  • The outer wall is impressive. At the site itself, it will soon get bored... Not like at the central cemetery in Vienna.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • The prestige cemetery in Zagreb. Most of the historical figures are buried there. Lovely designed and really nice for a peaceful walk.
  • 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.
  • The Mirogoj Cemetery is a cemetery park that is considered to be among the more noteworthy landmarks in the City of Zagreb. The cemetery inters members of all religious groups: Catholic, Orthodox, Muslim, Jewish, Protestant, Latter Day Saints and irreligious graves can all be found. In the arcades are the last resting places of many famous Croatians.
