  • Cemetery at the Kozej Gate (nem. Gaistor-Friedhof) is a cemetery in the historic part of Bratislava. Its current location defines the streets of Palisades, Šulekova and Bradlianska. In the cemetery at the Kozej Gate, he found a number of important personalities of the cultural, social and scientific, economic and religious life of Bratislava. Their graves decorate the tombstones often of high artistic or historical value from the most famous Bratislava artists, for example. Alojza Rigele, Farňa Gibalu, Ladislava Majersky Ludwiga Macka and others. The more familiar people buried in the cemetery deserve attention for example. Music composer Ján Levoslav Bella, inventor of John Bahýl, publisher and merchant of Books Gustav Hackenast, theatre director Miloš Pietor, architects Christian Ludwig and Jindřich Merganc, educator Ján Pravdoľub Bella, lawyer and nationalist Vendelin Bohboj Kutlík, historian Ján Kvačala, physician, pioneer of radiation therapy in Slovakia Louis Valach, a prominent historian of Elizabeth Günter-Mayerová, artistic photographer Martin Martinček, we find the gender tomb of the aristocracy, the leading of Bratislava Wine, trade, handicraft families, evangelical clerks, soldiers, townspeople, politicians and ministerial officials. Monument built in honor of the major Slovak music composer John Levoslava The Bellu, which is buried in the Evangelical cemetery, is located in the grass islets at the crossroads of Šulena and Novilluminska. The author of the monument is Akad. Q. Vojtech Basďura (1967).

  • The last place of rest lying in the historic part of the capital. In this cemetery, there was no one significant or ordinary person. Whether from a cultural, social or artistic life. The places of last rest are also decorated with tombstones from major then creators, which can be mentioned in Reigele or Majersky. A lot of them will certainly be captivated without regard to the author, whether the person for whom the creation was intended. The place has its charm even during the weekday, but personally I would recommend it to visit sometime in the evening, or not to point in the winter when the atmosphere is all the more magical.
