Week of Discovering European Cemeteries 2022 will be dedicated to the unveiling of Artists’ resting places in the Kozala and Trsat cemeteries.
Week of Discovering European Cemeteries is the most important ASCE project that connects people and points out the heritage in our cemeteries. In Rijeka, the event was held for the first time in 2015, and during these years, our fellow citizens have recognized it as a new way to learn about the history of the city.
This year's theme: Artists’ resting places
The Week of Discovering European Cemeteries 2022, which will take place from 23 to 31 May, will focus on artists who found their final resting place in Rijeka's cemeteries.
The program began on Monday, May 23 at 11.30 a.m. with the opening of an exhibition on the city’s Promenade (Rijeka Korzo). The exhibition consist of 16 photographs of graves in the Kozala and Trsat cemeteries where artists of various profiles are buried.
On the same day, at 6 pm, a tour of the Kozala Cemetery was held under the expert guidance of art historian Daina Glavočić. During the educational walk the graves of artists buried in this cemetery were visited.
A tour of the Trsat Cemetery, also under the guidance of Daina Glavočić, will be held on Wednesday, May 25, at 6 p.m.
Other days are intended for individual visits to the Kozala and Trsat cemeteries with the help of a special brochure prepared specifically for this year's Week of Discovering European Cemeteries.
