The old Jewish Cemetery of Kolin is on the west of the historic city square of Kolin. It is an irregular polygon boardered by the streets Na Petrine, Slunecni, Prazska, Kmochova and Nad Zastavkou. A path going from east to west and tranversing the entire cemetery, joins the gate on Kmochova Street to that of Slunecni Street. The cemetery is locked with a key which according to the instructions written on the gates, is at the disposal of visitors in the Regional Museum in the City Square. This museum also organizes the maintenance of the cemetery by volunteers.
