Your experience


At the Stan Ioan Memorial Pătraș you can see life (and death) through the eyes of the man who formed and carved a series of colorful, bizarre tombstones for people he had never seen before. Then visit the Merry Cemetery itself.

Stan Ioan Pătraş was born in 1908 in Săpânța as the son of a family of wood sculptors. He turned his hand to carving poems on gravestones, but then painted figures in colours made of natural pigments on them. Explore his house and see his art in the making.

In the fun graveyard itself, you can approach each and every thought-provoking gravestone. See how the main color blue was used against other symbol colors. Green for life, yellow for fertility, red for passion and black for... well, death.

Before he died in 1977, Pătraş made almost 700 gravestones in the two cemeteries of Săpânța, which were later called the funny cemetery. Find out who died from drinking, who was hit by a taxi and who was the village flirt - all by studying the pictures he created.

It's one of those rare times when you might be smiling in a cemetery.
