A UNESCO world heritage site, this was nice to walk around - just be careful you don't run into any funerals.

You dont need to have a grave to visit here, it is a great place to visit just for the beuty of the buildings and the nature between the fields of graves. Easy accessible by subway

A cemetery that doesn't look or seem as a cemetery. It is a wonderful garden with big trees and hough lawns. Very peaceful, beautiful surroundings The grave of Greta Garbo is in a very, very special place.

One of Stockholms best kept secrets, if you can call a world heritage site a secret. Skogskyrkogården is drawn by Swedish master architect Asplund who is also behind the royal library. The place truly awakes stuff inside. It's epic, emotional, beautiful, historical and peaceful, yet disturbing. I love it.
