Mirogoj Cemetery

Photos and description

Mirogoj cemetery was established in 1876 by the Austrian architect Hermann Bolle. The landmark of the cemetery are its entrance gate and arcades along the Western wall, where he found eternal peace of the rich and famous residents of the Croatian capital.

The cemetery looks like a sculpture Park: most of the gravestones made by famous Croatian sculptors such as Ivan Meštrović.
