Unique natural burial ground opens in Prague

A unique natural burial ground named Les vzpomínek (Forest of Memories) has been opened in the Prague district of Ďáblice. People can bury the ashes of their loved ones under trees at the site, which will not feature headstones. The director of the Prague Cemeteries Administration, Martin Červený, said it would allow for environmentally friendly burial in a natural setting not reminiscent of a normal cemetery.
