Zeitenlik Serbian Cemetery in Thessaloniki




The allied military cemetery Zeitenlik (Зејтинлик) is where the graves 
of the soldiers who died on the Salonika front in WW1 are, it's near
 the center of Thessaloniki on a former Olive plantation on Langada 
Street.
On the way
 from the Greek 
Seaside back 
to Serbia we
 stopped by,
 to see the
 Serbian 
Cemetery 
(in the near
 there are also
 the French, 
English, Italian
 and Russian
 Cemeteries). 
The Greek 
Government 
bought the land where the cemeteries would be located and ceded it to the allies
 usufruct, while the maintenance of the cemeteries would be left to the single 
governments of the countries. Greece gave the land for free released all materials
 and work from customs duties and taxes.
