Project Description

Mirogoj cemetery

Mirogoj cemetery

Mirogoj cemetery as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe is not only a burial place but also a beautiful park and an open art gallery.

 

Mirogoj cemetery with its majestic arcade topped by a string of cupolas looks like a fortress from the outside, but feels calm and graceful on the inside.

Herman Bollé designed the cemetery with its 500 meters long line of neo-renaissance arcades with 20 domes.

Walk through the cemetery’s lanes and you will see a touch of many other artists, sculptures by Ivan Meštrović, Antun Augustinčić, Dušan Damonja and Edo Murtić. Enjoy a relaxing stroll as you can soundly hear birds chirrup and feel gentle breeze among the densely planted trees.

You will notice all religions are respected here and get a hint of Croatian history by finding:

  • The Monument to Fallen Croatian Soldiers in World War One
  • The Monument to the Yugoslav National Hero
  • Memorial Cross to Croatian Home Guard Soldiers
  • Monument to the Victims of Bleiburg and the Way of the Cross
  • German military cemetery and
  • Wall of Pain (monument to Croatian victims of the Croatian War of Independence).
