The Kiliya Cemetery

According to the International Jewish Cemetery Project, the Jewish cemetery was established in 1875. However the first readable tombstone photographed during the Kiliya Cemetery Project is from 1822. According to an article there would be graves dating from the XIV-XV centuries.

The last know burial is from 2014 so we assume that the Cemetery is still in use.

It is located in the North West part of the town in the region named "Mayaki".
There is no address to the Cemetery, but on the Google map, it can be read in Ukrainian: Mayak Street, and another one close by: Kvitkova Street.
