The town of Cieszyn was divided in two after the second world war. One half remained in Poland the other became Czechoslovakia. Each year on All Saints Day, November 1st, the people from the Czech half of the city were permitted to visit the graves etc on the other Polish half and vice versa. Now both countries are part of The European Union and people can visit the other part of the city at any time without difficulty.
