Old Cemetery in Görlitz

 

 

Görlitz, in the southeast of eastern Germany, is renowned for it´s beautifully restored old town. The city hardly suffered any damage from WWII and is considered one of the best preserved historic town ensembles in Germany. As a contrast to the tidy and neat medieval dreamland stands one of the towns cemeteries. Perched along a hillside behind St. Nikolai church, this old charmingly run-down cemetery tries to conserve times long gone. If it weren´t a cemetery one could say it´s charme is somewhat morbid.

This tomb lost all of it´s side walls. Perhaps there were even just windows - hard to say.
