Another fascinating story...and I've got to ask if you know why they put fences and gates around cemeteries?

Answer: People are just dying to get in.

The cemetery gates look really beautiful. Do you happen to know how old is it?

Most interesting photo. A gate to keep somebody out or to keep somebody in?

The architecture is most ineresting as it is a mix of sandstone and clinker. It gives me pleasure.

Wonderful entrance! What do the side niches stand for? Were there any statues?

Ciekawa architektura -- i te 'wieżyczki' po bokach i to nawiązanie do gotyku.

@Cristóbal - we don't know how old it is...:(

@JM - we don to remember if there were any statues. Currently, as you can see, people put there obituaries.
