Mirogoj Cemetery Reviews
Something not to miss when in zagreb, we walked to it from the center but it took us 45 minutes and the last part is quite steep up so i think the bus is a better option. It was a cold but sunny day..... more »

A really nice place to spend some time when in Zagreb. Even with a rainy weather we had a great time walking through it. The building is stunning and looks beautiful.
The cemetery is awesome! I’m not exaggerating when I say it is the most beautiful and impressive building of all Zagreb. You can take the bus 226 from the city centre and it’s only 10-15 minutes. The entrance is free and the cemetery is so big. Not only the building is beautiful but also many of the graves and monuments they have inside.
