Zeitenlik Serbian Cemetery in Thessaloniki
The pieces for the mausoleum and about 2'000 stone crosses were made, and to trim so much stone it took until 1933. Cypresses (seeding from Hilandar) were planted all over to act as "eternal guards to the fallen freedom fighters".
The daughter got now married herself and since there are no male descendants it's a bit of a question who will take care of the facility in the future.
The rest of the pictures are on my Flickr Collection here.
Unfortunately we didn't have much time for visiting Thessaloniki this time. But my friend MsLarsen visited the city earlier this year and made fantastic pictures and I'd like to share them here:
