About Mirogoj Cemetery, Zagreb
Ljudevit Gaj, a major Croatian linguist commissioned one of Zagreb’s leading architects, Herman Bolle, to build him A Town of The Dead. And so this Neo-Renaissance wonder was born in 1879, with the construction of some magnificent arcades and a chapel when you visit, it doesn’t feel like you’re entering a graveyard, but a citadel. The architecture emphasizes balance and symmetry, and the beauty doesn’t stop at the building. Many important Croatians, Austro-Hungarians and Yugoslavs have been interred here, and their tombs are architectural marvels in their own right. The monuments to fallen soldiers are no less incredible. Peaceful, enchanting and solemn, the cemetery is one of Zagreb’s proudest possessions.

Mirogoj Cemetery, Zagreb Reviews - Write a Review
Even though it is always a slightly macabre thing to say about a cemetery, this is a beautiful place with lots of history.
I wouldn't say I was impressed. Maybe I missed something but besides the nice entrance building and the beautiful nature its an ordinary cemetery. I am sure there are some interesting sculpture but I guess you have to search for it. Winter is not ideal for visiting plus you have to a bus up there if not into trekking!
Mirogoj - cemetery: a common grave of 852 Serbian children from Kozara, 1942
Especially in autumn wonderful old historical cemetery of Zagreb
We didn't really know about this landmark until a local friend told us about it. At first, we thought it was a bit creepy to be going around a cementery... but there are some very impressive tomb tones, not entirely sure how respectful this may be... but there were plenty of other tourists as well. Lots of historical and important people buried here.
