Garden of Remembrance← Back to listing
The site for the “Garden of Remembrance” was not chosen by chance. It is a symbolic reference and legacy of the past. Formerly the city cemetery (people were buried here until 1956), the place has now been transformed into a park.
Small artefacts are irregularly set into the granite paving to commemorate times gone by: tiles and parts of the roof from the former famed spa, parts of yellow tiles from the since demolished Ještěd department store, a spool from the Warsaw Cinema, part of the rails from the first tram line in Liberec, a polished black prism from Liberec crematorium, and other artefacts.
Fragments of memories of bygone times in the city of Liberec. At the beginning of the path there is a board that names the artefacts. Visitors to the garden have to seek them out, discover them and remember those times for themselves.
