(500 reviews on the web)
Cemetery Landmark
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.

  • Eyrie graveyard at the top of an awful climb. Got there sweating and breathless to find a young lady sitting reading a book requesting 20K for access to mausoleum. Didn't bother. Tacky? Or maybe it's ...  more »
  • Lovely walk with quite a few steps but manageable. The views from the top are beautiful. The Cemetary is very interesting and the inside of the mausoleum is incredible.  more »
  • This is set very high above the town but the effort required to climb to it is worth it. Beautifully maintained. The views from here are excellent too which is an added bonus.  more »
