Navje – Can cemeteries be fun?

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 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. It 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.

The “winter opening times” have been in effect since October 1st.
