The cemetery which is two hundred years old bears lots of interesting life stories. Here lies the body of Kārlis Hūns (1830–1877), who was one of the most important Baltic artists during the 19th century, the pioneer of the historical genre-painting in Latvia. Resting places of such famous people as the founder of the Herrnhuter Congregation in Madliena – Andrejs Balodis, the wood sculptor Jānis Vērītis, and other deceased notable inhabitants of Madliena can be seen in Madliena Cemetery.
