This Man Has Been Living In A Grave For The Last 15 Years


43-year-old Bratislav Stojanovic, has been living with the dead in a cemetery in Serbia.

He has been living in a grave for the past 15 years explaining that he is more scared of starving and of the living than of his dead neighbors.


A former construction worker, Stojanovic never had a steady job and lost his home many years ago after being unable to pay his debts – So, for the last 15 years, he has been living in a tomb of a family that died over 100 years ago.


He has made the tomb as cozy as possible and claims he feels at home in it. “It is dry and it is warm. It isn’t a palace but it is more comfortable than the street,” Bratislav says.


Stojanovic spends most of his day looking for candles and cigarette buts around the cemetery but has been struggling since the cemetery went out of use.

Bratislav finds foods in the city’s dumpsters but says it’s not as bad as you think. “It’s amazing what people throw away,” he said.
