Podgorski Cemetery in Krakow

Podgorski Cemetery was founded shortly after village was given city status in 1784. Its unusual feature is that it does not have separate sections for Protestants and Roman Catholics. It was enlarged in 1838 and 1895 but as it still had problems to fit new graves, a new cemetery was created nearby in 1900.


The old Podgorski Cemetery was heavily destroyed by Germans during occupation of Second World War. One of best known individuals who are buried here was Edward Dembowski – national hero who died during unsuccessful Uprising of Krakow in 1846.
