Artist's Description

The Central Cemetery in Szczecin is a municipal cemetery in Szczecin, Poland. With an area of over 167,8 hectares and still expanding, it is the biggest cemetery in Poland and the second biggest cemetery in Europe.
The Central Cemetery in Szczecin was established in 1901.
Even though it has been operating for more than 100 years, it is still in use, and it is a legally protected national monument.
Wilhelm Meyer-Schwartau planned the layout of the new cemetery, and also designed a neo-romanesque central chapel and a monumental 77-meter-long main entrance gate. In total, there are eleven gates leading to the cemetery.

The Central Cemetery was intended as a picturesque park or memorial-garden. This goal was achieving through utilizing the natural features of the landscape. Most of the roads in the old part of the cemetery are curved and form a net of small circles. The main road, leading from the central gate to the central chapel, is flanked by old plane trees.
