On November 1st, TV Slovenia broadcast the programme about tourism »Na lepše«.
This edition was dedicated to present unusual and unknown type of tourism - cemetery tourism.
Cemeteries have a strange and macabre attraction for the curious and the morose. The dark symbolism of granite headstones, monuments, and crypts, viewed by some with sorrow and grief, is often no more than a part of a sightseeing itinerary for the general populace. But there is historical precedent of cemeteries as tourist destinations, and increasingly so. As older cemeteries run out of burial space, some of them are reinventing themselves as travel and tourism destinations.
In this context four members of ASCE were presented:
- Cemetery Pobrežje, Slovenia
- Cemetery Žale, Slovenia
- Cemetery Vienna, Austria
- Cemetery Varaždin, Croatia
