Skogskyrkogården

Lonely Planet review

One of Stockholm’s more unusual attractions, Skogskyrkogården is an arrestingly beautiful cemetery set in soothing pine woodland. Designed by the great Erik Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz, it’s on the Unesco World Heritage list and famed for its functionalist buildings. Famous residents include Stockholm screen goddess Greta Garbo. A visitor guide is available on the website in several languages. To get here, take the tunnelbana to T-Skogskyrkogården.
