The St. Nicholas Cemetery is a Roman Catholic cemetery in the old town of Bautzen, which has existed since 1455. It is located in the ruins of the former Uhyster Church and its surroundings in front of the Mückaer Tor on the northern edge of the old town, high above the Spree and not far from Bautzen Castle. The church itself was destroyed during the siege of Bautzen by the Saxon army in 1620 during the Thirty Years' War. Since 1745, the ruins themselves have also been used as a cemetery. Since 1852, there has been a small chapel in the St. Nicholas Cemetery for dreary evenings and funeral services.
