Strange Graves
In Belu Cemetery there are a few strange graves with strange inscriptions, signs or details. It is usually not allowed to take photos inside the Cemetery, but Adrian had the permission of the Bucharest authorities, as well as the adminstrator, Mr Virgil Rotaru. We are grateful for his generosity.

Soon, Adrian and Alexandru will ask the University of Architecture to make a special agreement with the Mayor of Bucharest to allow students to make studies inside the cemetery for funeral art details, as a good learning experience for them. This national treasure is not well promoted as a historical monument.
