The Dubina Cemetery

The Dubina Cemetery is in dense shade. This is in stark contrast to other Catholic cemeteries in the area where trees are weeded out before they can establish roots. Some trees here originate directly from iron-fenced enclosures and the shade is so dense that undergrowth is not a problem.

According to Richard Zelade's excellent book Hill Country - "The Czech legend at the [Dubina] cemetery entrance translates roughly as: "Here lies a large number of us who were sent to God. If you don't want to pray for us, then leave us alone."
