About
The cemetery is as sacred for Kihnu people as the church. You go there quietly and never after the sun has set so you don't disturb the dead. Useful information!Famous Captain Enn Uuetoa or Kihnu Jonn, whose remains were brought from Denmark to Kihnu in 1992, is buried near the cemetery gates. Carpenter Karl Jerkwelt, a man from Saaremaa who worked on Kihnu Jonn's last ship Rock-City, is buried next to him.

Metal crosses fill the space amidst the pine trees and sand. Dry stone walls will let you know you have arrived. Watch for biting ants.

Kihnu Jõnn is the island's most famous historical person who is buried in the cemetery there. The cemetery is old, and there are many disordered graves.
