A unique place, the Merry Cemetery is proof that graveyards don’t have to be cold and gloomy. Merry is dotted with beautifully painted crosses, which are decorated with satirical epitaphs that tell the stories of the deceased. A creation of the artist Stan Ioan Pătraș that was carried out by his apprentice Dumitru Pop Tincu, the cemetery displays the Dacian belief that death is only a passage to a better life.
