A really nice place to spend some time when in Zagreb. Even with a rainy weather we had a great time walking through it. The building is stunning and looks beautiful.
The cemetery is awesome! I’m not exaggerating when I say it is the most beautiful and impressive building of all Zagreb. You can take the bus 226 from the city centre and it’s only 10-15 minutes. The entrance is free and the cemetery is so big. Not only the building is beautiful but also many of the graves and monuments they have inside.
