The Varaždin Cemetery

The Varaždin Cemetery


Unlike other cemeteries, the Varaždin cemetery, creaeted by the visionary soul of Herman Haller, is not only a resting place of the dead, but also a remarkable example of park architecture and a nature monument.

It presents a true resting-place for its visitors as well, with its compostion of birch trees, flowers, grass and slender cypresses, in a gentle play of light and shadows…

The Varaždin Cemetery was established in 1773, and in 1905 Herman Haller started working on it, planting around 7000 cypresses, maple trees, ash trees, red beeches, boxwood, magnolia trees and birches.

The shaping the cypresses into geometrical shapes gave the Cemetery the characteristics of a French park. One of the most valuable monuments on the Cemetery is the „Angel of Death“, the work of Robert Frangeš Mihanović, that symbolically represents the parting of the dead and the alive. Among others, visitors should visit the tomb- monument to Vatroslav Jagić, which is decorated with fresh flowers daily.

The Cemetery is open for visit every day:

In January, February, November and December from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In March, April and October from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
From May to September from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
