Merry Cemetery

Introducing

The Merry Cemetery is famous for its colourful tombstones with paintings that describe, in a poetic and original way, scenes from the lives of the people who are buried there.

The cemetery’s origins are linked with the name of Stan Ioan Pătraş, a local artist who sculpted the first tombstone crosses. In 1935, Pătraș carved the first epitaph and, as of the 1960s, more than 800 of such oak wood crosses came into sight.
