This last resting place of people of different religions was designed by the famous architect Hermann Bolle, who also lead the reconstruction of Zagreb Cathedral. He made the cemetery into a beautiful park, ideal for walk and reflection, and intertwined with rich vegetation.
You can sense the greatness.
Here are buried many significant people from Croatia, stretching long into the past, such as Ljudevit Gaj, great Croatian writers like Miroslav Krleža and August Šenoa, the composer Vatroslav Lisinski, the painter Edo Murtić, the first Croatian president Franjo Tuđman, and many others.
In addition to its attractive architecture, Mirogoj is a real art gallery in the open air as well. Surrounded by nature, take a walk through the park with its many art works by famous Croatian sculptors like Dušan Džamonja, Antun Augustinčić, Ivan Meštrović and Vanja Radauš. This is a truly special experience.
The easiest way to get to Mirogoj from Hotel Dubrovnik is by bus 106 from Kaptol, in front of Zagreb Cathedral.
