During the history of man the burying ground had its role and meaning, depended on historical period, and type of society. In our culture complex of the cemetery is understood as a place of final separation of dead person from the society of living and also the place connected with a new special kind of relationship, which arise thanks to death of some close person. This place is still full of symbols, signs, information, and it is a presentation of values, attitudes towards the death and life. The paper deals with the problem of interpretation of cemetery boundaries, their meaning and role in contemporary countryside culture in Slovakia (regions Nitra, Hont, Horehronie, Liptov). The paper also analyses the borders within the cemetery itself, the segmentation of this place in accordance to ethnic, confessional, age, social differentiations.
