None More Beautiful

Arcade in the Mirogoj Cemetery

There is not a more beautiful cemetery park anywhere that I’ve seen than the Mirogoj Cemetery in Zagreb, Croatia. It’s an urban memorial garden that draws thousands of visitors and citizens. It was started in the 1870s and competed in the 1920s.

It’s stunningly beautiful – and it’s used, for important Croatians and by ordinary Croatians.

It’s a gorgeous space for humans and a great model for an urban cemetery garden.
