  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Nice old fasion design.
  • Even though it is always a slightly macabre thing to say about a cemetery, this is a beautiful place with lots of history.
  • I wouldn't say I was impressed. Maybe I missed something but besides the nice entrance building and the beautiful nature its an ordinary cemetery. I am sure there are some interesting sculpture but I guess you have to search for it. Winter is not ideal for visiting plus you have to a bus up there if not into trekking!
  • Well worth the visit.
