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.

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.

  • Just delightful.......Easy to get to....Just the #106 bus from the Cathedral Square. We spent about 2 hours just wandering around that lovely and peaceful place.  more »
  • While not on the top of lists of places to visit in Zagreb, this was probably our highlight, apart from the city itself. The outside of the cemetery on the street side is a wall hundreds of feet long....  more »
  • Yes it is cemetery but is worth the visit to see the architecture, the wonderfull grounds and the amazing history of the graves and morseleums.  more »

  • 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!
  • We didn't really know about this landmark until a local friend told us about it. At first, we thought it was a bit creepy to be going around a cementery... but there are some very impressive tomb tones, not entirely sure how respectful this may be... but there were plenty of other tourists as well. Lots of historical and important people buried here.
  • One of the most beautiful cemeteries in the region. It is known especially for arcades - the part in which the famous Croatian people are buried, often in very peculiar graves. Certainly a place worth visiting during a visit to Zagreb.
  • A truly remarkable cemery, from a visitor point of view. Both the old and the new crypts are worth seeing. All in all, it was a nice quiet break from the crowded city of Zagreb.
  • The main Zagreb cemetery with beautiful architecture on the main entrance with Mirogoj arcade. It's not only a Christian but a cemetery for all religious groups. As a tourist place it's definitely worth a visit!
