The Vienna Central Cemetery is located on the southern border of Vienna, in the district Simmering. With the area of 2.5 km2 it is the second largest cemetery in Europe. The total length of roads and paths is about 100 km. It was opened in 1874 when the population of Vienna reached one million. More than 3 million people were buried there. For orientation in the cemetery area serves information at the entrance. It is also possible to buy an exact cemetery plan. In addition to walking, you can also use bicycles. People with disabilities can use cars and every half hour the area is also covered by a bus operated by the city. The multiculturalism of Vienna is also reflected in the fact that in addition to Roman Catholic believers, Protestants, Orthodox Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Mormons and Coptic Egyptians are buried in the cemetery. Many famous people - musicians, engineers, scientists or politicians have honorary graves. The Vienna Central Cemetery with many architectural sights and with the pleasant atmosphere, is suitable for rest and reflection outside the noise of the city. Steve
