Most of the ascending roads from the center of Zagreb to the slopes of Medvednica lead to one place. This is not the place where we are running to, this is not the place you would wish for someone, it is not even the place we want to reach just right now. Still, this is the place that entices us with irresistible power, perhaps even with curiosity, a place that symbolizes peace and freedom in a complet and final manner. At least when earthly life is in question. This place is the central Zagreb cemetery - Mirogoj. Why would Mirogoj be the place we would like to see? Unless we rmember the closest and loved ones who are no longer among us? Well, Mirogoj is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe and much more than the last resting place. Mirogoj is also a beautiful green park and outdoor gallery. Mirogoj is a place where we can escape from the city crowd in the shade of a centuries-old trees, a place where we can steal our daily dose of peace and release of everyday tensions. Mirogoj was built in a historicist style that borrowed styles from the past to create this unique architectural work whose symbolism does not lose value over the time. The works of Hermano Bollo were often disputed and criticized, but not Mirogoj, which was officially opened in 1876. The initial idea of the architect was that the whole cemetery should be fenced with arcades and pavilions which was not fully implemented at the end. The reason was financial, but later it turned out to be a happy circumstance because the city of Zagreb at that time counted only 300,000 inhabitants. Thus, the arcades, which were built in 1979, remained on the west side just as the cemetery spred to the northeast, leaving the arcades as the wall between the living and the dead. In 1984. a morgue was built, in 1891 the Orthodox chapel of St. Peter and Paul, and the Chapel of the King of Kings was started in 1929, according to Bollé's designs which were then dead and buried right here. In the city of the dead, Mirogoj, stretching over the city of the living, Zagreb, as a reminder of the passage of all our happiness, sadness and persecution, were buried many Croatian distinguished persons. That's why it is often referred to as the Croatian Pantheon. Mirogoj is the most beautiful on the eve; Stroll through the Mirogoj's avalanches and a multitude of monuments to life in the most beautiful and largest Zagreb park. There are regular bus lines to Mirogoj, and nothing less pleasant is a walh up Medvednica's hill narrow hips. You can teke an 'electric car' through the cemetery which is driving to the Mirogoj shady ale without a fee, and no noise as well. Because peace is all we seek in this unique place.
