All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day

The two days after Halloween are All Saints' Day on November 1st and All Souls' Day on the 2nd. We visited Rakowicki Cemetery, which is the largest in Krakow. We arrived at dusk and there were thousands of candles illuminating the graves as far as the eye could see. Many families had come to pay respect to their loved ones that had passed on. Tonight was definitely a very moving and surreal experience.
