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.

  • Visit was part of our tour package. Interesting architecture but I'm not that in to cemeteries. Took a few nice pictures but I personally wouldn't go out of my way to see it. 
  • We took a tour with our Croatia tour guide. This is a unique beautiful cemetery. It is accessible by city bus. Don't miss it. One of my favorite stops for the architecture. 
  • From the bus stop is near the our Lady of the assumption Cathedral (first is) went by bus No. 106. Taught in tell me once you reach taxi and asked, should I take the right place. A vast cemetery in September with the first already some trees remained that had colored leaves the impression.

  • A 10-minute ride north of the city centre (or a 30-minute walk through leafy streets) takes you to one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe, sited at the base of Mt Medvednica.
  • If you are fun of architecture really must see. Also interesting to observe on 01.11. every year. Marvelous.
  • It's a very peaceful place. It looks like a well preserved ancient castle but actually it's a cemetery from the last century. It's a very beatiful place. Mirogoj is the one place that effected me the most in Zagreb.
  • Every time I visit Zagreb I make sure that I visit Mirogoj, always discover something new.
  • Preljepo
