Mirogij: a cool and ancient cemetery in Zagreb, Croatia

 

The national cemetery of Zagreb, Mirogij is one of the old and architecturally significant cemeteries worth visiting when you visit a historic capital like Zagreb in Croatia. More than just an old and ancient cemetery, Mirogij was created by some of the country’s most significant artists, sculptors and architects to create a very stunning and art filled environment that celebrates the best of Croatian

Gorgeous buildings and sculpture can be found all over the cemetery with famous architects, artists and sculptors from Croatia creating some of the most magnificent tombs and monuments at Mirogij. The time I visited, fall colors were starting to appear in the landscape which made the visit even more special and colorful.

On the outside of the beautiful cemetery entrance are flower stalls with vendors creating some of the most beautiful floral arrangements I’ve ever seen at a cemetery. Large bouquets and stunning presentations seemed to be the norm, even exotic flowers were included in the arrangements – the surprising part is the most of these bouquets were fairly inexpensive to moderate in price range.

    Cemeteries really are amazing places for photography and usually no one around to bump into or to wait to move!

    Noel, I have been to Croatia and I have been to Zagreb, but I clearly missed visiting this beautiful cemetery. It’s almost strange, because I am normally one of those wired people who really enjoy visiting cemeteries in different countries and I would have really loved to see Mirogij. Thanks for giving me another good reason to visit Zagreb again soon… 🙂

    Hi Noel, Mirogij is indeed more than just an old cemetery. It’a beautiful architectural and art showcase. It even looks magical with the fall colors. I love your photos, especially of the flowers. Truly stunning.

    Noel, I love these photos, because I love going through cemeteries. My favorite shot is of the almost dried flowers. It was great meeting you at TBEX! Enjoy.
