Mirogoj Cemetery, Zagreb

4.6
#4 of 18 in Historic Sites in Zagreb
Mirogoj Cemetery features elaborate arcades, pavilions, and tombs. The architect Hermann Bollé designed the main building in 1876, which was finished in 1929. Admire the entrance, which is overgrown with ivy and looks like a citadel welcoming visitors. Walk the cemetery's lanes and look for the final resting places of many famous Croatians, as well as Austro-Hungarians, and Yugoslavs. The cemetery is also home to many sculptures by famous Croatian artists, such as Ivan Mestrovic and Antun Augustincic.

  • Stunning construction, a little outside the centre but well worth the bus ride to visit it. That it doesn’t cost anything is just a bonus.  more »
  • My favourite meditation space. A spec where you can admire Herman Bolle's arcades, see many beautiful tombstones, sculptures, enjoy nice air and green trees all around you.  more »
  • Despite being a cemetery, it is very pretty and unique, it has many famous people buried, as Prime Minister after the war. It is walled. Buried persons of different religions.

  • 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.
  • This may sound a bit weird, but Mirogoj is one of the most beautiful cemetaries I've seen in Europe. The combination of the wonderful archades, where many of the Croatian greats are burried, the nature and the art in the form of old sculptures and interesting tombstones make it one of the most interesting places in the city. Seriously, if you find yourself in Zagreb, don't miss the Mirogoj cemetary!
  • Monumental Zagreb graveyard where a lot of croatian greates have been buried. Clean, peaceful and beutiful. Outside you see mysterious domes guarding the entrance, but inside they turn into beautiful cascades decorating the resting places of many important historical personas. Definetly a recommendation for a peaceful spiritual stroll.
  • Is a graveyard, i dont like them
