As morbid as it sounds this cemetery is actually a really nice place to visit. I bet that more than half of the natives haven’t even been here so you might find this as a challenge.
Built just before Second World War architect Plecnik had the idea to create a monumental shrine housing tombs of the most deserving Slovenians, also called a Slovenian pantheon, was given the name Navje, derived from Slavic mythology. It consists of an open, arcaded, classical building rebuilt from an old pavilion and a surrounding memorial park.
Just behind the main train and bus station this calming and relaxing place invites you to go for a short stroll between the tombs. It is no problem to sit on the grass and read and when it gets dark it can be a perfect place to play hide and seek.
Summer opening times are valid till end of September.
