Cemeteries of Tovste

  Original Catholic Cemetery  
  The original Catholic cemetery is located west of the town centre. About 1.6 hectares in area, the cemetery’s distinctive shape appears on a map of Tluste from 1858, and it is clearly marked on later maps of the town. Presumably burials took place there for well over one hundred years until it was closed in the 1960s.

  Modern Catholic Cemetery  
  Tovste’s modern Catholic cemetery was inaugurated in the 1960s, replacing the old cemetery on the other side of town that had served Ukrainian and Polish residents for at least one hundred years. The frequently-used burial site is very orderly and appears well maintained, with the inscriptions on most tombstones plainly visible.   more »

  Jewish Cemetery  
  A large Jewish cemetery is located on the outskirts of town, on the north side of the public road leading to Lisivtsi, next to the modern Catholic cemetery. The cemetery was established in the 17th century and was used by the local Hasidic community. Though burials no longer take place there, the grounds are relatively well maintained.   more »   Tovste's Jewish cemetery
