Cavtat Cemetery, Cavtat

4.4
On a hilltop above town, Cavtat Cemetery overlooks the bay and its sleepy shore, covered in sprawling greenery. Due to the picturesque location of the site, the cemetery was chosen as the final resting place for numerous important people, such as scientist Baltazar Bogišić and the prominent Račić family. See their mausoleum, fashioned by Croatian master sculptor Ivan Meštrović, with depictions of the stages of life in its interior. Cavtat Cemetery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Cavtat Edition.

  • Walked up to cemetery all in woods looking out to the sea fantastic views make sure you bring a camera  more »
  • I don't intentionally seek out cemeteries to visit, but this one was part of the scenic walk around the island and offered a great vantage point of the sea.  more »
  • It's a bit of a climb to get to but the views are stunning and well worth the effort. You can see Dubrovnik from here and the cemetery is very well maintained.  more »
