 1888. The cemetery was consecrated in 1865 and served as a burial ground for the local parish. Later many intellectuals and artists found their last resting place here among them Andrzej Wajda, the famous Polish film director who died in 2016.Written 29 January 2021
