Mirogoj Cemetery Archways

I believe the Lonely Planet described Zagreb’s Mirogoj Cemetery as one of the most beautiful in Europe. Who am I to disagree with their assessment?

The most unique feature of this peaceful place is the lengthy arcade that stretches across the cemetery and shelters the tombs and monuments from the elements. I visited on a drizzly day and these arches kept me dry while I admired the solemn beauty of the cemetery.
