Orthodox cemetery

Orthodox cemetery

The Orthodox cemetery in Bratislava is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Slovakia. It contains over 7,000 graves. The cemetery was established by the city’s Jewish community in 1845, and after 1873 was used by the Orthodox Jewish community.

After decades of neglect, the Jewish Community of Bratislava is gradually rehabilitating the compound, which is used to this day as a burial site for our community. Many important personalities of Bratislava’s Jewish life, including the rabbis Ketav Sofer (1815-1871) and Shevet Sofer (1842-1906), are buried here. The cemetery chapel, constructed in 1928-1929 from the designs of architects Fridrich Weinwurm and Ignác Vécsei, is an important example of interwar architecture in Slovakia.
