Former Cemetery: A Place For Dog Lovers And Drug Users

In Czechs, Life on August 11, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , ,

There once used to be a cemetery and there are still people buried there, although the whole place was, well, re-cultivated. But now it is a park where people walk their dogs and where drug users meet, the Brnensky denik daily discovered.

One can find the place in Bystrc borough in Brno. Some locals formed a committee that wants to solve the problem. Since there are still people buried there, they would like the the place to serve at least as a regular park, not as a dungeon with overgrown trees and bushes.

Satellite map here…as you can see, it is located among the famous ugly concrete panel apartment buildings…

What I don’t get is why liquidate a cemetery in the first place… Once it is “full” and no longer used, it can remain where it is…
