Long Description:
I found this cemetery, located near a village in the boundaries of Prague, while looking for a geocache. By the gate, one can see a commemorative sign referring to the inauguration of the cemetery, written both in Latin and Hebraic. The cemetery was founded in 1735 and the oldest tomb is from 1741. I couldn't find information about the latest one though nor any names (for that I would have to be able to read in Hebraic).

There are about 150 tombs in the grounds of this abandoned cemetery, most of them made of sandstone and limestone and a few in black granite.

The small mortuary house is still there, opened.
