Abstract

Nowadays, cemeteries are becoming interesting tourist destinations and places of interest for domestic citizens or chance travellers who, by visiting cemeteries, wish to gain more insight into the city they are visiting. It is through the tombstones that cemeteries offer a plethora of diverse information about their city and the inhabitants who had built them. The gravestones keep memories about religion, lettering, language or wealth and power, as well as the many artistic styles throughout the graveyards history. Between many layers of reading the tomb thematic, one specific layer regards the deceased, their lives, positions and professions, as well as their society, origin, religion, nationality... The Rijeka cemeteries of Kozala and Trsat offer a vast range of such elements. This text shows one of the possible choices: the graves of the significant doctors (dentists, pharmacists, medical scientists).


Key words: physicians; cemetery; tombstone; Rijeka.
