  • The Central Cemetery, a beautiful cemetery, whether simply for a sparrow to look at the Beautiful Tombs, or simply the tranquility to conviviures! A beautiful cemetery, with very beautiful, manicured graves and just nice quiet, an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle and the noise of the city!

  • Europe biggest graveyard, somehow fascinating, even beautiful and strange altogether. Visit the graves of famous people, musicians and politicians. Some places however remind me about Michael Jackson’s music video thriller. It’s so huge you might use a bicycle or car to move around.
  • a peaceful staning place, with well maintainess in the front yard, worth to visit from Tor.2
