The Mirogoj City Cemetery (pronounced [mîrɔɡɔːj], Croatian: Gradsko groblje Mirogoj), also known as Mirogoj Cemetery (Croatian: Groblje Mirogoj), 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; irreligious graves can all be found. In the arcades are the last resting places of many famous Croats.
The Mirogoj Cemetery was built on a plot of land owned by the linguist Ljudevit Gaj, purchased by the city in 1872, after his death. Architect Hermann Bollé designed the main building. The new cemetery was inaugurated on 6 November 1876.

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.
