Mirogoj Cemetery

Mirogoj Cemetery (Aleja Hermanna Bollea 27,10000 Zagreb) – this is one of Zagreb’s free attractions:  this unique cemetery which takes up a good chunk of local real estate.  Due to its grand architecture, it’s considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe (its magnificent arcade was designed by German architect Herman Bolle).  Besides being the last resting place for many notable individuals (from certain local and Austrian figures from the 19th century to famed basketball player Dražen Petrović,, and Franjo Tudman – the first president of Croatia) the cemetery provides visitors with the opportunity to admire the artistic genius and talent of the great architect.
