  • It is recommended that you aim for the time of autumn leaves. It was very beautiful. You can go by bus by one transfer. There is no hesitation, so if you want to go sightseeing Zagreb, please do so.

  • There are beautiful arcades and domes, and I thought it would be a good place to enjoy a walk surrounded by green trees. To get there, take bus stop KAPTOL in front of the cathedral to get off in front of Mirogoi Cemetery in about 10 minutes by bus 106 or 203.

  • 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.
