The Mirogoj Cemetery is a cemetery park that is considered to be among the more noteworthy landmarks in the City of Zagreb. Catholic, Orthodox, Muslim, Jewish, Protestant, Latter Day Saints and irreligious graves can all be found. In the arcades are the last resting places of many famous Croatians.
History and time period
The cemetery was created in 1876 on a plot of land owned by the linguist Ljudevit Gaj. The construction of the arcades, the cupolas, and the church in the entryway began in 1879. Work was finished in 1929.
