Podgórze Cemetery in Kraków on the eve of the All Saints' Day.

"Those of you expecting to have a wild week of kinky costume parties and rollicking Halloween revelry may be slightly shocked to see a rather sobering, sombre scene the evenings of November 1st and 2nd. Known nationally as All Saints' and All Souls' Day respectively (and respectfully, mind you), these two days of the calendar year are dedicated to prayer and paying tribute to the deceased by visiting their graves. In accordance with tradition, families all over Poland will make pilgrimages to the resting places of their relatives, tending the gravesites with a care that is truly touching, before laying wreaths, flowers and candles that will be kept lit throughout the length of the holiday. As night descends, the country's graveyards are aglow with the warm light of literally thousands of flickering candles, creating an eerie, incredibly evocative atmosphere that should not be missed by anyone with a heart that still beats. [...]

[Podgórze Cemetery] is a large, picturesque memorial park [that] is our favourite cemetery to visit over the holiday thanks to its basin-shape which creates an amphitheatre of coloured candlelight." (Kraków in Your Pocket, Oct-Nov 2009).
