Mirogoj cemetery
A place to lose your self for a couple of hours. First start at the bus station near the Cathedral of the Assumption. You are looking for the number 106 blue bus to mirogoj cemetery which is the last bus stop on the right hand side coming for the market. it will cost you 6 Croatian kuna (less an £1)each It takes approx 15min to get there. Once there the cemetery buildings are under rebuilding work, as they are falling down and large cracks have appeared. Key points are the main monuments and finding interesting story's. Like the childern of Kozara sad but powerful point in history you can see the monument on the far back wall to the left of the main buildings. There are alot of war monuments as well famous peaple from poet's to football stars. We did like the grave of Matija Ljubek Olympic athlete,we saw his grave and google his achievements. The thing that struck us most was the family plots with all generations of that family in the same plot and some members names inscribed with one date beside them. This mean they are still live spooky..

Of the great cemeteries of Europe, Mirogoj is second only to Central in Vienna. This place is gargantuan, meticulously kept, and filled with wonderful history and monuments. Much more than simply black stones, the plots here are fantastic, inspiring and grand. The main building, fronting the road, is truly a site, and suffered greatly in the recent earthquakes. We wish we had more than the 2-3 hours we spent here.

One of a kind cemetery in the world. I've bookmarked this place because of all the social media photos I've seen in the past. However, due to the recent earthquake in 2020, the buildings was badly damaged and considered unsafe. Everything was fenced in. You can't take a really good photo. You can still appreciate the ones that's not fenced in. You can still walk around the grounds and admire the beautiful sculptures and gravestones.

This is an amazing place to visit in Zagreb. The gothic architecture makes this place very unique .., you have many arcades to be lost & appreciate some of the beautiful sculptures and art place along te gravestones. Unfortunately due the last year earthquake you can walk inside some of them are not safe but the cemetery is not only arcades the grounds are very beautiful too. This location is one of the love one from the bloggers to take a nice picture. Highly recommend to visit

It’s not just a cemetery. Its old central part is full of beautiful sculptures made by Croatian famous artists. There is a brochure you can get or take a walking tour. It’s worth visiting, specially in autumn with red leaves on the arcades.

Beaut and large old cemetery that's lovely to stroll around in the early weekday mornings when no one else is really there. The parking out front near Srebrnjak is adequate for normal days, but not for holidays like All Saints Day.

To the reviewer a few down who was wondering why anyone would rate a cemetery on TA, uh...why did you rate Mirogoj? Moreso, though, cemeteries mean different things to different people, and visitors can get a feel for the history of a place, and the current atmosphere of a place (and the locals) by visiting cemeteries. At least I feel that way.

Our guide told us, it is the most important cemetery in Croatia. It is the resting place for so many famous Croatians. There are beautiful ornaments on the graves, and the entrance very impressive. Regardless of their religion famous Croatians might be buried here

It's a beautiful cemetery with a very impressive facade. The towers from outside look very beautiful. The main structure got damaged during the earth quake and is worked upon.
Many important Croatians are buried here.
A very peaceful place to spend half an hour.

Though it's a cemetery, you get more of a park vibe here. Very well maintained and so peaceful to wander about - even with small children.
