Sometimes I realize that after more than three years in Cologne there are still a lot of places that I don't know. Even if they are pretty close. So I decided to take little trips to all the pretty places here. And I'll take you with me.
Last week I went to Melatenfriedhof. It's a really big, historical cemetary within walking distance from where I live so as the weather was really lovely I took a walk there and just wandered around. It's a wonderful place, lots of trees, it's very quiet and peaceful although it's in the middle of the city. I loved it there, but let me show you:
There are lots of older graves and they look as if they have been there forever
Others look really nice, people really invested a lot of time to make this place a nice one, not a sad one.
These ones must have been expensive, too
Look at how great this looks in the sunshine!
I'll definately go there again, maybe in winter, I think this place looks nice when it snows, too.
What about you? Are there places in your hometown that you have never been to? How do you like old cemetaries?
