Neolog cemetery

The Neolog cemetery belongs to the Jewish Community of Bratislava, which is a successor of both Jewish communities that operated in our city until World War II. The smaller Neolog community was a  splinter group from the mother community. The Neologs maintained separate institutions, a synagogue and educational institutions, as well as also their own Chevra Kadisha. In 1873, the Chevra Kadisha purchased this lot on the road leading to Karlova Ves.

The cemetery contains about 2,000 graves in an elongated rectangular compound. The compound spreads across a slight southwest facing slope, of which the upper part is steeper. Graves are divided into three sections; several prominent tombs are located in the front part. A  separate section for the Kohanim spreads between sections II and III. Here you can find the graves of prominent personalities from Slovak culture, including those of architects Eugen Bárkány (1885-1967) and Artur Szalatnai-Slatinský (1891-1961).

Neolog cemetery

A cemetery chapel is located in the southern part of the compound, near the entrance. A simple freestanding building, it has a tri-partite façade and ceremonial hall in the center. This building, with its Rundbogenstil windows, recalls the historicist architecture of the 19th century. The north façade of the building features a porch which faces the cemetery. Here you will find a memorial plaque to soldiers who fell during World War I.

The cemetery is a listed monument under no. 10625/0 in the General List of Monuments.
