The Valley Of The Kings




Theban Hills, Egypt

Secluded amidst this bone-dry scenery, the large necropolis was intended as the ultimate insurance policy of life eternal. These secretive tombs of New Kingdom pharaos were planned to preserve their mummies and funerary impedimenta for eternity.

Most tombs are being damaged by visitors' breath and poor ventilation, causing damaging fungus to develop, and are currently closed. Cameras are no longer allowed. Glad I visited the place years ago! :-)

This might be the most famous and disappointing tomb as it's just an empty chamber. All treasures are on display at the Cairo Museum and they are fabulous!

Old Jewish Cemetery



Prague, Czech Republic

The Old Jewish Cemetery was established in the first half of the 15th century and burials took place until 1787. It contains about 12,000 tombstones but, as several layers are placed on top of each other, the number of persons buried here is much greater.
