  • Mirogoj is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cemeteries I know. It is something between a monument and a park. Very nice on the outside, since it is a building that serves as input, which is partially covered with plants that change from green to red depending on time of year. Very showy. The two wings of the building are made of arches where celebrities are buried: politicians, scientists, writers, painters etc. Once inside the cemetery are rows and rows of tombs, very carefully, many monuments and all full of trees. Also there, in a prominent place, Franjo Tudman, first President of Republic Croatia, which led to the Croats to victory in the war of liberation of Croatia is aware. In his tomb there are always flowers and candles that Croats leave there, and in the feast of all Saints (a very celebrated party in Croatia) his grave and the surrounding area is always covered in candles.

  • This cemetery is not ordinary it is simple amazing and beautiful,Its structures and trees leaves you breathless  more »
  • Mirogoj is actually not really a place that must be visited. It is a beautiful old cemetery above Zagreb. He is surrounded by big walls and beautifully designed. Landscaped last resting places between the trees and shrubs can be found there.

  • 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
