All Saint’s Day
All Saints’ Day, Also known as Allhallows or Hallowmas is a festival which has been celebrated in Poland and the rest of the Catholic world for many centuries. All Saints Day is a national holiday, and a day when people all over Poland visit the graves of loved ones and to place candles and flowers on graves. Candles are placed on the graves to help souls finding their way through the darkness. The day after All Saints Day, All Souls Day is set aside to pray for the souls who have yet to find their way to Heaven. The view of milions of candles in transparent, coloured vases and the atmosphere that laid you into a parallel world is a thing that you can not miss. Step through the Gothic gateway of Rakowicki Cemetery to see probably the most incredible lagoon of glowing colours of All Saint’s Day in Cracow.
