Jewish Cemetary

Jewish Cemetary (listed since 1967)

The Jewish Cemetery is located on top of Tauk Bahqe hill, near Velania. It dates back to the 19th century. At that time, Pristina's Jewish Community had about 1,500 members. The cemetery was put under protection in 1967. Back then, it counted 57 tomb stones. Today, the cemetery is in a desolate state. Surrounded by a metal fence, isolated tombstones are scattered between thorny bushes and high grass.
