Aleja Hermanna Bollea 27 · interesting places nearby
A 10-minute ride north of the city centre (or a 30-minute walk through leafy streets) takes you to one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe, sited at the base of Mt Medvednica. It was designed in 1876 by Austrian-born architect Herman Bollé, who created numerous buildings around Zagreb. The majestic arcade topped by a string of cupolas looks like a fortress from the outside, but feels calm and graceful on the inside.
The lush cemetery is crisscrossed by paths and dotted with sculptures and artfully designed tombs. Highlights include the grave of poet Petar Preradović and the bust of Vladimir Becić by Ivan Meštrović.
Take bus 106 from the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
