Print page to PDF Cemetery at ul. Lipowa

Adres: Lipowa 16
Miejscowość: Lublin
The establishment of the oldest Lublin necropolis was connected to the regulation of the Commonwealth Police Committee of 1792 stating that the overfilled church cemeteries were to be relocated outside the city. Land bought from Bridgettines sisters at the western boarders of the city constituted the new location. The area was planted with lime trees, therefore the cemetery began to be known as 'Pod lipkami' or 'Lipki' (Pol. lipa, lipka - lime tree). Hence the name of the street where it is located – Lipowa. The cemetery complex consists of a Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical and the newest – military part. Many distinguished personalities with great contributions to the city and the country rest here, such as Hieronim Łopaciński, Idzi Radziszewski, Karol Rudolf Vetter, Emil Plage and the Hess family. In the central part of the columbarium located within the military cemetery, an urn was placed with soil from the place of death of the great Lublin poet - Józef Czechowicz. Many gravestones showcase excellent quality sculptural craftsmanship. Here, we should mention the headstone sculpture commemorating the Bobrowski family from Snopków (from 1888) by the great artist - Bolesław Syrewicz.
