From a distance, the cemetery in the eastern Serbian village of Smoljinac looks like a residential neighborhood eerily placed among graves.But once inside the grounds, after passing a section with the usual stone slabs, visitors find rows of small bungalows painted in pastel colors.These are the burial chapels of Smoljinac, cosy cabins with a furnished room inside, a storage place for wreaths and funeral paraphernalia, and the family crypt below.The village of Smoljinac, around 100 kilometers east of Belgrade, in a fertile plain along the Danube River, is home to around 1,800 people, many of them elderly.The cost of such a structure varies, but it is around 4,000 euros ($4,372.40) on average.No construction permit is sought from the municipality.
