Rasos Cemetery (Lithuanian: Rasų kapinės, Polish: Cmentarz na Rossie) is an old cemetery in city of Vilnius, Lithuania.

Founded in 1769 by Bazyli Miller, the mayor of Vilnius, in the place of an ancient pagan temple. He was also the first person to be buried there. It received the name after the surrounding borough of Rasos. In 1801 a chapel and a belltower were built. After 1844 the cemetery received a new, neo-gothic shrine. It was built by Józef Bohdanowicz, a local priest, and Jan Waszkiewicz, professor at Vilnius University. In 1920 a small military cemetery was built near the entrance for the soldiers who died in the city during the Polish-Bolshevik War. It was rebuilt in 1935-1936 by Wojciech Jastrzębowski, who also made a project of Piłsudski's heart's tombstone.

Until September 18, 1939, when the Red Army entered the city, a honorary guard of three soldiers stood there at all times. Three unknown soldiers who refused to give up their arms to the Soviets in 1939 were shot on the spot and are now buried next to Marshal Piłsudski's heart. Part of the cemetery contains graves of Polish Home Army soldiers, who fell during the Second World War. Their graves, demolished after World War II, were rebuilt by the funds of Republic of Poland in 1993.
