Information

All Saints’ Day is held on the 1st of November. Preparations to this holiday usually start about 2 weeks in advance when people visit cemeteries to prepare graves for this holiday. During that time it is easy to encounter traffic jams near cemeteries and people tidying and cleaning tomb stones. The 1st on November is also a bank holiday in Poland during which people meditate on briefness of human life. Catholics visit the graves of their family members and friends. They bring with them flowers (usually chrysanthemums) and special colourful candles. They also pray for the souls of the dead. Moreover, there are Catholic services at cemeteries. It is also a day of family meetings. We also recommend visiting cemeteries after dark when they are enlightened by thousands of candles and have real supernatural mood. Tourists visiting Poland during this time should be prepared for denser traffic as people often visit cemeteries even a few hundred kilometres from their homes.
