Mirogoj Cemetery

Mirogoj Cemetery, Zagreb, 10000

The Basics

Created in the late 19th-century by renowned architect Hermann Bollé, Mirogoj Cemetery is celebrated as one of Europe’s more beautiful graveyards, making it a popular attraction for Zagreb visitors. To explore the property's manicured grounds, monuments, and mausoleums, it's most convenient to take a citywide tour. If you prefer independent travel, it's about a 15-minute bus ride from the Zagreb Cathedral, and you can visit both in one day. The cemetery is free to visit.

Zagreb City Tour including visit to Mirogoj Cemetery and Funicular Ride
We had an excellent tour and Petra was an excellent guide. We don’t have much time in Zagreb and feel we got a great overview of the city. We were fortunate enough to be the only couple on the tour and she tailored the tour to our interest. We would highly recommend this tour.

How to Get There

Zagreb city tours, walking tours, and even some seasonal tours stop by the popular Mirogoj Cemetery, though public transit is also workable. The 106 bus is the most convenient route if you're traveling from Zagreb Cathedral. Alternatively, you can take the 14 tram from Zagreb's main square to the Gupceva Zvijezda stop. For a scenic return trip, hike from the Mirogoj Cemetery toward Zagreb's Upper Town; the downhill stroll is about 40 minutes.

When to Get There

Though there's really no bad time to visit Mirogoj Cemetery, arriving in spring means you can enjoy the landscaped greenery in bloom, while autumn brings changing leaves. Local families typically come to decorate family graves at least twice yearly, on Remembrance Day and All Saints' Day. Visit in the days following these two holidays to enjoy the graves and memorials adorned with flowers.

Visiting the Zagreb Cathedral This elegant, neo-Gothic worship space is a top Zagreb attraction, with towering spires that make the cathedral the tallest building in the country. The interior—known for its stained glass windows and centuries-old frescoes—is well worth a visit for architecture fans. Zagreb Cathedral is located in the Upper Town, and the church is free to visit. The popular attraction is a stop on most sightseeing tours, and offers daily mass.
