Lychakiv Cemetery in Lviv, Ukraine

Not many travelers are intrigued by cemeteries but if you’re in Lviv, Ukraine this is a must see. The cemetery has an abundance of interesting monuments not unlike the famed Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires. This extensive necropolis is essentially an open-air museum. Imitative sculptures carved with meticulous detail guard graves like epic stone sentinels. Statues of angels dressed in fine, flowing garments decorate some graves, while big burly men over others.
