Mirogoj Cemetery - Review
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
The biggest and most epic cemetery I've seen in my life. There are normal graves and also soldier memorials, it's completely quiet there and almost no people. After walking there for 30 minutes or so, my friend and I were just quiet as we were taking it all in. Take the bus from Kaptol (right next to the cathedral), from there it takes about 15 minutes to get to the cemetery.
Its serenity is only matched by its sheer size. A little out of the way but bus connectivity is great so definitely worth a couple hours of your time.
Beautiful necropolis. Many old crypts and modern graves.
Beautiful cementary where you can enyoy peace and birds singing.
Mirogoj is a beautiful cemetery, very peaceful and the buildings are lovely, wrapped in vines and with arches of beautiful trees.
