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.
