10. Romania has one of the happiest cemeteries on Earth

Tucked away in a tiny village of Maramures county, near the Ukrainian border, the Merry Cemetery, is not only a very unique burial site, but also an open-air museum and a tourist attraction in its own right.

Each tombstone features a witty poem depicting the person’s life and the way he/she died. To give you an idea, here is a funny epitaph roughly translated by Wikipedia:

Under this heavy cross
Lies my poor mother in-law
Three more days should she have lived
I would lie, and she would read (this cross).
You, who here are passing by
Not to wake her up please try
Cause’ if she comes back home
She’ll criticize me more.
But I will surely behave
So she’ll not return from grave.
Stay here, my dear mother in-law!
