Bródno Cemetery (Cmentarz Bródnowski)


General

Egységtípus:

This is one of the largest cemeteries in Europe, as far as the number of buried is concerned. Initially it was a cemetery for the poor.

This is one of the largest cemeteries in Europe, as far as the number of buried is concerned (nearly 1.2 million). It was established in 1884 in the then-village of Bródno, at the initiative of Warsaw Mayor Sokrates Starynkiewicz. Four years later, the Church of St. Lawrence was built on its premises. Initially, due to very low fees for burials, it was a cemetery for the poor, and even the homeless were buried there. Over time, the situation changed, and in the inter-war period representatives of many social classes were buried there. Notable figures buried in Bródno Cemetery include politician and major ideologist and thinker on the subject of Polish nationalism, Roman Dmowski (1864-1939), the Metropolitan of Warsaw, Aleksander Kakowski (1862-1938) and famous singer Mieczysław Fogg (1901-1990).
