Žale Cemetery, Ljubljana

#9 of 24 in Historic Sites in Ljubljana
Cemetery · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
An important monument of architectural and cultural heritage, Žale Cemetery contains the gravesites of many noted Slovenians, including that of architect Joze Plecnik. The cemetery's finest features remain its chapels, ornamental gates, and colonnades, the work of Plecnik. Plecnik himself is buried at the this site, so you can pay homage to him in the main area A. Plan my Ljubljana trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
