Largest crematorium in Europe

image

Today we visited Krematorium Strašnice, it is the largest crematorium in Europe in terms of the area it covers. This time we were accompanied by our Czech connection Michaele (with many Thanks to Ivo Jelinek for connecting us) who helped us out with some interpreting and her pleasant interest.

We were kindly received by the manager mr. Anděl who showed us the building and its dayly workings. This crematorium is truely impressive. Although the crematorium breathes monumentality this is pleasantly countercted by the social way the people of Prague have integrated it in everyday life.
